about

Al Tuck's playful crooning, along with Cathy Porter's Tin Pan Alley piano and "Brooklyn girls" harmonies, plus her sister, dancer Sara Porter, on soft-shoe, makes this laid-back song, which includes Trish Pittman's recording debut on euphonium, and some whistling from Rachel MacLean.

lyrics

Let’s hang out for awhile
Do it up in style
Drink a bottle of the best and relax
We’ve got nothin’ else to do but look up at the moon
Smoke a hookah of hashish and lay back

Oh, the times like these
Few and far between
It’s ok to let go once in a while
Moments will add up like a collection in a cup
It’s ok to let go
I see you smile

Depends upon the mood
Some say it’s bad, I say it’s good
We’ll drink a bottle to our health, don’t resist
We’ve got time on our hands
Nothin’ in our heads
Let’s say thanks for the chance to exist

Oh, the times like these
Few and far between
It’s ok to let go once in a while
Moments will add up like a collection in a cup
It’s ok to let go, I see you smile
