It's cold out this mornin'. It's raining, it's pourin'.
My back's acting up, but so what, I'm alive and I'm breathin'.
My baby's still mad from that fight that we had.
But her stomping around in the kitchen sure beats her leavin'.

I'm doin' better that I deserve.
I guess I could complain, oh but things could be worse.
There's a lot of folks out there with a lot of good reasons to curse.
All things considered I'm doin' better than I deserve.

Well, maybe someday all the debt'll be paid off.
I'll have all I want, but for now, hey, I don't mind dreamin'.
'Cause I got what I need. Got this house with some trees in the yard.
I got kids and a wife and a life I believe in.

I'm doin' better that I deserve.
I guess I could complain, oh but things could be worse.
There's a lot of folks out there with a lot of good reasons to curse.
All things considered I'm doin' better than I deserve.

I'm doin' better than I deserve.
The wolf ain't at my door, and I ain't out of work.
No matter how bad it gets, someone somewhere's got it worse.
All things considered, I'm doin' better than I deserve.

It's cold out this mornin'. It's raining, it's pourin'.
My back's acting up, but guess what, I'm alive and I'm breathin'.
Oh yeah, thank ya.

Well, maybe someday all the debt'll be paid off.
