Better Than Ever Blues, Part 1

APPEARS ON


Well my TV's broke and my icebox leaks
Been bummed out for two good weeks
I'm trying to get ahead in a world full of freaks
And talking at the top of my lungs
I keep all my money in a coffee can
I dream about a world in the palm of my hand
Check out the window for the Domino's man
And I wait on my break to come

I wait on my break to come, boys
I wait on my break to come
I check out the window for the Domino's man
And I wait on my break to come

Well I used to think it was cut and dry
A tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye
You can make up a wish and throw it in the sky
It will come true some day
Now it's hurry, hurry up and wait
We ain't gonna fish we oughtta cut bait
I wanna shake the hand that holds my fate
And tell them what I want to say

Cause I got something to say, boys
I got something to say
I want to shake the hand that holds my fate
And tell them what I want to say

My best friend's headed for a heart attack
My ends are all meeting out behind my back
I oughtta go on ahead and get hooked on crack
And knock off a liquor store
But I've seen the world way down the line
My ears will burn and my eyes will shine
Now I sing everybody these songs of mine
Sound better than ever before

Better than ever before, boys
Better than ever before
I'm gonna sing everybody these songs of mine
Sound better than ever before
