Lyrics

I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour

But Heaven knows I'm miserable now I was looking for a job, and then I found a job And Heaven knows I'm miserable now

In my life Why do I give valuable time To people who don't care if I live or I die?

Two lovers entwined pass me by And Heaven knows I'm miserable now I was looking for a job, and then I found a job And Heaven knows I'm miserable now

In my life Why do I give valuable time To people who don't care if I live or I die?

What she asked of me at the end of the day Caligula would have blushed! "You've been in the house too long" she said And I naturally fled

In my life Why do I smile At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?

I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour But Heaven knows I'm miserable now "Oh, you've been in the house too long" she said And I naturally fled

In my life Oh, why do I give valuable time To people who don't care if I live or I die?
