lyrics never more apropos in my lifetime

you make me shiver
i feel so tender
we make a pretty good team
don’t get exhausted
i’ll do some driving
you oughta get you some sleep
get your instructions
follow directions,
then you should change your address
maybe tomorrow
maybe the next day,
whatever you think is best
burned all my notebooks
what good are notebooks?
they won’t help me survive
my chest is aching
burns like a furnace,
the burning keeps me alive
try to stay healthy
physical fitness,
don’t want to catch no disease
try to be careful
don’t take no chances
you better watch what you say
