Qantas manager at Adelaide Airport Paul Newman praised his staff who volunteered their time.”It’s been heart-warming to see Qantas employees from all over volunteer their time to make Dwayne’s wish come true,” he said.”It’s really been all hands on deck to make this a reality.”Make-A-Wish chief executive Sally Bateman said granting such dreams helped sick children and their families in tough times.”Our wishes are about taking critically-ill children like Dwayne on a journey that creates a long-lasting impact and gives strength and hope,” she said.Almost a year of planning went into the expedition, which started when he was given a moon lamp to keep next to his bed.He also got regular letters from an astronaut and worked hard to design the flag he finally planted on the lunar surface.

Dwayne got to sit in the cockpit of a specially-prepared QantasLink plane before the big flight, then took his seat in the main cabin as it “blasted off”.In what seemed no time at all, the space adventurers arrived at the “moon” to a lunar landscape — created in an airport hangar from rocks, tonnes of sand and special visual effects.And just as the four-year-old suspected, aliens and superheroes including Spiderman and Batman, really do live on the moon.

Dwayne even got to plant a special flag in the sandy surface of the moon before making his return flight to Earth.’Incredible experience’Dwayne’s mother Rebecca described it as an “incredible experience”.She said her son had been distracted from recent medical treatment by the excitement of telling hospital staff he was about to head to the moon.”They were trying to put in a drip and, between seizures and through all the hurt, he was trying to tell the nurses about going to the moon,” she said.”It is something that is distracting him from what he’s going through at the moment.”She said he was “absolutely elated after the experience”.”He looked at the moon early this morning and said ‘I went there last night!’ It has been the most wonderful experience and our family will be forever grateful to Make-A-Wish and Qantas for making our little boy’s dream come true.”

Staff volunteered their time to help make the boy’s dream come true. After almost a year of planning, a four-year-old South Australian boy has had his wish to travel to the “moon” fulfilled.Dwayne Franke experiences daily seizures and his medication is unable to control his epilepsy.It means in the past year alone, he has been in hospital more than a dozen times.Last night — after some pretty extensive planning — the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted that wish.Donning an orange space suit, his parents took him to Adelaide Airport, where he was greeted by Darth Vader and Stormtroopers and issued a special ticket.

The endangered southern brown bandicoot seems by nature to be a shy and elusive creature — so much so that sightings in the wild are extremely rare.For a start, the miniature marsupials are nocturnal, foraging on forest floors and scrub to feed on insects, ferns and plants.They only grow to about 30 centimetres in length, and their populations are patchy, distributed mostly throughout the nation’s southern fringes.Once common, their numbers have dwindled as a result of pressure from introduced species.But a motion sensor camera has captured a rare sighting of one of the bandicoots just south of Adelaide.Rangers say it is the first recorded sighting of the animal in nearly four decades in Kuitpo Forest near Kangarilla.”This is the first visual confirmation of the bandicoot within Forestry SA land since the Ash Wednesday fires in 1983,” Kuitpo ranger Lennan Whiting said.

An ecologist says blackberry plants can provide good protection from predators. For this reason blackberry removal must be staged and strategic,” Dr Sparrow said.”Areas of dense native understorey need to be in place as alternative habitat before blackberry is taken out.”

In 2016, volunteers began creating a wildlife corridor across 19 properties between Belair National Park and Mark Oliphant Conservation Park in the Adelaide Hills to support the bandicoots.Last year, the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife said residents could do simple things to help preserve the region’s southern brown bandicoot population.”Plant some native species — keep your own pets under control, talk to your neighbours [and] see if they will do the same,” CEO Ian Darbyshire said.”[People can] create some corridors throughout the Mount Lofty Ranges [Adelaide Hills] so the animals can move around, mate, meet and spread the gene pool around.”Dr Sparrow said weed control efforts for blackberries would aim to contain the plants rather than immediately remove them, to give more time for native vegetation to regenerate.Rangers now plan to put more sensor cameras in other areas of remnant vegetation in Mount Lofty Ranges forest reserves as they hope to gain a better understanding of the bandicoots’ distribution.They say there are 20,000 hectares of state forest in the region and close to one-third is managed solely for biodiversity conservation. (ABC News: Eliza Buzacott-Speer)
The fires killed 14 people in the Adelaide Hills region and another 14 in the south-east of South Australia.Local Landcare volunteers and environment staff had suspected the species’ presence and reported diggings last spring, so cameras were set up in the hope of getting a confirmation.”The sighting took place in native remnant vegetation well suited to bandicoots — stringybark woodland with a dense understorey of mainly bracken and yaccas,” ecologist Elisa Sparrow said.She said there were also blackberry bushes in the area, which provided excellent protection from predators.”[It] is also a declared weed.

Let’s paw-ty — lavish birthday bashes all the rage for dogs

If you think about it the things we need to provide to our children the dogs deserve the same thing,” Dr Smith said.Throwing your pet a party may be more about you than your four-legged friend.”If you think about children’s birthday parties these days, everybody’s first birthday parties for their children become epic events with big birthday cakes; it’s a similar thing with pet parties, they are becoming reflections of ourselves, our relationships and our status,” Dr Smith said.”A lot is anthropomorphism; we impart human traits and feelings and thoughts onto objects and non-human animals.” Dog owners are throwing their beloved pooches parties that rival even the most elaborate kids’ birthday celebrations.The so-called dog ‘paw-ty’ has all the trimmings of an Instagram-worthy child’s affair complete with party hats and tiaras, balloons, bubbles, decorations, guest party bags and treats.Kymberlee Alderson has embraced the trend and expects 43 border collies will attend Bailey’s second birthday this weekend.”It’s taken a lot of planning, making bunting, ordering decorations, making sure it all gets here on time,” Ms Alderson said. He said that dogs were social animals but there were important factors to consider at a dog party.He recommended dog parties be hosted in a large, neutral space to help reduce territorial behaviour.”The best toy for a dog is another dog, so when we think about bringing dogs together for these sorts of events we want to make sure that we minimise their access to toys and bones and possibly even their owners,” Professor McGreevy said.”All those items dogs tend to regard as resources so we don’t want resource guarding behaviours at something that is supposed to be fun for everyone.”Professor McGreevy has conducted research that shows humans often fail to understand what makes dogs happy.Signs that your dog is not happy includes them fleeing, freezing or flirting (showing submissive behaviour).”They are so amenable that we can imagine they are having a good time even if we are failing to meet their behavioural needs.”

She hosted a large party for Bailey’s first birthday and regularly makes the 500-kilometre round trip from her home in Cobdogla to Adelaide to take her pup to parties and beach walks.She said dog parties were becoming common among certain types of dog owners.”It’s sort of an Instagram thing, a lot of people do it with their dogs if they have an Instagram page,” Ms Alderson said.

More about the owners than their dogsDr Bradley Smith is a senior lecturer of psychology at CQUniversity and he said that dogs required food, water, comfort, security and physical and mental exercise.”They are very similar to a child really. External Link:

Bailey’s party will be held at Lake Bonney in Barmera in South Australia’s Riverland and there will be kayaks available for owners to take their dogs for a paddle as well as doggie treats, balls and bubbles.”Last year we got pup cakes from a supplier in Adelaide,” Ms Alderson said.The dogs’ owners are all members of Facebook group Border Collie Owners South Australia and they will travel from across the state for the party.Dog owners enjoy chance to socialiseIt is not just a chance for the dogs to play but for their owners to meet each other and discuss their pooches — and they certainly draw a few smiles from passers-by.”Everyone loves it; you don’t see that many of the one breed all at once, so it’s really good,” Ms Alderson said.But what do dogs make of all the birthday fuss?

Umpteen theories of how Humpty Doo got its name

Map:
Darwin 0800
She describes it as being 40 miles from Darwin and 20 miles from the railway line.”She’s quite explicit about that.”

Less explicit is why Masson opted for an alternative spelling of the station which seems to be without precedent.”Again this is pure speculation, but she may have thought that it did have an Indigenous origin, and maybe she was just trying to refer back to that by changing the spelling slightly,” Mr Hubber said.The NT Place Names Register states this spelling was later translated into “umdudu”, an “English language corruption of the aboriginal (sic) term which meant ‘A popular resting place'”.However, Mr Hubber said he had been unable to find similar words in Djerimanga and Larrakia word lists, two local Indigenous groups from which landmarks are most likely to have taken their names.”I couldn’t find any basis for that claim,” he said.Umpteen theoriesAnyone familiar with the history of pre-internet communications will be aware that humpty doo recalls another word.According to at least one edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, an umpty is a “fanciful representation of the dash in Morse code”.During World War I, efforts to conceal information about army units in communications precipitated another much more common term: umpteen.It is important, Mr Hubber said, to remember that Darwin was a telegraph town in the early 20th century and many people would have been familiar with this lingo.”I have also come across a reference to a building called Humpty Doo, and it was located in the [Darwin] esplanade which is where all the cable station buildings were located,” he said. (Supplied: Trove)
According to the NT Place Names Register, the station was originally known as Umpity Doo.Does that mean there is a relationship between the place and the phrase? Photo:
A Daily Telegraph article from 1910 makes use of humpty doo. Was the cattle station itself upside down or shattered beyond repair?”I’d only be guessing,” Mr Hubber said.”So this is speculation that perhaps the station name might’ve derived from some sort of Indigenous word that I don’t know about.”But because the colloquial phrase was also common at the same time and might’ve sounded like the Indigenous phrase, it became the popular usage.”In other words, it is possible that the colloquialism and a pre-existing Indigenous term merged.Umdidu then umduduThe theory that humpty doo is a variation of an Indigenous word is given some credence by words such as didgeridoo and the New South Wales town Dunedoo, which have similar phonetics.But as with many chapters in the story of Humpty Doo, any direct link has been further obfuscated by history.In 1915, Elsie Masson, the governess of then administrator John Gilruth’s children, published a book detailing her travels through different corners of the Territory.In An Untamed Territory, the Northern Territory of Australia, one chapter in particular draws attention. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
“It seemed to be some sort of club or a mess hall that might’ve been used by the cable station employees, so there’s another little inkling there as well.”Is there any demonstrable link between the hall and the station?”I would say possibly the telegraph guys used the word umpty, they’ve gone to the mess hall, they’ve termed it Humpty Doo, and somehow that might’ve been picked up by the station.”Or the other way around.”But history has many gaps, and it’s hard to be more than inconclusive. “She describes a journey to a place that she calls Umdidu which is very similar in name to Humpty Doo,” Mr Hubber said.”And it’s exactly where [the station] is located. (Wikimedia Commons: Stuart Edwards)
Any connection to Humpty Dumpty?A quick search of digital archives shows “humpty doo” was common parlance from as early as the 1890s, but people were not referring to the town or station.In fact, up until about the early-mid 20th century, to be humpty doo was to be all stuffed up or upside down.It is easy enough to draw a link from this colloquialism to the sorry fate of the nursery rhyme character.”I’m guessing that it might actually go back to that old nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty, and how Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall and got broken and couldn’t get put back together,” Mr Hubber said.”I’m thinking there might be some connection there.”But the term was not transferred onto a place until about 1910, with the establishment of Humpty Doo station eight kilometres east of where the township came to stand.

Humpty Doo is a town of 4,300 people south-east of Darwin. Humpty Doo. It’s a place that’s been mythologised by songwriters and canonised in lists of strange Australian town names.The Doo, as it’s known to some locals, is a town of 4,300 people 40 kilometres out of Darwin, but the origin of its name continues to mystify even the most widely read local historians.The quick answer is that the town takes its name from a cattle station to its east that was established early last century. Photo:

As the general store and pub were established from the late 1960s and the town grew into what it is today, the name stuck.The more difficult answer comes down to how that cattle station got its name.According to Brian Hubber from the Northern Territory Library, the name has variously been linked to colloquialisms, Morse code terminology and Indigenous languages.”I know that it’s always created a lot of questions, and maybe not controversy, but lots of competing theories and possible origins,” he said.

If I ever meet Erykah Badu, I’ma fuck her
If I ever see you, out in public, I’ma touch you
Threw a meat, stayin’ busta free, I’ll bust a busta
In a busted bus, nigga, my interior peanut butter
Shawty said that that my kid, prolly is cause I was beatin’ her
Prolly not, it prolly is, really think that I’ll feed her
I was in the DMV and I was runnin’ up to meter
Settin’ trends, goin’ Super Saiyan, whipped out like Vegeta
In a stolo smokin’ reefer, rockin’ Polo in Adidas
Ridin’ olo with the Nina, I don’t know no nigga meaner

Key Glock – Hot

[Intro]
Hey
Hey I know I’m hot
And you not, hah
[Chorus]
All these niggas say they hot, shit you must not heard of Glock
Mister pull up let it pop, mister don’t play ’bout his guap
And ever since a tot I been playin’ ’round with them blocks
Close your legs, ho give me top, and my coupe cruise like a yacht
Pipe down lil nigga, you ain’t hot
I just left the lot, yeah you know I gets a lot
Very large amounts, yeah you know what I’m about
No we don’t play around, get ’em in and get ’em out
[Verse 1]
Goddamn all this water got me drowning
VVS’s, forty thousand my medallion
I been fly bitch, I don’t need no pilot
Every time I’m Gucci’d down, I be styling
Racks for my shirt, belt, and shoes, I’m fresher than you
Just pulled up in the coupe, had the kids like ooh
No I don’t wear no Trues, but my pockets on Buddha
My chopper got a cooler, pull up, we bust your medula
Goddamn Lil Glock, you too hot
How you rack your bands and get another drop? How you put all of them diamonds in your watch? Why the fuck you go and get another charm? [Chorus]
All these niggas say they hot, shit you must not heard of Glock
Mister pull up let it pop, mister don’t play ’bout his guap
And ever since a tot I been playin’ ’round with them blocks
Close your legs, ho give me top, and my coupe cruise like a yacht
Pipe down lil nigga, you ain’t hot
I just left the lot, yeah you know I gets a lot
Very large amounts, yeah you know what I’m about
No we don’t play around, get ’em in and get ’em out
[Verse 2]
Same young nigga riding ’round with them rounds
You just the same nigga riding ’round talking down
Naw we don’t play around, turn your smile into a frown
Make my niggas clear the crowd
Run in when them guns sound (gang shit)
Ah shit, breaking news, he got hit with the tool
They came up on the block and then they popped him and got loose
They came up on the block and then they sweeped it like a broom
I came up off the block then turned all my rocks into jewels, bitch
[Chorus]
All these niggas say they hot, shit you must not heard of Glock
Mister pull up let it pop, mister don’t play ’bout his guap
And ever since a tot I been playin’ ’round with them blocks
Close your legs, ho give me top, and my coupe cruise like a yacht
Pipe down lil nigga, you ain’t hot
I just left the lot, yeah you know I gets a lot
Very large amounts, yeah you know what I’m about
No we don’t play around, get ’em in and get ’em out

[Intro]
Lil Purpp, aye this shit sound Smokepurpp as fuck
Lil Purpp bless yo trap
Oh my God, Ronny
[Chorus]
Damn, I geek a lot, I geek a lot and a lot

Stop tryin’ come in my spot

Tell one to come in my spot
I’m off the bean, not the Wok
[Verse]
Wait, yeah I got rich

Smokin’ on thoink with yo bitch
She say my gas really hit
Big choppas, ride with mad yoppas
She see the racks on the floor and she hop on my dick like she was a grasshopper
Gucci my kicks, I got designer from head to my kicks
Even my pants are designer, they Rick
Walk in the mall and spend a lil’ brick
I’m off the Xan and I’m off the drank
Look at my Backwood it’s full of that stank
Diamonds just water, they came from a tank
I pop a bean and get racks at the bank

[Chorus]
Damn, I geek a lot, I geek a lot and a lot
I’m off the Xan, pour the Wok
And I got VVS diamonds my watch
Stop tryin’ come in my spot
I want the brain, want the top
Tell one to come in my spot
I’m off the bean, not the Wok
Damn, I geek a lot, I geek a lot and a lot
I’m off the Xan, pour the Wok
And I got VVS diamonds my watch
Stop tryin’ come in my spot
I want the brain, want the top
Tell one to come in my spot
I’m off the bean, not the Wok

Rich Homie Quan – Changed

Money made, but I’m the same me, nigga
[Chorus]
Don’t let that money fool ya, boy, ain’t shit changed
We in Miami on Biscayne
Forty-thousand for the big face
And they want another fifty-thousand just to bust it down
I’ve been doing this shit since sixth grade
Teachers told me I would never make
No money off these words, now I’m not worried ’bout nobody
Told that same teacher, "Look at me" and I didn’t go to college [Intro]
If you ever thought I was going broke
You thought wrong, my nigga
If you ever think I was falling off
Fuck you then
[Chorus]
Don’t let that money fool ya, boy, ain’t shit changed
We in Miami on Biscayne
Forty-thousand for the big face
And they want another fifty-thousand just to bust it down
I’ve been doing this shit since sixth grade
Teachers told me I would never make
No money off these words, now I’m not worried ’bout nobody
Told that same teacher, "Look at me" and I didn’t go to college
[Verse 1]
We ’bout to party just like Rick James
Oh, now I’m up by Biscayne
Albert Einstein, I’m insane
But I’m a fool with them numbers on the corner with some lumber
In the trap, got off a whole thang
I flushed it all when them folks came
Aye, I might sacrifice a two just, so I can make ten
Got it out the street, made my name in the pavement
I wasn’t in the club, put it up, I was saving
Yeah, I love my plug, he show love, he not racist
Came home, saw a million, then I made some
Never switch it up, I’m the same Quan

[Chorus]
Don’t let that money fool ya, boy, ain’t shit changed
We in Miami on Biscayne
Forty-thousand for the big face
And they want another fifty-thousand just to bust it down
I’ve been doing this shit since sixth grade
Teachers told me I would never make
No money off these words, now I’m not worried ’bout nobody
Told that same teacher, "Look at me" and I didn’t go to college
[Verse 2]
My only friend is a Ben Frank
I wanted money just like Kinte
Hustling hard to keep the rent paid
Told mama close the door, ’cause I’m jumpin’ off the porch
My only mission is to get paid
Lock that money in a big safe
Ain’t no tint up on the cars, so I know they know it’s me
I ain’t never had shit, I wear my watch when I go to sleep
I put a lil’ money in my smile, that the reason I show my teeth
And I can afford to pay a nigga a couple a thousand a month just to roll up my weed
I got my money, moved out the hood, can you blame me, nigga?

Rich Brian – Introvert (feat. Joji) (Lyric Video)

[Chorus: Joji]
Every time I go closer to the road, leavin’ my light
I just wanna know why I’m feelin’ so lonely at night
It’s my fault, it’s my life, I’m so cold, I’m so high, get it right
I don’t care, but I fight, we don’t lose, we just ride, let it ride
[Verse 1: Rich Brian]
Sittin’ in my crib thinkin’ ’bout shit
That I never done, but I wish I did
Actin’ like I’m fine, but I’m losin’ it
Coulda kissed that girl, but it ain’t relevant
Coulda made that move, I’m regrettin’ it
Feelin’ so low, like I’m on 2%
Been livin’ life like it’s a tournament
Loneliness turned off and now it’s on again
Tell myself run, ain’t no lookin’ back
Only time I do is when I’m reachin’ for the stack
Back on my old ways, on my old Mac
Thinkin’ ’bout my old days, I’ll never go back
Fuck that, tryna get myself my own crib
Be an independent man, I might just suck my own dick
Ain’t got time, baby just tryna gold dig
Gotta get through all the people that I roll with
[Chorus: Joji]
Every time I go closer to the road, leavin’ my light
I just wanna know why I’m feelin’ so lonely at night
It’s my fault, it’s my life, I’m so cold, I’m so high, get it right
I don’t care, but I fight, we don’t lose, we just ride, let it ride

[Verse 2: Rich Brian]
Yeah, hole in my soul, don’t know how to fill it up
Cannot let nobody in, hopin’ that they understand
Can’t change my ways, sins all white, get through my days
This just how your boy was raised, vigilant in every way
Every single night I’ve been stayin’ up
My imagination’s takin’ flight and it’s takin’ off
And my time is slowly tickin’ now, I don’t wanna wait anymore
Don’t wanna be erased, wanna make a change
[Bridge: Joji & Rich Brian]
Please don’t run me, I’ve just lost my way
(My way, my way, my way)
Leave no trace of my misery, get me through the day
Get me through the day (get me through the-)
[Chorus: Joji]
Every time I go closer to the road, leavin’ my light
I just want to know why I’m feelin’ so lonely at night
It’s my fault, it’s my life, I’m so cold, I’m so high, get it right
I don’t care, but I fight, we don’t lose, we just ride, let it ride

Justin Timberlake – Supplies (On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) (Live)

[Refrain]
Ain’t no need of stopping, girl
Yeah, there ain’t no need of stopping, girl
Yeah, okay
[Verse 1]
Met you out on Broadway on the hottest night in town
We arrived solo but we were being chased around
Saw you being cornered by some guy you used to know
Stepped in between the both of y’all
Said "I’m leaving, do you wanna go?"
[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’ll be the light when you can’t see
I’ll be the wood when you need heat
I’ll be the generator, turn me on when you need electricity
Some shit’s ’bout to go down, I’ll be the one with the level head
The world could end now
Baby, we’ll be living in The Walking Dead
[Chorus]
‘Cause I got supplie-ie-ies
Supplie-ie-ies
I got you, I got supplie-ie-ies
Supplie-ie-ies

[Verse 2]
I don’t know if you remember this, but I was out of town
Flew in on a 3 AM just to show up and hear your sounds
The multiple times, stop, hit the set
You ain’t had it that way, I can guarantee you that
[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’ll be the light when you can’t see
I’ll be the wood when you need heat
I’ll be the generator, turn me on when you need electricity
Some shit’s ’bout to go down, I’ll be the one with the level head
The world could end now
Baby, we’ll be living in The Walking Dead
[Chorus]
‘Cause I got supplie-ie-ies
Supplie-ie-ies
I got you, I got supplie-ie-ies
Supplie-ie-ies
[Verse 3]
Ain’t no need of stopping, girl
Can’t nobody top it, girl
Ain’t no better option, girl (okay)
Ain’t nobody stopping, girl
This here when I drop in, girl
I work, work when I clock in, girl (okay)

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ll be the light when you can’t see
I’ll be the wood when you need heat
I’ll be the generator, turn me on when you need electricity
Some shit’s about to go down, I’ll be the one with the level head
The world could end now
Baby, we’ll be living in The Walking Dead
[Bridge]
Now I wanna know everything
Don’t leave a single detail out
I’ll get my lighter, just fell out
It makes me a generous lover
Ooh, I wanna see everything
So don’t leave a single detail out
I want it all on the table
The personal way to, wait
[Refrain]
Ain’t no need of stopping, girl
Yeah, there ain’t no need of stopping, girl
Yeah, okay
[Chorus]
‘Cause I got supplie-ie-ies
Supplie-ie-ies
I got you, I got supplie-ie-ies
Supplie-ie-ies

Justin Timberlake – Say Something (feat. Chris Stapleton) (On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) (Live)

[Intro: Justin Timberlake]
Oh, yeah, alright
Ooh
[Verse 1: Justin Timberlake]
Everyone knows all about my direction
And in my heart somewhere I wanna go there
Still I don’t go there
[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
Everybody says say something
Say something, say something
Say something, say something
I don’t wanna get caught, up in the rhythm of it
But I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it
[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton]
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
[Verse 2: Chris Stapleton & Justin Timberlake]
Everyone knows all about my transgressions
Still in my heart somewhere, there’s melody and harmony
For you and me, tonight (whoa)
I hear them call my name

[Chorus: Chris Stapleton & Justin Timberlake]
Everybody says say something
Say something, say something
Say something, say something
I don’t want to get caught, up in the rhythm of it
But I can’t get help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it
[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton]
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
[Bridge: Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton]
Sometimes the greatest way to say something
Is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something
Is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something
Is to say nothing

[Chorus 2: Both & Justin Timberlake]
But I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it
[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton]
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something I can’t have
(maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
[Bridge: Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton]
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing
