Ain't no good life Not the one that I lead 'Cause the more I fight the sadness, yeah It only seems the more that I grieve
Well, I look back on the good times As some lost part of me I wanna know, tell me why is it so
Well, just 'cause I don't pray Lord, that don't mean I ain't forgiven Just 'cause I'm alive That don't mean I'm makin' a livin'
I'm gonna get myself together I'm gonna try a dyin' attempt Talkin' about the good times slippin' by Yeah, I tell ya now I don't even know where last month went
Well, I can't make no money, baby Well, 'cause my money's already spent And I know where it went I said, it went on that damn rent
Well, I don't mean change Baby, I mean foldin' money Well, I want lovin', said, I don't need nobody I don't need nobody, now
Ain't exactly my idea It's sort of old, borrowed and blue Just tryin' to say, don't try that straight life buddy Or you'll find it kind of hard on you
Woman, don't try to cook nothin' up Ooh, brother you know You'll only wind up in your own stew Just don't let nobody tell you Oh, what you oughta do
