"Sometimes a Great Notion" as written by and John Mellencamp....
Never give an inch - that's what I say, son.
When it's too tough for everybody else,
Hell, it's just right for me.
Now my lips are bleeding
From the selfish things that I've done,
And my heart: it lies at the bottom of the ocean.
Sometimes a great notion...

Wanted to make love to my girl
In the backseat of my car.
So, I took her to the drive-in picture show.
So, I filled her up with
Lies and a strong love potion,
And I'm sittin' here, watching the movie alone.
Sometimes a great notion...

Sometimes the best plans
Have been known to go astray.
So, you better put your seatbelt on.
Just like your worst headache,
Well, a bad day don't go away.
And, you hit the ground running against your emotions.
Sometimes a great notion...
Sometimes a great notion...
