Lyrics:

 

1. Stop, look and listen baby, that's my philosophy
It's called rubberneckin' baby, but that's alright with me
Stop, look and listen baby, that's my philosophy
It's called rubberneckin' baby, but that's alright with me

 

Some people say I'm wasting time yeah, but I don't really care
I see what I like, I like what I see yeah, it gives me such a glow

 

First thing in the mornin', last thing at night
I look, stare, everywhere, and I see everything in sight, hey, hey, hey
Stop, look and listen baby, that's my philosophy
It's called rubberneckin' baby, but that's alright with me

People say I'm wasting time yeah, but I don't really care
I see what I like, I like what I see yeah, it gives me such a glow

Sittin' on the back porch, all by myself
Along came Mary Jane, and with somebody else


1. (repeat)
