Mike Doughty – Ways And Means lyrics

The best I ever did with my life
Said just three honest words to you
Three droplets in a pail of lies
Three gems among the alibis

Yes, I know the ways and means I are, Ma,
Yes I know the ways and means I are.

The best I ever did with my love
Said your name on the microphone
You heard it the restaurant
Cashed out and brought your tips on home

The best I ever did with my bucks
Put two down on your horse to show
She lost but just kept racing 'round
Kept running 'til the sun went down
