    lyrics:

    I got some bucks in my pocket a gut full of blues
    churning in my stomach, in my heart, in my shoes
    burning in my mouth like a stubborn dying tooth

    I been searching every corner bar
    for good time to ignite this
    lonely lonely carcass
    moping round lame and lifeless
    oh me oh my man the irony is priceless
    the cure of my blues is the cause of them too

    hey hey hey ha ha ha hee hee hee
    if god has got a sense of humor the joke is on me

    do what I want, I got style, I got grace
    so gracefully falling down on my face
    it aint cool it aint good but it's o.k.
    I'll get on up out this rut someday

    I get stuck, I get stumped, I get carried away
    stuck in all the in betweens that aint got no names
    caught up in the bramble, stranded in the rain
    I keep on writing rambling songs
    but I aint going no place

    self medicated, frustrated and jaded
    so lonely lonely lonely getting fucked up and faded
    there's so many girls in the bar tonight for a change
    but my words keep getting slurred
    as they make their way out my face

    I aint known a woman's touch now for so many days
    I've reached the born-again-virgin stage
    of not getting laid
    I know what to say and I know what to do
    but I'm too messed up to get up and make a move
