  • Your mama's got nothing on me
    Your daddy's got nothing on me
    And the world that sleeps in its lunacy
    It's got nothing on me

    No stars got nothing on me
    Your sun's got nothing on me
    And the fool who sees it's the thief that needs
    Has got nothing on me

    You know it's not because the light here gets brighter
    And it's not that I'm evil
    I got a friend in the devil
    But I can't even be your friend
    I can't even be your friend
    I can't even be your friend

    I can get so wound up, but I feel alright
    And if I get some rest, yeah that'd be nice
    When I shouldn't do it, I still do it
    What you think's got nothing to do with this
    Before you were born, I was already sinning

    Yeah yeah yeah
    When I get too worked up, well I work it out
    And if I get too down, I just shout it out
    I may not have it all, but the rest will do
    And it's nothing against or to do with you
    Before you were born, I was already sinning

    It's not because the light here is brighter
    And it's not that I'm evil
    I just don't like to pretend
    That I could ever be your friend

    If you don't listen so good, I can hum it out
    Na na na na na na na na
    I know I shouldn't do it, I just do it
    And what you think's got nothing to do with it
    Before you were born, I was already sinning

    It's not because the light here is brighter
    And it's not that I'm evil
    I just don't like to pretend
    I could be your friend
    I could never be your friend
    I never needed a friend
    I don't wanna be friends
    You'll never find a friend like me Writer/s: BRIAN JOSEPH BURTON, JOHN BALDWIN GOURLEY
