   Repeat Intro:

   Last Verse played like first one

   I go to parties, sometimes until four,
   it's hard to leave, when you can't find the door.
   It's tough to handle this fortune and fame,
   everybody's so different, I haven't changed.

   Last Chorus

   They say I'm lazy, but it takes all my time. (Everybody say oh yeah - oh yeah)
   I keep on going, guess I'll never know why. 
   Life' been good to me so far, yeah, yeah, yeah
