Well I’m in such a terrible state
And my country’s just like me
Well I can’t afford to live in this place
And I can’t afford to leave
But my friends all say ‘well, 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

Oh I’ve been travelin’ around the world
And there’s nowhere I ain’t been
And everywhere goes by so fast
And I don’t know what I’ve seen
And they push me ‘round 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

Oh give me a bottle of wine
I don’t wanna drink
Get me out of my mind
I don’t wanna think

When I close my weary eyes
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
With the sixpence in the pie
Oh, and 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
No, if I don’t make it before I die
Then I just ain’t gonna die
