On Country Time
While you're waiting for your ride at the station
you could get a cup of coffee
but the cafe that's supposed to be open at seven
still isn't at seven-thirty
and someone should be at the cab company
but no one picks up the line
but they're not really late, they're just on country time.
You forgot to set your watch back to country time.
So slow down, Mr. Uptown,
you might wear your feet out racing around in the city
but here in the country it looks kind-of funny,
you're walking and talking so quickly
and if you want to watch that clock,
you'd better learn to read it right.
It's a wagging tail past a cat's meow on country time.
It's a quarter to a cool autumn breeze on country time.
It's half-past your first lemonade on country time.
It's coming up to a neighborly "hello" on country time.
It's a dog's hair before the stroke of lunch on country time.
