Well I'm in such a terrible state
My country is just like me
And I can't afford to live in this place
And I can't afford to leave

My friends all say that it's a shame
And they just can't understand why
Oh but if I don't make it before I die
Then I just ain't gonna die

I've been traveling around the world
And nowhere I ain't been
And everywhere goes by so fast
And I don't know what I've seen

And they push me around on a wild goose chase
By land or sea or sky
Oh but if I don't make it before I die
Then I just ain't gonna die
No if I don't make it before I die
Then I just ain't gonna die

Give me a bottle of wine
I don't want a drink
Get me out of my mind
I don't want to think

When I close my weary eyes
And I think that it's the end
But it's only then that I realize
That I'm my own best friend

There's another day and another chance
At the sixpence in the pie
Oh I don't find it before I die
Then I just ain't gonna die

No if I don't find it before I die
Then I just ain't gonna die
No if I don't find it before I die
Then I just ain't gonna die
