From the recording Three Tequila Floor
I like my job, and I like my wife
I like my kids, and I like my life
I like you, too, but an innocent embrace
Today might well get me thrown out of this place
I’d hug you but ― I don’t want to go to jail
I’d hug you but ― who do I know would go my bail?
Used to be, I could be a regular male
But I hug you today, you might kick my tail
They say we’re all pigs, but I don’t agree
Most of us’re pretty decent, the way I see
As we try to make it through this very dark time
We just need to understand the brand new bottom line
No one should have to say “me, too”
Time for us to know what not to do
R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that’s what all this means to me
So I’d hug you but ― I guess I’d better leave you be
