I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to stand for right
And always shun the wrong
If I'm in the crowd
Or if I'm alone
On the street or in my home
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
Every day, everywhere
On that busy thoroughfare
Folk may watch me, some may spot me
Say I'm foolish, but I don't care
I can't sing one thing
And then live another
Be a saint by day
And a devil undercover
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to stand for right
And always shun the wrong
If I'm in the crowd
Or if I'm alone
On the street or in my home
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song, yes!
Every day, every night
I must always walk in the light
Some mistake me, underrate me
Because I want to do what's right
I can't go to church
And shout all day Sunday
Go out and get drunk
And raise's all day monday (?)
I've got to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
