Well I've took enough pills for big Memphis town

Ol' Jerry Lee's dranked enough whiskey to lift any ship off the ground

I'll be the first to admit

Sure do wish these people would quit it

You know it's tough enough

To straightin' up when these idiots won't leave you alone.

Jerry Lee Lewis's life would make a damn good country song

I've always done my best

I've tried to walk tall

Walk on Killer

But when the evening was over I was drunk stumbling into walls

Well I know I've earned my reputation

Can't they see I've found my salvation?

I guess they'd rather prove me wrong

My life would make a damn good country song

Lets get it now!

I've had my share of women

But they always seem to leave

Gonna put me another quarter

In the ol' pinball machine

Well I know the ol' Killers been wrong

That ol' change came over me took too long

My life would make a damn good country song

Jerry Lee Lewis's life would make a damn good country song!
