  • When I think about those dog days
    I was doing everybody wrong
    Couldn't keep my thoughts straight
    Couldn't keep my trousers on
    Now I pray it's not too late
    To take the chance before it's gone

    That I don't go down that same road twice
    That I won't be taking Satan's advice
    I must admit I've paid that price
    But I'm saying goodbye to bad advice

    People you can save your judgment
    For somebody who might give a damn
    Go and blow your two cents
    On a horn in a traffic jam
    At any rate it's much too late to blame myself for who I am

    Just hope I don't go down that snake road twice
    That I won't be taking another bite
    I must admit temptation's nice
    But I'm saying goodbye to bad advice, oh
    You, bad advice

    I'm always making the same mistake
    All this taking is hard to take

    When I think about bygone days
    I was doing everybody wrong
    Always taking the long way
    And ending up where I don't belong
    Now I pray it's not too late to change the path I'm running on

    Oh I hope I don't go down that same road twice
    That I won't be taking Satan's advice
    I hope the memories will suffice
    But I'm saying goodbye
    I hope I don't go down that snake road twice
    That I won't be taking another bite

    I hope the memories will suffice
    But I'm saying goodbye
    I must admit temptation's nice
    But I'm saying goodbye to bad advice
    I'm saying goodbye to bad advice, oh
