See the man in the hair shirt
The one that fits so smart
His face is crusty, caked with dirt
He fathered me to suffer in the dark
He's living one for the people
He's having one more for the people
I seen beer dribble down his chin
His drink too foamy...
His vein bulbous nose bleeds his soul thin
His heart's been missed by love's knife
He's living one for the people
He's having one more for the people
He's living one for the people
He's having one more for the people
Punished and battered by mutant ways of living
Seen from the shore, we wished him drowned
Went from bottle to bottle
He kept swimming
He's going nowhere. nothing can pull him down
He's living one for the people
He's having one more for the people
He's living one for the people
He's having one more for the people
