lyrics

Stop by anytime
I've got the bookshelves loaded
And the back yard's green and blooming

Stop by anytime
Let the humidity curl your hair
And the mulberries stain your toes

A wasp on the pillow in the hideaway bed
A whippoorwill whistle to a spooked city kid
Dry leaves catching 'round the camping fire pit
Quicker than a rippling lake

If you could come around, I could take you out
To see the bugs in the big woods shine
So stop by, stop by anytime

Stop by anytime
The roommates are all doing fine
With summer colds and summer deadlines

Stop by anytime
To let another hour of news decide
If it's wrong to keep calm, or if it's wrong to fight

Cat bells jingle in the middle of the night
Fruit flies drown in the un-drunk wine
Cracked blue china in the rack going dry
Older than a rowing boat

If you could come around, I could show you down
To where the knots of the day untie
So stop by, stop by anytime

Stop by anytime
With a little bit of small talk and a straight spine
Before my good thumb gives up its good try

Stop by anytime
Why have you stayed away so long?
Come keep company for a while

Two skinny cousins in a sunfish race
The rope through their teeth and the sun on their face
Rounding the buoy at the back of the bay
Lighter than a skipping stone

If you could come around, I could show you how
To make the most of a lonesome night
Just stop by, stop by anytime
