Lyrics

The lady is too fat for words
But she sings like her life is on fire
The broken and damaged are too busy dancing
And the lovers are too scared to try

She’s too good to be wed
And he’s unlikely to change
These ones are too low to pick without bending
And these ones are too high to hang

What would you have me do?
What would you have me do?
If all that you say turns out to be true
What would you have me do?

The good guys have waited to long
And the bad ones are too cool to loose
The air is too hot to be bottled
And the water’s too deep to be blue

The finish is too close to call
Skin too thick to feel
The jury’s too white and the sentence too long
To be easily concealed

The lady is too fat for words
But she sings like her life is on fire
The sinners and swindlers are already dancing
To the sound of the gospel choir

This necktie is too tight to wear tonight
But the money is too good to fold
The waiter too uptight to say it out loud,
To say, "truth is too much for the soul!"

What would you have me do?
What would you have me do?
If all that you say turns out to be true
What would you have me do?
