The lyrics to "Catch It"

Catch It
(For Dick who left the scene too damn soon)

If you want to ride the road
You got to pay the toll.
If you want a gushing geyser,
You're going to have to drill a bunch
Of nasty little holes
And if you want good loving
You better love with a little soul

Please understand, things can swing,
You get just about what you bring--
You better catch it, catch it while you can.

Now you've got to plow the ground
Before you can plant your seed--
And if you want a good crop.
You better study 'bout all those
Nasty little weeds.
And if you want good loving
You better understand your baby's needs--

Please understand, things can swing,
You get just about what you bring--
You better catch it, catch it while you can.

Well, a baby learns to walk,
'Cause he can't crawl so very far.
And how can you make sweet music, baby,
If you never learn to tune
Your own guitar.
And if you want good loving
You better know just who you are.

Please understand, things can swing,
You get just about what you bring--
You better catch it, catch it while you can.
