Some have lots of money To sit in the easy chair Some have got a honey To help put em there Some just get up in the morning Get in the car and go but I've always go to do a lot of work to get my hard work to show Some had the help of products i had the help of hands some put it all together but I was always at loose ends but I dug my heels into the ground and put the grindstone to my nose I never gave up hope and now my hard work shows hard work and a lot of hairspray got me where I am today I teased I combed I washed these cares away I toiled I slaved I labored hard and this is what I say hard work and a lot of hairspray got me where I am today

I walked down the beaten path and it led me to you hearts were littered on the ground mine was with them too thought our love was nothing special it was nothing new oh the battered trail that led to ruin led...me straight to you oh the battered trail oh the battered trail
4.
some of the best laid plans find themselves shelved with the rest I regret it I regret it no time like the past
5.
I take a bus in the city and it rides pretty neat I take a bus in the city and it rides pretty neat it's got air conditioning but I can't every find a seat I ain't got no wheels I can call my own I ain't got no wheels I can call my own once in a while a big 18 wheeler comes and takes me home

Barren Land 03:21
I got no house no trees no crops no leaves miles and miles of barren land road to nowhere no supply or demand barren land well I'm no good but I always complain ain't got nobody to give me his name I'm too busy being ornery and mean to go out and see or be seen oh yeah bridge: there is a man he has no plan he plants his seeds on barren land barren land
8.
without an incantation or a voodoo rhyme no hocus pocus, mumbo jumbo didn't have to light a candle this time I'd sell my soul to the devil for a ride in your car how did we get there? we didn't go very far I know it's true I know that you can break the spell
9.
A knife and a fork spell a nuptial course I'm not ready to dine There's to much on my plate we can go for a date I don't think I'm the marrying kind Don't set a place at the table Don't set a place at the table Don't set a place at the table for me We can fool around but I'll never settle down but I'll put my red dress on and paint the town Don't set a place at the table for me.
