Backyard Babies – Like A Child lyrics

Sometimes I could steal something real
Sometimes I could steal money
From my old man's wallet, when he didn't know whether he was givin' it away
Or maybe lost it somehow yesterday
When I go to work it's like I feel ashamed
Why do every single human have to live in pain?
All I wanna do is just play my guitar
'Cause I'm a long haired boy
Just a singer in a rock'n'roll band ... yes, I am
Everybody needs just a little good friend to keep up the good mood
When the bottle don't help
A blond bitch took my heart and I'm doing okay
Just a smalltown boy, with rock'n'roll on my mind
Sometimes I get drunk,sometimes I get laid
and sometimes you can kiss my ass and don't feel no shame
As long as you respect me for who I am
Gonna kill some time as a long haired rock'n'roll star
They say you need some help, gotta pray to the lord
They say you need some help, but I'll do alright
You see, I'm not even sure if he exists or more
and I don't give a damn what you believe in
Now that's for sure
They say I'm like a child but they don't know what a child is like
Almighty, please tell me what to do
'Cause they say I believe in you
Gonna sit out in the sun and wonder what I've done
Well, you think I'm a nuts when I don't play your game
So now listen to a story that I have to tell
You don't know a thing, honey what life is about
I'm going home now, honey
Tell your story crap another time
They say you need some help, gotta pray to the lord
They say you need some help, but I'll do alright
You see, I'm not even sure if he exists or more
and I don't give a damn what you believe in
Now that's for sure
They say I'm like a child but they don't know what a child is like
