Made it through the war we fought, the one back in Vietnam
Couldn't afford to hide out in a school
Fixin cars to make it through, couldn't fix the holes in my shoes
But the kids were happy with the little that they had

80 hours a week was not enough, to give my wife everything she wants
Always threat-nin me to hit the road,
Stay at home beats on the kids, takes her ignorance out on them
They tell me at night lord, all that she's done.

Every day with the rising sun, say I love you but she breaks my heart.
Better off join back, to punch the clock
One day soon I'll stay in bed,
that'll be the morning when she wakes up dead.
Or the day her tracks head on out of town


So I guess I'll have to work a little more,
Guess Ill have to die out in the sun
Welcome back to the High Life everyone
Welcome back to the highlife my son
