    Wooden box, long talk, I just had a…
    A long talk,
    I just had a wooden box long talk.
    I just had a long talk-with a wooden box.
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la…
    It said don’t think of me just choose to live free.
    Don’t think about the end, when it comes you’ll know it then.
    La, la, la, la…
    It said ain’t no reason to think of me.
    Just keep giving everything you were born to be.
    Play your music and sing your song.
    You know the refrain so sing along.
    La, la, la, la, la…

    A long talk with wooden box makes you sing and dance a lot. (Repeat)
    La, la, la, la, la.

  2. ‘The Bender’

    -I just had a long talk with a wooden box.
    -A telepathic heart to heart ’bout life’s hard knocks.
    -All mediated by Johnny Walker swimmin’ ’round on the rocks.
    -It’s therapy, so we all win in the end.

    -A tap on the top, rhythm’s conversation keeps the time.
    -I shoulder that body close, like a lost friend of mine.
    -It’s all coming back. Memory’s melody never blind.
    -Eyes closed and here we go jump in.

    -Rehearsed ’til precision, I pick out my deepest thoughts.
    -Improvised it talks back, claiming pain’s born, not bought.
    -We fret for hours with CHORDIAL breaks, but I won’t drop.
    -Just callused ’cause the notes I send it, all bent.

    -All ’round this joint hear what we’re sayin’.
    -If they understand that blue, they tap a foot and keep ‘a stayin’.
    -It’s deep Mississippi and at the crossroads they’re ‘a prayin’.
    -Here comes the Devil as the liquor’s sinkin’ in.

    -When they lay that man low, pine’s the choice for their loss.
    -Spruce and rosewood well worn, steel strung get my point across.
    -Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and BB covered all the cost.
    -We’ll have to GUIT this conversation goin’ sometime again.

    -To most it’s instrumental, but only a wooden box.
    -To me, it’s the key that opens a soul’s heavy locks.
    -Like talkin’ with a friend who knows ya from the block.
    Strummin’ on heart strings ’til they’re all thin.

  3. I just had a long talk
    With a wooden box
    I just took the wrong walk
    In my woolen socks
    I just heard a song rock
    All the Nashville jocks.
    It was her
    And the last time
    She kissed me.

  4. I just had a long talk
    With a wooden box
    She just took the wrong walk
    In her woolen soxs. (Socks)
    Hide me where the lambs flock
    Cuz she’s still a fox.
    You can hear her song rock
    All the Coolsville jocks.
    Oh..that was her
    The last woman
    To kiss you
