Next Thing On My List Lyrics

Next Thing On My List by Toby Keith  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Next Thing On My List Under a old brass paper weight
is my list of things to do today.
Go to the bank and the hardware store,
put a new lock on the cellar door.
I cross 'em off as I get 'em done,
but when the sun is set
there's still more than a few things left I haven't got to yet.

(chorus)
Go for a walk, say a little prayer
take a deep breath of the mountain air
put on my glove, play some catch.
It's time that I make time for that.
Wade to shore, cast a line,
look up an old lost friend of mine.
Sit on the porch, and give my girl a kiss.
Start living, that's the next thing on my list.

Wouldn't change the course of fate,
if cutting grass just has to wait.
Cause I've got more important things,
like pushing my kid on the backyard swing.
I won't break my back for a million bucks I can't take to my grave.
So why put off for tomorrow what I could get done today.

(Chorus)
Like, go for a walk, say a little prayer,
take a deep breath of the mountain air.
Put on my glove and play some catch,
it's time that I make time for that.
Wade to shore, cast a line,
look up an old lost friend of mine.
Sit on the porch and give my girl a kiss.
Start living, that's the next thing on my list.

Raise a little hell, laugh till it hurts,
put an extra five in the plate at church.
Call up my folks, just to chat.
It's time that I make time for that.
Stay up late, then oversleep.
Show her what she means to me.
Catch up on all the things I've always missed.
Just start living, that's the next thing on my list.

Under an old brass paper weight,
my list of things to do today.
