lyrics

Been trying and failing to read Shakespeare
A little failure here, a little tragedy there
And karma’s not a nice one
But it’s been waiting for its opportunity
Been trying and failing to keep off the beer
A little drink here, a little fall there
No, karma’s not a nice one
But it’s been hiding and camping out for weeks

CHORUS
Truth is the roof is caving in
Under this strain I’m living in
Fact is someday I’m going to stretch
My leg right out and kick the bucket

Been trying and failing to stay away
From little dangers here and little accidents there
‘Cause karma’s never been my friend
But it’s been hanging ‘round like it knows me
Been trying and failing to keep out of the way
Of little villains here and little menaces there
No, karma’s never been my friend
But it’s been living and keeping me company

Been trying and failing to get a life
Nobody sells them here and
I’m not going over there
