Never give an inch, that's what I say, son
When it's too tough for everybody else it is just right for me
Now, my lips are bleedin' from the selfish things that I've done
And my heart, it lies at the bottom of the ocean

Sometimes a great notion

Wanted to make love to my girl in the backseat of my car
So, I took her to the drive-in picture show
So, I filled her up with lies and a strong love potion
Now I'm sittin' here watchin' the movie alone

Sometimes a great notion

Sometimes the best laid plans have been known to go astray
Then you bet, you better put your seatbelt on
Just like your worst headache, well, a bad day don't go away
And you hit the ground runnin' against your emotions

Sometimes a great notion
Sometimes a great notion
