Dunno How To Live That Clean

© Copyright Greg Champion

I got friends who go to bed before midnight
Never even smoked one cigarette
somehow managed to stay outa trouble and
still haven’t messed their lives up yet
I wouldn’t mind tryin’ that kinda routine, but
I don’t know how to live that clean

2.
I got a large face on the TV tellin’ me
this is the way and the way is this
he’s tellin’ me if I give it a try now
I might find true happiness
I hear what they’re sayin’, I know what they mean, but
I don’t know how to live that clean

BR.
Everybody’s prey to some kinda weakness
And the most insidious, is the weakness of the flesh

3.
get well get rich don’t die keep fit
stay away from anything bad
that’s the advice that no-one ever gave me
wouldn’ta changed much if they had
it’s a nice idea but it might be a dream, ‘cos
I don’t know how to live that clean

4.
I’m tryin’ not to overdo things
I’m responsible with my alcohol
when you ask about my bad habits I’ve
nearly got ’em under control
and that’ll have to be near enough for me, ‘cos
I don’t know how to live that clean

I suppose if it’s meant to be
I’ll tidy up eventually
But it’s a whole completely different scene
And I don’t know how to live that clean
