"Honesty Is No Excuse" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
Up till now I used to pass my time
Drinking beer so slowly, sometimes wine
No God, air, water or sunshine
And honesty was my only excuse
I took your love and I used it

Up till now my youthful stage
A useless rage, a torn out page, a worn out gauge
A dirty shade, a big charade, a has been made
And honesty was my only excuse
I took your love and I used it

I never, I never, I never

Up till now my love life
Few sweet kisses, a little missus, a fork and knife
A happy home, a hand to hold, a land to roam
And honesty was my only excuse
I used to take life in my own hands and I abused it

Up till now I used to tap dance
Take a girl by the hand saying
"I need your, I need your romance"
Oh I had me many chances
And honesty was my only excuse
I used to take your love and I'd abused it

Up till now the path of life was fair enough
Enough was fair, all was right
And now I know, I see the light
And honesty was my only excuse
