Laissez faire

from the album "and Other Marvelous Mysteries"

Words and Music by Terry Taylor
1980 Cancel and Eat (ASCAP)
I will hurt for her respect
Withdraw is the best policy
And then may your laughter turn to tears
Arranged by my neutrality

(It's not) It's not the way of the world
I know nobody does it any more
(It's not) It's not the hippest of lifestyles, no
Everybody gonna think I'm strange

Laissez-faire, I keep it to myself
Laissez-faire, and give my heart to no one else
Laissez-faire, it's hands off, 'cause I...I love her

Another ship leaves a foreign shore
She's a stranger now, it pains me now
I can't believe her any more
It's best I leave, it's home I breathe

I bear too much the weight of the world
I know everybody gotta love their own
I swear nobody gonna take advantage
We learn everyone gonna reap what they sow

Laissez-faire

I will hurt for her respect
Withdraw is the best policy
And then may your laughter turn to tears
Arranged by my neutrality

I know nobody does it any more
(It's not) It's not the hippest of lifestyles, no
Everybody gonna think I'm strange

Laissez-faire, I keep it to myself
Laissez-faire, and give my heart to no one else
Laissez-faire, it's hands off, 'cause I...I...I love her

It's hands off 'cause I love her
(Laissez, laissez-faire...)
Everybody gonna think I'm strange

Laissez-faire, I keep it to myself
Laissez-faire, and give my heart to no one else
Laissez-faire, it's hands off, 'cause I...I...I love her

It's hands off 'cause I love her
(Laissez, laissez-faire...)
