Song Lyrics

I sold my soul for the second time

`Cause the man He don`t pay me

I begged my landlord for some more time

He said "Son, the bills are waiting"

My best friend called me the other night

He said "Man - are you crazy"

My girlfriend told me to get a life

She said "Boy - you`re lazy"

But I don`t mind

As long as there`s a bed beneath the stars that shine

I`ll be fine, if you give me a minute, a man`s got a limit

I can`t get a life if my heart`s not in it

Hey Hey

I don`t mind

As long as there`s a bed beneath the stars that shine

I`ll be fine, if you give me a minute, a man`s got a limit

I can`t get a life if my heart`s not in it

Hey Hey

I lost my faith in the summer time

`Cause it don`t stop raining

The sky all day is as black as night

But I`m not complaining

I begged my doctor for one more line

He said "Son - words fail me"

It ain`t no place to be killing time

I guess, I`m just lazy

BUT I don`t mind

As long as there`s a bed beneath the stars that shine

I`ll be fine, if you give me a minute, a man`s got a limit

I can`t get a life if my heart`s not in it

Hey Hey
