Well I used to lie down with the rattle snake
And rise in the morning already awake
But it’s gone
Ahhh

And now I sleep next to a serenade
And wake up in the morning just to draw the shade
It’s alright
Lettin’ in a little light

It was wearing me out
It was doing me in
You know it’s wearing me thin
The thick and the thin

I got a sweet talking girl and a good pair of shoes
And come five-thirty I’ll be making the news
It’s a crime
Just’a feeling fine

I got my head on my shoulders and my feet on the ground
Watching as the walls stop spinning around
I don’t mind
Slowing down

It was wearing me out
It was wearing me thin
It was doing me in
The thick and the thin
Ahhh ahhh
You know it’s wearing out
Know it’s wearing me out
Ahhhh

Somewhere someone died

Well I never knew why I was so afraid
Till I pulled the pin back on the hand grenade
And I sighed
Ahhh

There’s a mouse in the kitchen that I don’t want to kill
And a little roach sleeping on the windowsill
In the sun
And we’re all one

It was wearing me out
It was wearing me thin
It was doing me in
The thick and the thin

It was wearing me out
It was wearing me thin
It was doing me in
The thick and the thin

Ahh ahhhh
The thick and the thin
Ahh ahhhh
The thick and the thin
Ahh ahhhh
The thick and the thin
Ahh ahhhh
