I'm a man,a man of simple pleasures

I got all I need,so give me whisky measures

With dyslexic eyes I'm seeing very clearly

By the way,I'm on my way

But all of my life,I've been treated like a fool

But I'm no one's fool

Here I go once again trying hard to pretend

There's a future in your man made rules

I'll be governed by the road,get to shed this heavy load

I see no future,so leave me alone in the past
