One Breath At A Time

Lyrics: Fred Tackett
Music: Fred Tackett

One of the new songs on Little Feat's album Rooster Rag.

Yesterdayís done gone away
I never knew that girl to stay
Tomorrowís boy never does show
Heís only rumor now donít you know

I donít keep no cares about that
I donít have to be aware about that
Donít even give a little thought about that
íCause my baby girl says it ainít about that

Sheís got a smile, ainít no teasing
Time in this world is spent on pleasing me

My baby loves me
One breath at a time
Ainít no rhyme ainít no reason
Ainít no style ainít no season
My baby loves me
One breath at a time

All my friends say to me
They want to see some guarantee
Nobody wants to wait and see
Nobodyís digginí on a mystery

I donít keep no cares about that
I donít have to be aware about that
Donít even give a little thought about that
íCause my baby girl says it ainít about that

Sheís got a way to keep me swinging
Time in this world is spent on pleasing me

My baby loves me
One breath at a time
Ainít no rhyme ainít no reason
Ainít no style ainít no season
My baby loves me
One breath at a time

Iím less of a stallion more like a mule
Tired of carrying round all of these rules
More of a monk than a libertine
A bad American but Iím never mean

I donít keep no cares about that
I donít have to be aware about that
Donít even give a little thought about that
íCause my baby girl says it ainít about that

Sheís got a love thatís all old school
Sheís got a love with no time for a fool

My baby loves me
One breath at a time
Ainít no rhyme ainít no reason
Ainít no style ainít no season
My baby loves me
One breath at a time
