When I've nothing else to do

I'll bring it on back home
And both of us later
You'll find us reading the classified (looking)
We're looking, looking, reading the classified (looking)

Gonna sit with my woman
Look in the column marked adoption
We're gonna get us one little boy and a girl
In the classified
And every time, every time with nothing else to do

[interlude; verse pattern]

Reading the classified

Gonna find me a love
Gonna find me a car
I wanna find me some land in the country far
I'm gonna drive my lady there
'Til I'll find an Evening Star

Mmm, when we've nothing else to do
