My Mind Keeps Movin- Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Walk into a restaurant with chicken on my mindA
Look at the menu I want roastbeaf and wineB
A waitress comes up I order baked beans and breadC
Oh when she brings it I want ham'n eggs insteadC
Because my mind keeps a movin' bouncin' and a groovin'B
A flippin' floppin' every whichawayD
From minute to minute if my mind ain't really in itE
Never know just what I'm do or sayF
Sometimes I wake up happy sometimes I wake up meanB
Sometimes I wake up missin' somethin' I ain't seenB
Might wake up wasted and I might wake up deadC
Might wake up and look around and jump back into bedC
Because my mind keeps a movin'B
Sittin' home at midnight thinkin' bout Marie go to the phone I dial Carol LeeH
I say come by babe just as fast as you canB
And when she gets there I'm thinkin' bout AnnB
Because my mind keeps a movin'B
Fly off to Paris just to get away from homeI
Get off in London and I grab a boat for RomeI
Got to St Louis be in St Paul or else take a trip and go no place at allJ
Because my mind keeps a movin'B
I go to a psychiatrist to straighten my headC
Then I decide I need a chiropractor insteadC
Put salt in my coffee and ketchup in my tea only dig a chick that don't dig meH
Because my mind keeps a movin'B
Sometimes I don't shave and I look kinda weirdK
So shave off my hair and I grow a beardK
Shave off my beard dye my eyebrows greenB
Play myself a song upon a tambourineB
Because my mind keeps a movin'B
