High wide and handsome - that's how I like livin'.
High wide and handsome - that's how life should be.
Low skinny and ugly - that's for other people.
High wide and handsome suits me to a tee.
Song, wine, and women - they're my three favorites.
Beer, gin, and whiskey - that's five, six, and four.
Saturday night I like eatin' and dancin'
And I sleep all day Sunday so's I'm ready for more.
High wide and handsome - you can't take it with you.
High wide and handsome - that's one way to go.
Let's live it up - might as well, we're all dying.
High wide and handsome - let's put on a show.
Can't quit what will kill me, so why even bother'
I love this hard livin', so why even try'
I'll be high wide and handsome when I kick the bucket.

I'll be high wide and handsome on the day that I die.
High wide and handsome - you can call it my motto.
High wide and handsome - call it my creed.
Money's just paper, liquor's thicker than water
High wide and handsome in thought, word, and deed.
Have high wide and handsome carved on my head stone,
With the date I was born plus the date that I died,
Then take one from the other - all that's left is a number.
Just remember I laughed twice as hard as I cried.
High wide and handsome - that's how I like livin'.
High wide and handsome - that's how life should be.
Low skinny and ugly - that's for other people -
High wide and handsome suits me to a tee.
