I’ve heard all the stories, the failures and glories, I haven’t had either
Boast and toast I’m the best and I’m a mess, I know I’m not neither
Thought I was down as far as any man could go
Thought my highs were giant size I know now that’s not so
I know you heard, know you heard, know you heard
Don’t believe a word, not a word, one word

It’s been overblown, the truth should be known
Till now I couldn’t see
Put my cards on the table while I’m still able
I guess I really don’t know how to party

It’s blown out of whack
The truth is what’s lacking, ’till now I couldn’t see
The long and the short I’d like to report
I guess I really don’t know how to party

Really don’t by any shape or form
Whether straight up in the sunshine or passed out in the storm
Don’t know how but now I know I don’t
Will it help me out? No, it probably won’t

Ten nine ain’t no hero
Number one at bad behavior
Five, four, three, two, what? Not zero
Don’t go counting on a savior

I was playing it safe when I’d fall on my face
Entertainment was what I was after
Harmless fun, no damage done
I was out and about for the laughter
Thought I was something
Really something no one was gonna touch
Ace in the place, kingpin of sin
I didn’t know too much
Don’t believe (don’t believe everything you’ve heard) no word
Don’t believe a word (don’t believe a solitary word) no word

It’s been overblown, the truth should be known,
Till now I couldn’t see
Put my cards on the table while I’m still able
I guess I really don’t know how to party

Really don’t by any shape and form
Whether straight up in the sunshine or passed out in a storm
Don’t know how but now I know I don’t
Will it help me out, no, it probably won’t

I don’t have a notion, I don’t have a clue
An iota or an inkling where to start or what to do
The foggiest, the faintest, the slightest I ain’t got
Will it help me out? Nah, probably not
