Nelson, Willie - Bad Breath Lyrics

Don't ever complain about nothin'
Before we can walk we all gotta crawl
Halitosis is a word I never could spell
But bad breath is better than no breath at all

It's okay to say "Hello" to me
But don't get too near if you don't wanna fall
And don't think you'll love me if my breath melts the wall
'Cause bad breath is better than no breath at all

I've been a-puffin' on this and a-suckin' on that
I got feelin' a thousand feet tall
The closer we get, you'll have to agree
That bad breath is better than no breath at all

I been talkin' to the man in the mirror
And he smells his diet is rot-gut alcohol
But it's better I guess that starvin' to death
And bad breath is better than no breath at all

I've been a-puffin' on this and a-suckin' on that
I'm feelin' a thousand feet tall
The closer we get, you'll have to agree
That bad breath is better than no breath at all
Yeah, bad breath is better than no breath at all

  34. Luis Gustavo Ferreira

    About the main theme of his newer album, I think Willie is starting to understand he's getting in the end of the line, and it is kinda sad to hear the most songs of this album talks about death. But is also a celebration of his life. Willie, we love you. Always will

    Willie said we keep coming back til we get it right, for those of us who will be coming back for a longtime, listen and remember, if you ain’t done it, seen it, felt it, or lost it, you’re just singing a song. Willie sings his life, he is the master.
