(Verse)
Yes baby, I've been drinking,
And I shouldn't have come by I know
But I found myself in trouble darling,
And I had nowhere else to go
(Verse)
Got some whiskey from the barman,
Got some cocaine from a friend
I just had to keep on moving,
Till I was back in your arms again
(Chorus)
I'm guilty, I'm guilty,
I'll be guilty all the rest of my life
How come I never do,
What I'm supposed to do
How come nothing that I try to do ever turns out right
(Verse)
You know, you know how it is with me baby,
You know I just can't stand myself
It takes a whole lot of medicine,
For me to pretend I’m somebody else.
(Chorus)
I'm guilty, I'm guilty,
I'll be guilty all the rest of my life
How come I never do,
What I'm supposed to do
How come nothing that I try to do ever turns out right
(Verse)
You know, you know how it is with me baby,
You know I just can't stand myself
It takes a whole lot of medicine,
For me to pretend I’m somebody else.
