Quote Me Happy

LyricsWell, Iâ€™ve heard the good lord loves us â€“ Iâ€™ve heard the good lord caresThe good lord takes us by the hand as we walk up those stairs The preacher says the Bible is all we really need He hangs his around his neck - right next to his greed Oh â€“ oh you can quote me happy So long as I donâ€™t have to join the happy clappy You can feed me chapter and verse Itâ€™ll satisfy my hunger but it wonâ€™t quench my thirst I met a girl called Rosie - who worked down by the sea Said sheâ€™d had enough of sailor boys who come and go with the breeze She said: Oh â€“ oh you could make me happy You look educated â€“ make it snappy Get out your chapter and show me your verse You could satisfy my hunger but you wonâ€™t quench my thirst What did she mean when she said she loved me? She wouldnâ€™t kiss under the neon light All over by a quarter-to-three She took my wallet and my identity (Now I guess sheâ€™s me) I fought my way into the bottle - a shot-glass in my hand Bartender said itâ€™d be the death of me - I always knew heâ€™d understand He said: You can quote me happy â€“ you can quote me sad You can quote me anything you like So long as youâ€™re a thirsty man I hope the good lord loves me - I hope the good lord cares I hope the good lord stretches out his hand â€˜cause Iâ€™m slipping down the stairs Slipping down the stairs Slipping down the devilâ€™s stairs
