Gonna Get Right (And Do Something Wrong)

This song is by Johnny Paycheck and appears on the album Lovers & Losers (1982).

Well it's five to five and I'm takin' it home
It's Friday night and the week's been long
In a little while I'll be dewalkin' again
Well I swore last week I was gonna stop
After gettin' beat half to death by that cop
But here I lay drinkin' doubles again

I'm gonna get right and do somethin' wrong
I don't never know where I'm goin' till I'm too far gone
Well it seems like I'd change my way of thinkin'
But it just don't work when I start to drinkin'
I always get right and do somethin' wrong

Well I thought I'd found the love of my life
It turned out to be some gorilla's wife
Now I've got three fractured ribs and a broken arm
He left eleventeen footprints in my chest
Spread my nose runnin' east to west
This time honey I nearly bought the farm

I'm gonna get right and do somethin' wrong

Well their givin' last call guess I made it this time
If I make it to the car I'll be doin' just fine
Hey wait a minute baby what's your name
Would you like to spend a little time with me
I got the car backed out oh no who's he
Here I go ol' John's done it again

I'm gonna get right and do somethin' wrong
I'm gonna get right and do somethin' wrong
