You know it sure is nice To have a little bit of money You know it’s been a long time Now finally honey We got a good place Stand and stare at the sun You know that look on your face Makes me not want to run You know it sure is nice To have a sexy sweet woman You know you got me on call You know you keep me comin’ I don’t have to worry Where I’m gettin’ mine from You know there’s lots of pretty girls You make ‘em all seem so dumb You know it sure is nice To have a place to sit You can leave me alone While I’m taking a shit Keep the door locked up No matter how you’re knockin’ I’m gonna be here a while So just keep on walking

Don’t worry about a thing We’ve got your number And we’ve got your name Believe us or not We know what you’re talking about Don’t mind if we listen in We heard where you started And we know where you live Got a GPS That follows you walking around Got satellites In orbit just to pin you down Don’t mind if we watch your place There’s always a camera Pointed at your face We’ve seen all your cats We know when you’re jerkin’ off Hungover with an aching head I’m working from home Eating breakfast in bed Can’t hear the T.V. I guess I better turn it up My coffees cold I guess I better fill it up

You say it’s not that bad Getting old You say it’s not that bad Getting old Always do what you’re told Always do what you’re told You say it’s not that bad Getting old You say it’s not that that rough Giving up You say it’s not that rough Giving up You used to be tough You used to be tough You say it’s not that rough Giving up You say you’re not that scared Of what isn’t there You say you’re not that scared Of what isn’t there Out of sight out of mind Out of sight out of mind You say you’re not that scared Of what isn’t there

Sometimes I lose my way I forget the words to say Been having trouble with myself And yes I am in pretty bad health That don’t bother me I tell you that’s a fact It’s easy to keep track Now that I’ve been there and back Some people try to make a deal They wanna tell me how to feel They wanna take a piece of mine So they can say they had a piece of mine They must think I’m asleep But I aint takin’ a nap It’s easy to keep track Now that I’ve been there and back Doing weird things with my time Far away from my peace of mind Taking things that are not mine I gotta clear my honky tonk mind So I’m out in the street Gotta get right back It’s easy to keep track Now that I’ve been there and back

Well I’m saving up my money Trying to buy transcendental meditation Cause lately all my visions They been keepin’ me awake at night Now you might think it’s funny You might think I need a new occupation If I can find my mantra babe I know that everything will be alright Well I spend my money boozin’ Writing my name on little pieces of paper I spend all the change Left in my pocket Leaving those generous tips Now I spend my time doing things Aint got nothing to do with my spirit By the time I’m gone to look for it I don’t even know where it went Well I know I aint a loser And I know I aint no square But I’m doin’ it just like my daddy did Before he cut off all of his hair Now they got ‘em a spiritual center And I can see it right through the fence But its seventeen hundred dollars Before they’re ever gonna let me in So I try to practice breathing But I can’t seem to get too deep Guided meditation It always makes me fall asleep I can’t afford a guru I can’t even afford the rug And there’s no way in hell I’m going fifteen days Without taking any drugs

I rode in on the wind on an eagle made of tin About a dollar in my pocket and a couple of broken ribs And my mind was on some shit that had sent my friends home again When all we’d come to do was pick and grin Juanita had a car and she liked the way I played guitar She gave me little white pills and pushed a little too hard Well my memory ain’t too exact but I saw some things that I can’t take back Thirty days on the road is thirty days of livin hard Well we done what we did acting like a couple kids And the only time it hurt was in the end So I’ll roll another one up take another drink from your loving cup Honey you can go all night I can keep it up In the end I blew my pay just getting back to the USA That’s the only place a man like me can stay Well I tell myself I’m free but that’s a line I just don’t believe Juanita you’re the only home for me

Daddy came down with a broken back I don’t believe he’s gonna make it back Momma went looking for something to do And I’m left here with self-centered blues They don’t seem to go away Should’ve saved my money when I was young But I just kept looking for a bit of fun Then the days went by and the years just flew And I’m all caught in self-centered blues They don’t seem to go away I sure made a lot of friends And I watched a lot of good things come to an end Without no water those seeds never grew And I’m left here with self-centered blues I had a friend, he lost track He turned a corner and he didn’t look back Didn’t check the signs, didn’t see the road Now the self-centered blues is all he knows They don’t seem to go away Working hard makes me depressed And I carry round thoughts that I don’t address Now the rain’s coming in Through the holes in my shoes And I’m all caught up in self-centered blues They don’t seem to go away

Well your momma looks good And you’re daddy’s rich too But they didn’t teach ya How to move How to groove Can you do what I do Can you do what I do Can you do what I

When you walk down the street You’re using your feet LSD When you look at your hand You look at your hand LSD When you look at the man Who is that man LSD
