Simply Must Move On

This song is by Steve Forbert and appears on the album The Place And The Time (2009).

High school weren't that bad
Some of it was fun
The jazz band got to swing, yeah
The track team got to run

But all that's in the past
And summer's come and gone
It's off to college now
You simply must move on

Gotta move on to another kinda time and space
Gotta move on in the ever running human race
Gotta move on, on the whistle blower starts to blow
Go

Your marriage could not last
A meltdown to divorce
The whole things over now
It's over yes of course

You stand out on the street
The whole lawn's overgrown
You look suspicious here
You simply must move on

Gotta move on to another kinda time and space
Gotta move on in the ever running human race
Gotta move on, on the whistle blower starts to blow
Go

(Instrumental Bridge)

Your home's a lovely place
You love it goodness knows
The perfect part of town
It's value only grows

But now it's grown too much
The taxes here alone
You can't afford to stay
You simply must move on

Gotta move on to another kinda time and space
Gotta move on in the ever running human race
Gotta move on, on the whistle blower starts to blow
Go

(Instrumental Interlude)

The ceiling's squiggly here
They move ya somewheres else
Your mind keeps shifting gears
Your kids are on themselves

Your next moves off the map
Beyond the twilight zone
You can't stay one more day
You simply must move on

Gotta move on to another kinda time and space
Gotta move on in the ever running human race
Gotta move on for the whistle just about to blow
Go

Go

Go

Go
