Kids were screaming
Wife was bitching
Just took the keys out of my ignition
Why do I always feel like a jerk
After a hard day’s work

Might have a couple regrets
Right now I’ll take what I can get
I want a television set to free my mind
Television set, to drown ‘em out
Television set, might as well have been blind
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out

Smoke and mirrors
Snakes and ladders
You climb a few, you slide back down
My head is on the pillow
My heart is in the basement
My mind is in the gutter

Girls roll around in the sand
And I got the telephone in my hand
Let’s not forget

Television set to free my mind
Television set, to drown ‘em out
Television set, might as well have been blind
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There’s nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There ain’t nothing better for the down and the out
There’s nothing better for the down and the out
