Illegal Smile Lyrics

When I woke up this morning
Things were looking bad
Seemed like total silence
Was the only friend I had
A bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down
And won
It was 12 o'clock before I realized
I was having no fun
But fortunately
I have the key
To escape reality

And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don't cost very much
But it lasts a long while
Won't you please tell the man
I didn't kill anyone
I'm just trying to have me some fun

Last time I checked my bankroll
Well it was getting thin
Seemed like total bottom
Was the only place that I had been
I chased a rainbow down a one way street
It was a dead end
And all my friend turned out
To be insurance salesmen
But fortunately, I have the key
To escape reality

And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don't cost very much
But it lasts a long while
Won't you please tell the man
I didn't kill anyone
I'm just trying to have me some fun

Sat down in my closet
You know with all my overalls
Trying to get away from all them ears
Inside my walls
I dreamed the police heard everything I thought
But then, I went to court
And the judge's name was Hoffman
But fortunately, I have the key
To escape reality

And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don't cost very much
But it lasts a long while
Won't you please tell the man
I didn't kill anyone
I'm just trying to have me some fun

When I woke up this morning
Things were looking bad
Seemed like total silence
