The Guess Who – Lie Down lyrics

(B. Cummings)

Have a disease-free summer in Asia
Have a good old roughy tumble in Japan
Have a disease-free winter in Dauphin
And lie down
Lie down

Why is it not good enough for you
It is genuine

Born in years of later forties
Never pampered, or advised it was wise
To be chasin' after something bright and tawny
If you totaled up the score and found
That my side of the board was winning
Then my ex-friend you might be a loser
I'm too damn surly to be forgiven
Too damned unstable to be left all alone
Too damn lucky to be livin' the life I am
And livin' the life I'm lookin'at

Why is it not good enough for you
It is genuine
