I do alright

I walk against the lights when they turn red
I like to go against the grain instead
I go to karaoke bars but I don't sing along
I do alright, when I'm doing wrong

I like to walk in someone else's sleep
I leave my message well before the beep
I clean my teeth with a fine-tooth comb and spray-paint my lawn
I do alright, when I'm doing wrong

I drink and file lawsuits at the bar
I ride my bike in the backseat of my car
I order decaf latte soy and make it extra strong
I do alright, when I'm doing wrong

I drag my bathtub up and down the street
I once had wooden legs and real feet
I play in sergeant pepper's band, but I don't know the songs
I do alright, when I'm doing wrong

you might say it's a topsy-turvy life
you might say you're glad you're not my wife
but my love for you is true babe, my love for you is strong
and I do alright, when I'm doing wrong
I do alright, when I'm doing wrong
