Song Description

Humorous lyrics play on the idea that an idle mind might be a good thing for some people, and that not everyone's thoughts are worth even a penny.

Story Behind the Song

We wanted to do a zydeco for the Louisiana-themed record we were working on, and although this was originally a play on a Mose Allison piano song, You Talk Too Much, we patterned it on an old Boozoo Chavis two-step and had fun with it. I actually wrote t

Lyrics

YOU THINK TOO MUCH

I don't know
What you think
I know this much is true
An idle mind
Does the devil's work
Unless it belongs to you
Because you think too much
You think too much

Shoulda-woulda-coulda
maybe
Mighta oughta hadda
Your brain must be awful tired

Shoulda-woulda-coulda-
maybe
Mighta oughta hadda
It's torture watchin' you decide

Because you think too much

You don't care
What I think
Call it a common lie
And ramble on
About your latest find-
You make me want to cry
Because you think too much
You think too much

Shoulda-woulda-coulda
maybe
Mighta oughta hadda
Your brain must be awful tired

Shoulda-woulda-coulda-
maybe
Mighta oughta hadda
A penny for your thoughts is too high---
Because you think too much
