"Quit While You're Behind" lyrics - DR. FEELGOOD

"Quit While You're Behind"

You had a reputation
Talk can be so unkind
You loved above your station
It messed up your mind
Take this information
And quit while you're behind

Kicked out of his bed
Now you might go blind
His line is dead
And your face is lined
You'll only get ahead
If you quit while you're behind

You got to get out while you can and run
You got to pay the price, once you've had your fun
Once you've had your fun yeah

[Harmonica break]

You lost your inhibitions
Now they're hard to find
You made the late editions
In the daily grind
Forget your superstitions
And quit while you're behind
