Life is hard and so am I
You'd better give me something
So I don't die
Novocaine for the soul

Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out

Life is white and I am black
Jesus and his lawyer
Are coming back oh my darling
Will you be here?

Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out

Guess who's living here
With the great undead
This paint by numbers life is messing
With my head, once again, once again

Life is good and I feel great
'Cuz mamma says I was
A great mistake
Novocaine for the soul
You'd better give me
Something to fill the hole

Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Baby, baby
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out

Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out

Everybody's better now
