Jimmy Buffett – The Good Fight lyrics

They talk about the women too much
Women got 'em so confused
They don't talk about their lives as such
My life is all I got to lose

They take it with a grain of salt
And laugh at the complexities
They're good at pickin' all the faults
I keep laughin' so they don't pick me

Jesus if I had to quit tonight
I'd never know if I was Wrong or right
But That's just what you get
You gotta go the distance
If you're gonna fight a good fight, good fight

Keep it up & keep a good fight
Keep it up & keep a good fight
Yes it's got to be a good fight
All I want is just a good fight

Telephone begins to ring
That could only be one call
I might as well be on the moon
Standin' in the shower stall

I can't believe she picked it up
She didn't know the rules somehow
And then I hear her say hello-hello
Panic in the grey room now

Jesus if I had to quit tonight
She'd kill me whether I was wrong or right
But that's just what you get
You got to go the distance
If you wanna fight a good fight

You never know until you try
It's hard to see which side your on
Some people say your half way here
Some people say your half way gone
