I sold my soul for the second time
'Cause the man don't pay me
I begged my landlord for some more time
He said, "Son, the bills are waiting"

My best friend called me the other night
He said, "Man, are you crazy"
My girlfriend told me to get a life
She said, "Boy, you're lazy"

But I don't mind as long as there's a bed
Beneath the stars that shine
I'll be fine if you give me a minute
A man's got a limit
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it, hey, hey

I don't mind as long as there's a bed
Beneath the stars that shine
I'll be fine if you give me a minute
A man's got a limit
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it, hey, hey

I lost my faith in the summer time
'Cause it don't stop raining
The sky all day is as black as night
But I'm not complaining

I begged my doctor for one more line
He said, "Son, words fail me"
It ain't no place to be killing time
I guess I'm just lazy

I don't mind as long as there's a bed
Beneath the stars that shine
I'll be fine, if you give me a minute
A man's got a limit
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it, hey, hey
