"Sentimental Hygiene" as written by and Warren Zevon....
Every day I get up in the morning and go to work
And do my job whatever
I need some
Sentimental hygiene

Everybody's at war these days
Let's have a mini-surrender
I need some
Sentimental hygiene

Everybody's had to hurt about it
No one wants to go without it
It's so hard to find it
Sentimental hygiene

Every night I come home exhausted
From trying to get along
I need some
Sentimental hygiene

Everybody's joining up to fight
For the right to be wrong
I need some
Sentimental hygiene

Some nights I drive my car
Up and down the boulevard
It's so hard to find it
Sentimental hygiene

Everybody's had to hurt about it
No one wants to go without it
It's so hard to find it
Sentimental hygiene

Some nights I drive my car
Up and down the boulevard
It's so hard to find it
Sentimental hygiene

Sentimental hygiene
I need some
Sentimental hygiene

    General CommentThis song is probably a reference to his getting clean and sober for the recording of this album. He;s probably dying for a beer, "dying for the right to be wrong." it is this desire that leads him to an early death, and he knows this will be the end result, but man does he love it.

    check out Neil Young's guitar work here.
