I've heard all the stories, the failure and glories I haven't had either.
Boast and toast I'm the best and I'm a mess. I know I'm not neither. Thought
I was down as far as any man could go, thought my highs were giant size. I
Know now that's not so. I know you heard, know you heard, know you heard,
Don't believe a word, not a wrod, one word. It's been overblown, the truth
Should be known 'til now I couldn't see. Put my cards on the table while I'm
Still able, I guess I really don't know how to party. It's blown out of whack,
The truth is what's lacking, 'til now I couldn't see. The long and the short
I'd like to report, I guess I really don't know how to party. Really don't by
Any shape or form. Whether straight up in the sunshine or passed out in the
Storm don't know how but now I know I don't will it help me out? No, it
Probably won't. Ten nine ain't no hero number one at bad behavior. Five, four,
Three, two, what? Not zero. Don't go counting on a savior. I was playing it
Safe when I'd fall on my face. Entertainment was what I was after, harmless
Fun, no damage done. I was out and about for the laughter. Thought I was some-
Thing really something no one was gonna touch. Ace in the place, kingpin of
Sin I didn't know too much. Don't believe everything you've heard, don't
Believe a solitary word. It's been overblown, the truth should be known, 'til
Now I couldn't see. Put my cards on the table while I'm still able I guess I
Really don't know how to party. Really don't by any shape and form. Whether
Straight up in the sunshine or passed out in a storm, don't know how but now I
Know I don't. Will it help me out, no it probably won't. I don't have a notion
And I don't have a clue, an iota or an inkling where to start or waht to do.
The foggiest, the faintest, the slightest I ain't got. Will it help me out?
Nah, probably not.
