Country Song, Lyrics, No Music Yet, Satire

All My Reckless Habits

Bacon’s good on everything
and how I love a good steak
I’ll eat a big ol’ catfish
that I caught on the lake

Smokin’ helps me unwind
after a really rough day
Not everyone likes my lifestyle
and that is A-OK

All my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me
All my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me
You live your life
and I’ll live mine
Cause I feel like
I’m on cloud nine
Oh, all my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me

I love my wife’s cookin’
and a well-blended drink
I watch my teams on TV
and I love to sit & think

Life is for truly livin’
the way we all want to
So I choose to enjoy
Lite beer & barbeque

Life is fleeting
Life is precious
and we don’t have much time
So it’s my belief
to not feel grief
about the fact, I can’t climb
Others can do what they want
They can starve themselves
and act like total jerks
Meanwhile, I’ll be smiling
a big ol’ smile
as I eat my
cheeseburger with the works

All my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me
All my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me
You live your life
and I’ll live mine
cause I feel like I’m
on cloud nine
Oh, all my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me.

Oh, all my reckless habits
are gonna be the death of me.

Lyric Notes: Satire, of course. Totally inspired by Jimmy Buffett. The cheeseburger line is a reference to his classic song, “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” Here’s to you and your career, Jimmy! Hope to meet up with you one day! I think it somewhat is inspired by a second songwriter… Paul Thorn. One of my favorite styles of music involves biting satire. Enjoy!
