Life is good!

Everything Goes to Hell

Why be sweet, be careful, why he kind?
a man has only one thing on his mind
Why ask politely why go lightly,
why say please?
They only want to get you on your knees
There are a few things I never could believe
A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who says he'll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don't believe you go to heaven
when you're good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

Laissez-faire mi amour, ce la vie
Shall I return to shore or swim
back out to sea?
The world don't care what a sailor
does in town
It's hanging in the windows
by the pound
I don't believe you go to heaven
when you're good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...

I only want to hear your purr and hear
you moan
you have another man who brings
the money home
I don't want dishes in the sink
don't ask me what I feel or what I think
There are few things I never could believe...

A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who says he'll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don't believe you go to heaven
when you're good
Everything goes to hell, anyway...
