Lyrics

Pencil Me In

Pencil Me In
Old Friend
Pencil me in.
I know you’re really busy with your clients and deals
You don’t have to put it down in pen.
You’ve got a lot of people depending on you
So you can bail if it’s overwhelmin’
Just pencil me in, old friend.
Pencil me in.

Do you remember
When we were younger
And we didn’t have schedules at all?
Spending all day long
Tubing on the river
With no laptops or cellphone calls?
Do you remember
Takin in a double feature
And a pizza and a pitcher or two?
Why not do it again?
It might be kind of good for you.


Pencil Me In
Old Friend
Pencil me in.
I know you’re having trouble with Blackberry thumb
And that carpal tunnel syndrome
You’ve got a lot of people depending on you
So you can bail if it’s overwhelmin’
Just pencil me in, old friend.
Pencil me in.


(Instrumental on Verse chorus verse)

Do you remember
How we used to wander
Through a park or a bookstore or mall?
We never had money to buy stuff
But it didn’t matter much at all
Do you remember
How we used to talk all night
Because we knew we could sleep till noon?
Why not stay up tonight?
It might be kind of good for you.


Pencil Me In
Old Friend
Pencil me in.
I know you’re really busy with your clients and deals
You don’t have to put it down in pen.
You’ve got a lot of people depending on you
So you can bail if it’s a big problem.
Just pencil me in, old friend.
Pencil me in.
