High wide and handsome - that's how I like livin'.
High wide and handsome - that's how life should be.
Low skinny and ugly - that's for other people.
High wide and handsome suits me to a tee.
Song, wine, and women - they're my 3 favorites.
Beer, gin, and whiskey - that's 5, 6, and 4.
Saturday night I like eatin' and dancin'
And I sleep all day Sunday so's I'm ready for more.
High wide and handsome - you can't take it with you.
High wide and handsome - that's one way to go.
Let's live it up - might as well, we're all dying.
High wide and handsome - let's put on a show.
Can't quit what will kill me, so why even bother?
I love this hard livin', so why even try?
I'll be high wide and handsome when I kick the bucket.

I'll be high wide and handsome on the day that I die.
High wide and handsome - you can call it my motto.
High wide and handsome - call it my creed.
Money's just paper, liquor's thicker than water -
High wide and handsome in thought, word, and deed.
Have high wide and handsome carved on my head stone,
With the date I was born plus the date that I died,
Then take one from the other - all that's left is a
Number.
Just remember I laughed twice as hard as I cried.
High wide and handsome - that's how I like livin'.
High wide and handsome - that's how life should be.
Low skinny and ugly - that's for other people -
High wide and handsome suits me to a tee.
