Well everybody here
Seems to like to laugh
Look at Johnny jivin’ across the floor
He can play the fool
And make a few mistakes
But all the same he’ll never be a bore
I’m glad to be so young
Talkin’ with my tongue
Glad to be so careless in my way
Glad to take a chance
And play against the odds
Glad to be so crazy in my day
Well I’m goin’ down to Laurel
It’s a dirty stinkin’ town yeah
But me I know exactly
What I’m going to find
Little girl
I’m goin’ to see
She is a fool for lovin’ me
But she’s in love
And love’s a funny state of mind
Well what was that you said
When you had a tear
Rolling down your cheek the other night
I couldn’t catch it all
There’s something going wrong
I hope you got it straightened out all right
Everything’s so loud and everything’s so fast
I hear your brother married once again
Yeah, the best of luck and all
And try to have some fun
They tell me this great life can always end
Well I’m goin’ down to Laurel
It’s a dirty stinkin’ town yeah
But me I know exactly what
I’m going to find
Little girl
I’m goin’ to see
She is a fool for lovin’ me
But she’s in love
And love’s a funny state of mind
Yes it is

I’m smilin’ from a car
I’m goin’ for a drive
Feel the whistle blowin’ breeze gone flying by
Mirror’s on the moon
Echo in the sun
See just a touch of madness in my eye
Please don’t mention rain
Please don’t talk of trains
Please don’t mention buildings burnin’ down
Everybody here
Seems to like to laugh
Either step in time or just don’t hang around
Well, well I’m goin’ down to Laurel
It’s a dirty stinkin’ town, yeah
But me I know exactly what I’m
Going to find
Little girl
I’m goin’ to see
She is a fool for lovin’ me
But she’s in love
And love’s a funny state of mind
Oh tell me what I say now
She’s in love and
Love’s a funny state of mind
