Meet me in the morning,
I'll be happy as a clown,
You'll just be getting up,
and I'll still be getting down;
The band is getting tired,
but they don't give a damn,
So blow the girls a kiss,
and give the boys a hand.

You can take the sunshine,
I can take the moonshine;
You can take the high road,
I could take the low;
The later in the evening,
the one thing I believe in:
I'm on the road to ruin,
it's the only way to go.

A penny in my pocket,
a bucket in the well,
Then Saturday was Sunday,
and I could hear the bells;
Deliver me from evil,
forgiveness and for love,
You're heading for confession,
and I'm heading to the pub.

You can take the sunshine,
I can take the moonshine;
You can take the high road,
I could take the low;
The later in the evening,
the one thing I believe in:
I'm on the road to ruin,
it's the only way to go.

Nancy in the corner,
now I'm moving in,
I thought I'd take me chances,
but I took one on the chin;
I finally got her number,
she wrote it on a cup,
But I phoned her in the morning,
and I woke her mother up.

She wished that I would go to bed,
I only wished her well,
And then she told me Jesus said,
that I'd go straight to hell;
She's following His footsteps,
I'm following my nose,
We're heading for the same place,
I'll see you down the road.

You can take the sunshine,
I can take the moonshine;
You can take the high road,
I could take the low;
The later in the evening,
the one thing I believe in:
I'm on the road to ruin,
it's the only way to go.

You can take the sunshine,
I can take the moonshine;
You can take the high road,
I could take the low;
The later in the evening,
the one thing I believe in:
I'm on the road to ruin,
it's the only way to go.
We're on the road to ruin,
it's the only way to go.
