The Good Life (Is Wasted)

  • I’m not the kind of man
    To live comfortably
    Just give it some time
    And you’ll see

    And I’d like to show you
    How wrong you can be
    'Cause the good life is
    Is wasted on me

    Together there’s nothing
    That cannot be fetched
    Or haven’t you noticed this yet

    Some friends gone forever
    And sometimes our pets
    And then there’s that thing with the rest of the world
    Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
    Just like the hound dog
    That begged for his bone
    And I won’t be going there soon

    I’m just as guilty
    As guilty can be
    'Cause the good life is
    Is wasted on me Publisher: SCHUBERT MUSIC PUBLISHING INC.
