I'm No Good


I told you I’m no good
I tried the best I could
But I guess no one understood
You know I had good intentions
Some were my own inventions
I inserted in our daily conversations
You know I tried and tried
But after every truth I lied
You see I had my ego to misguide
I know I have a troubled mind
But it’s not my goal to be unkind
Too many knots in my heart to unwind
You know I died a thousand times
Would pay dollars for dimes
To take back all the lies about my crimes
So with great trepidation
Hoping it’s not a great miscalculation
I will pay my penance at your discretion

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
