I sold my soul for the second time, 'cause the man don't pay me.
My best friend called me the other night, he said, "Man, are you crazy?"

I'll be fine - if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit.

I don't mind, as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine.
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it.
I lost my faith in the summertime, 'cause it don't stop raining.
I begged my Doctor for one more line, he said "Son, words fail me!"

I'll be fine - if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit.
