I'm going through a pile of dirty clothes
Looking for my cleanest dirty shirt
Just like Johnny on Sunday morning

But not even Johnny Cash
In his San Quentin days
Would just flip off people
Like flipping a page
Flipping off people like flipping a page

And either I'm a genius
Or I hadn't learned a damn thing
I can't figure how I remember
How they look
The way I'm going through people like a dirty book
I'm going through people like a dirty book

Lack of concern
In fact I don't care
What happens to people
When I'm not there
It's not that I have got a price
It's just that sometimes it's so damn low

Who'd I'd take after
To act this way?
Who told me I'd get away with it?
You gotta give more than witty conversation
To keep your welcome in this world

Either I'm a genius
Or I hadn't learned a damn thing
I can't figure how I remember
How they look
The way I'm going through people like a dirty book
I'm going through people like a dirty book

Searchin' through a pile of dirty clothes
Lookin' form my cleanest dirty shirt
Just like Johnny on Sunday morning
But not even Johnny Stank
In his Fort Sanders Days
Would just flip off people
Like flipping a page
Flipping off people like flipping a page

And either I'm a genius
Or I haven't learned a damn thing
I can't figure how I remember
How they look
The way I'm going through people like a dirty book
I'm going through people like a dirty book
