If I Could Almost Read Your Mind lyrics

1970
--------------------------

If I could read their minds
I kind of think Id see
A lot of little questions there concerning me

For instance . . .

Has he aged, or did he lose weight?
I think I read somewhere that hes 38!
He hasnt lost his hair, he could stand a little dye!
He looks relaxed up there but whats he like inside?

How does old perra-la unwind?
I could almost read their minds!

From my publicity
Ill bet youd like to know,
If Ill stay awake thru the entire show?
You wonder whats beneath that florida tan
Deep down inside is he . . .
A dirty old man?

What does it really take to make him lose his cool?
Does he go anywhere without that tired stool?
Does he notice girls behinds?
I can almost read your minds!

It doesnt take a guy equipped with esp
To see whats cookin with your curiosity!
Is mister nice guy just a press agents pitch?
His dearest friends say hes a . . .

You never thought youd see me in las vegas live
I havent played a club since 1885!
Its spelled out in dollar signs ( you better believe it! )
I can almost read your minds!

How does old perra-louch unwind?
I can almost read your minds!

From my publicity
Ill bet youd like to know,
If Ill stay awake thru the entire show?
You wonder whats beneath that florida tan
Deep down inside is he . . .
A dirty old man?

You wonder what it takes to make him lose his cool?
Does he have holy water in his swimming pool?
Would he pinch a girls behind?

It doesnt take a guy equipped with esp
To see whats goin with your curiosity!
Is mister nice guy just a press agents pitch?
His dearest friends say hes a . . .

Now this may sound clich, but clichs are often true
Im glad you let me come an sing my songs to you
And Im happy that I find
That I could almost read your minds!
