Better Be Off

Full of ideas - and zest for action
according to you - it was a reaction
'cause your husband - oppressed you always
knocked you and your children into a daze
For just a short time - you was so happy,
now you're frustrated - and mostly snappy
you changed your appearance - changed your lifestyle
nothing is good - and never a smile

I'd better be off, – I'd better give up
take a long shower for an ideal scrub
taking a short cut – use the back door
that's all I can get and all I've paid for.

Together with friends - you go (out) nordic walking
less than for sport - but more for just talking
watching TV - your kids are annoying
Even the meals - you are not deploying
Have you ever - met your soul,
will you ever work - or just live on the dole
What are your plans - what are your visions,
can't see you honestly - find our your missions

I'd better be off, I'd better give up
take a long shower for an ideal scrub
taking a short cut – use the back door
that's all I can get and all I've paid for.

Talking for hours on a lent cell phone
paying the bills is completely unknown
surfing on web-sites, making a blind date
always in secret – not caring about fate
No day longer I can stay here,
neither can't stand this atmosphere
and in the hell you will continue
but there will be no one to pay for you

I'd better be off, I'd better give up
take a long shower for an ideal scrub
taking a short cut – use the back door
that's all I can get and all I've paid for
that's all I can get and all I've paid for.
