My spirit's winging, my soul is free
I'm doing my drinking in good company
The music's screaming, my feet are flying
And everybody's laughing and nobody's crying

A sneak suspicion (it) drags me down
A nagging feeling going round

Hearts for sale, (they're) going cheap
Hearts for sale, lover's leap (blood runs deep)

My belly's full, my glass is brimming
The women look so beautiful and I feel like singing
The voice of conscience, the voice of reason
Yacking in my plans, boy, I call that treason

I'm losing my willpower, my blood's running cold
My body's on pause and my mind's stuck on hold

What am I going to do about it?

I don't need no doctor, I need a deputation
I tell you if you don't want my loving, you can just take my resignation

I'm under the hammer
I'm a full time worker, baby
I'm a real body slammer

Back to Steel Wheels.
