At War With The World - Lyrics by Ufo


Lyrics

Hit me like a hammer to my head
We thrashed in bed baby
Drove a truck right through my life
Struck me like a knife
There's a finger in my pie, someone else's guy
Caught you with your pants down, fingers in the till
Caught you stealing something, my last thrill

* chorus:

At war with the world as this life unfurls
Ooh, better get ready
At war with the world, as this life unfurls
Better get ready

Living like a hound dog who's not fed
Life's one big bed baby
From the trash right on the street and anyone you meet
Trying to make the first glance and i doubt you will last
Caught you with your pants down fingers in the till
I guess i've swallowed life's hardest pill

* (chorus)

(instrumental)

*(repeat chorus twice)
