You got to open your eyes in the morning Nine o'clock comin' without any warnin' And you gotta get ready to go You say you went out late last evenin' Did a lot of drinkin' Come home stinkin' And you went and fell asleep on the floor And then your lady comes and finds you asleepin' Starts in to weepin' 'bout the hours you been keepin' And you better get your ass out the door
Ain't no crime Say everybody gets that way some time Ain't no crime You know it's good to get it on to get a load off your mind Oh no, it ain't no crime. Oh.
You got to open your eyes in the morning Nine o'clock comin' with out any warnin' And you gotta get ready to go Well now you tell me you love somebody And you'll love 'em forever You may love 'em forever But you won't like 'em all of the time Well now you tell me you need somebody for the rest of your life You might have somebody But you won't want 'em everyday
Ain't no crime Say ev'rybody gets that way some time Ain't no crime Well it's just human nature Happens all the time Oh no, it ain't no crime. Oh
And just as surely as the wind keeps blowin' The grass keeps growin' You gotta keep goin' And the Lord have mercy on your soul La, la la la.
