"Alright Guy" as written by and Todd Snider....
You know, just the other morning, I was hanging around in my house.
I had that new book with pictures of Madonna naked, I was checking it out.
Just then a friend of mine came through the door
Said she'd never picked me for a scumbag before
Said she didn't ever want to see me anymore
And I still don't know why.

I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I just wanna live until I gotta die.
I know I ain't perfect, but God knows, I try.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm alright.

Now maybe I'm dirty, and maybe I smoke a little dope.
It ain't like I'm going on TV and tearing pictures of the pope.
I know I get wild and I know I get drunk.
But it ain't like I gotta bunch of bodies in my trunk.
My old man used to call me a no-good punk
And I still don't know why.

I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I just wanna live until I gotta die.
I know I ain't perfect, but God knows, I try.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm alright.
I think I'm alright; hell yeah!

You know, just the other night, these cops pulled me over outside a bar.
They turned on their lights, and ordered me outta my car.
And I was only kidding when I called 'em a coupla dicks,
But still they made me do the Stupid Human Tricks,
And now I'm stuck in this jail with a bunch of dumb hicks
And I still don't know why.

I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I just wanna live until I gotta die.
I know I ain't perfect, but God knows, I try.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm alright.
I think I'm an alright guy.
I think I'm alright
You know, I think I'm an alright guy...I really do; I'm alright!
