Gold teeth and a curse for this town

Were all in my mouth

Only I don't know how they got out, dear
Am Am C C F F
Turn me back into the pet

I was happier then with no mind set

Chorus:
G G C C
And if you'd a took to me like
F F C C G G
A A gull takes to the wind

And the rest of our lives would'a fared well

New slang when you notice the stripes
C C G G
The dirt in your fries

Hope it's right when you die

But my heads to the wall
Am Am G G
And I'm lonely

Chorus

And the rest of our lives would'a fared well
