  • My my my, It's a beautiful world
    I like swimming in the sea
    I like to go out beyond the white breakers
    Where a man can still be free,
    Or a woman if you are one
    I like swimming in the sea

    My my my, It's a beautiful world
    I like drinking Irish Tea
    With a little bit of lap sang souchong
    I like making my own Tea

    My my my, It's a beautiful world
    I like driving in my car
    Roll the top down,
    Sometimes I travel quite far
    Drive to the ocean
    Stare up at the stars

    All around is anger, automatic guns
    Death in large numbers, no respect for woman, or our little ones
    I tried talking to Jesus, but he just put me on hold
    Said he'd been swamped by calls this week
    And He could not shake his cold

    And still this emptiness persists
    Perhaps this is as good as it gets
    When you've given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes
    Now I leave the party early at least with no regrets
    I watch the sun as it comes up I watch it as it sets
    Yeah this is as good as it gets

    My my my, It's a beautiful world
    I like sleeping with Marie
    She is one sexy girl full of mystery
    She says she doesn't love me, but she likes my company
    For now that's good enough for me Writer/s: GERALD V. CASALE, MARK MOTHERSBAUGH
