lyrics

Woke up from my deep freeze this morning,
locked in a deep freeze too boring,
same ole clothes, spit shine shoes,
I'm back in the mix, I got nothing to lose,
woke up from my deep sleep this morning.

I’ve been away too long, travelin’ centuries gone,
feelin’ like ole King Kong, I’m back in the mix.

They thawed me out didn’t break a sweat,
turns out they ain’t cured cancer yet,
pour me a drink, I could use some booze,
I'm back in the mix, I'll forget my blues,
go-on and light me up a cigarette.

I’ve been away too long, travelin’ centuries gone,
singin' an old swan song, I’m back in the mix.

Spent all those years frozen lonesome,
my cold heart, a block of ice,
sure would be swell to find a woman,
to love me and treat me right,
to love me and treat me nice.

Shakin’ off the dust it didn’t take long,
getting a second chance to right my wrongs,
bought a sharkskin suit, and alligator boots,
I'm back in the mix, let’s go for a cruise,
come-on and we’ll ink old school tattoos.

I've been away to long, travelin' centuries gone,
thinkin I might belong, I’m back in the mix.

Baby, baby, baby - I’m back in the mix,
baby, baby, baby - I’m back in the mix,
baby, baby, baby - I’m back in the mix.
