My #1 Favorite Song by Styx is…
Too Much Time on My Hands is my favorite Styx song because of the
rhythm and lyrics of the song. The band does a great job on the this
song.
Now, I'm a jet-fuel genius
I can solve the world's problems without even trying
I got dozens of friends, and the fun never ends
Too much time on my hands
(T-T-T-T-T-Ticking away)
