my lyricsbox
My my my It's a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free (or a woman if you are one)
I like swimming in the sea

My my my It's a beautiful world
I like drinking Irish tea
Oh with a little bit of lapsang souchong
I like making my own tea

My my my It's a beautiful world
I like driving in my car
Roll the top down, sometimes I travel quite far
Drive to the ocean and stare up at the stars
I like driving in my car

All around is anger, automatic guns
It's death in large numbers no respect for women or our little ones
I tried talking to Jesus, but he just put me on hold
Said he'd been swamped by calls this week and he
could not shake his cold

And still this emptiness persists
Perhaps this is as good as it gets
When you've given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes
Now I leave the party early at least with no regrets
I watch the sun as it comes up, I watch it as it sets
This is as good as it gets

Oh My my my It's a beautiful world
I like sleeping with Marie
She is one sexy girl full of mystery
She says she doesn't love me
But she likes my company
For now, that's good enough for me

My my my It's a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free (or a woman if you are one)
I like swimming in the sea
This song is from the album "Going Somewhere" and "Company of Strangers".
