Just One Moment


Hypocrisy as it oughta be,

That's called good business

Sometimes it really bothers me

How I got in this

Took this job a-thinkin'

I'd be movin' up some day

Been too busy drinkin'

To be carin' either way

The wife she ain't been workin'

'Cause her time is growing near

But the IRS ain't takin'

No sabbaticals this year

Working on commission

Against weekly guarantees

This soldier's on a mission

But it ain't for charity


Give me just one moment with

The wheel between my hands

Just one moment, I'll make you understand

Don't confuse all the games you lose

With failing as a man

Just one moment,

I'll show you who I am

Went in to see the boss man

To ask him for a raise

Never did quite understand

All the reasons that he gave

His 8" X 10" of Jesus

Had turned it's back to me

I guess mortal man can't comprehend

That dense morality

So I bought my wife some roses

And I tied them with a bow

Called the boss up at 3 AM

And I told him where to go

Now we're driving down the highway

Back to where we first began

With me back in the driver's seat

And her holding my hand
