Cold beer and a strange cigarette
Getting you high getting you wet
Falling in love falling out of debt
Straight gay black or white
Strutting in the dark hiding in the light
Doing it wrong doing it right just doing it

You got your life on the one hand
Mine in the other
I got the right we all got the right

One man's meat is the other man's lousy luck
One man's meat is someone's empty well
One man's meat is some guy's aching butt
One man's meat is another man's living hell

Short fat thick or thin
Take it in the gut take it on the chin
Living in glory living in sin
Hard day's work going down slow
Riding the road where the greengrass grows
Watching in die what d'you know
Watch it

You got your life on the one hand
Mine in the other
I got the right

One man's meat is the other man's lousy luck
One man's meat is someone's empty well
One man's meat is some guy's aching butt
One man's meat is another man's living hell
