lyrics

I’m tired of toein’ that line
I’m tired of toein’ that line
I wake up every morning ‘fore the sun does shine
And I’m tired of toein’ that line.

When I do things the way you say I should
When I do things the way you say I should
Well at the end of the day, it don’t do me any good
When I do things the way you say I should

‘Cause I ain’t got a nickel to my name
No I ain’t got a nickel to my name
You’re living on the hill with your riches and your fame
But I ain’t got a nickel to my name

I’m tired of toein’ that line
I’m tired of toein’ that line
I wake up every morning ‘fore the sun does shine
And I’m tired of toein’ that line.

Well a good girl, she’ll never rock the boat
No a good girl, she’ll never rock the boat
She’s gonna keep her head down just to keep herself afloat
No a good girl, she’ll never rock the boat

But a good girl, I’m never gonna be
No a good girl, I’m never gonna be
I’m gonna speak my truth, gonna tell you what I see
No, a good girl I’m never gonna be

I’m tired of toein’ that line
I’m tired of toein’ that line
I wake up every morning ‘fore the sun does shine
And I’m tired of toein’ that line.

Mister, when you gonna look me in the eye
Mister, when you gonna look me in the eye
You take me for a fool but I can see through all your lies
Mister, when you gonna look me in the eye

Well, you ain’t gonna trouble me no more
No, you ain’t gonna trouble me no more
I’m gonna turn this mess around, gonna even up the score
Mister, you ain’t gonna trouble me no more

‘Cause I ain’t gonna toe your wicked line
No, I ain’t gonna toe your wicked line
I’m gonna wake up every morning, feel that sweet sunshine
And I ain’t gonna toe your wicked line
No, I ain’t gonna toe your wicked line
I ain’t gonna toe your wicked line
No I ain’t gonna toe your wicked line
