brother john lyrics – blues traveler

are you sleeping
brother john
if you feel like weeping
brother john
please won’t you hear me
brother john
just wait and see
brother john
can’t you see by the will of your hand
you can give it a try and just name your price
and everybody in this rock & roll band
don’t wanna preach don’t wanna give advice
but the music’s playing and all we’re saying
is come along and jam
and it’s hard to be believed what can be achieved
with an outstretched hand
are you sleeping
brother john
if you feel like weeping
brother john
please won’t you hear me
brother john
just wait and see
brother john
take a walk through the rest of your life
until you dare to take it step by step
(positively) till you make it yours
now tell me what’s left
is it really you and you when you gotta know
that things can change
just a pair of little eyes inside your head
that make you rearrange
are you sleeping
brother john
if you feel like weeping
brother john
please won’t you hear me
brother john
just wait and see
brother john
the things that hurt just won’t go away
but neither will we
doesn’t really matter either way cause you’re all you need
to set yourself free
it may sound hard but it’s just a start
to ride that wind
and you ain’t peter pan you’re just a man
you’ll get there again
are you sleeping
brother john
if you feel like weeping
brother john
please won’t you hear me
brother john
just wait and see
brother john
are you sleeping
brother john
if you feel like weeping
brother john
please won’t you hear me
brother john
just wait and see
brother john
just wait and see
just wait and see
just wait and see
just wait and see
are you guys ready to play follow the leader?
just wait and see
just wait and see
just wait and see
just wait and see
hush little baby, now don’t say a word
papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
and if that mockingbird don’t sing
papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
and if that diamond ring don’t shine
papa’s gonna buy you a bottle of wine
and when that bottle of wine gets done
papa’s gonna buy you a bb gun
papa’s gonna show you what it’s all about
or you’re gonna shoot your own eye out…
hey hey hey hey…
hey hey hey hey…
hey hey hey hey…
hey hey hey hey…
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you rise and shine
won’t you wait and see
