I QUIT

​Music was my hobby, something that I did for fun. Now that it’s become a job, the damage has been done. No amount of money can repair my broken lungs

And who cares what yer makin’ if yer makin’ it alone
Sick all the time, I miss my wife – I quit

Got better things to do with my life – I quit

I quit – I quit
Go ahead and say it, tell me I’m getting old. Tell me I’m a sellout, but it’s you that’s being sold. See, I refuse to think of rock and roll as my career. Tell me all my opportunities, ask me if I care
The rock star lifestyle ain’t for me – I quit
Got somewhere else I’d rather be, so I quit

I quit – I quit
Go ahead and say it, call me a fuckin’ wimp. Just cuz I’ve got a different kind of life that I wanna live. You can criticize my ideals and my priorities

But ultimately I don’t give a flying fuck what you think of me
I don’t believe in that macho shit – I quit

I know there’s no way you can understand it – I quit

Sick all the time, I miss my wife – I quit

Got better things to do with my life – I quit

I quit – I quit
What’d ya think, I wanted to be Mick Jagger or something, playing the pixie at 50 or 60?

Gimme a break!

I mean, I don’t wanna grow up and all that, but the time has come for me to say…
I quit
