Lyrics

I’m a little thick around the middle
I’m a little weak around the heart
And I’m a little flat along my backside
But I look real good in the dark

Now I can’t drink like I used to
Cause it’s a little dark in my head
I’d rather brew some coffee,
Throw on some good tunes,
And talk all night instead

It was a hard, hard life back there where I used to be
And things still aren’t as they seem
That man in the mirror may not like what he’s seen
But that’s all right by me
Yes, that’s alright by me

2.(Lizzy)

If life had give me lots for the choosin’
I’d have a lot more legs than I have tail
I’d have perfect hair and bigger boobies
I’d choose to be a hammer, not a nail

So many younguns here all call me mama
They couldn’t all’ve come out of the womb
I’m guessin only four,
The other six can’t close a door,
They’ll go home when we run out of food


And it’s a hard, hard life anywhere I seem to be
And things still aren’t as they seem
I’m good at bein happy,
With a song and with a dream
And that’s all right by me
Yes, that’s alright by me

3.(Lynnie)
Should I pay the ‘lectric or the cable?
Do I feed the boys or just the girl?
Should I pay the child support
Or just sell off a baby,
I’m so tired of bein poor as dirt

Cause my temper’s gettin’ shorter than my patience
I have to keep an eye on my right arm
I wish that I could win that big lotto
I’d buy everything except the farm

It’s a hard, hard life everywhere I choose to be
Coming apart at the seams
I’m tryin to be happy
With my song and with my dream
And that’s all right by me
Yes that’s alright by me

:outro: (ALL)
It’s a hard, hard life and we’ll have to believe
This world is not what it seems
We can all be happy
With our song and with our dream
And that’s all right by me
Yes, that’s alright by me
