Lyrics

I remember trouble sleeping even when I was a kid
mama tucked me in at night no matter what I did
then a shadow on the wall from something spooky in my heart
sent me crawling into bed with her frightened of the dark

CHORUS 1
it's a guilty bed any way you make it
it's a guilty bed anywhere you lie
it's a guilty bed any way you make it
every time you shake it it's the same old ride

you can pump it up with water / you can fluff it up with down
you can rig it with a motor that'll make it spin around
you can polish the brass / oil the pine
we can do it at your place or do it at mine

REPEAT CHORUS 1 + CHORUS 2
it's a guilty bed any way you make it
it's a guilty bed from the pillow to the frame
it's a guilty bed any way you make it
every time you break it it's a goddam shame

you can smother it with comforters or strip it of its sheets
you can make it out of newspapers blowing in the streets
you can crash on the floor at a sympathetic friend's
or book a motel for your dirty weekends

you can share it with a stranger or split it with a spouse
you can hide under the covers 'cause there's someone in the house
you can zonk out in a mansion or hole up in a cave
but there's no rest for the wicked from the cradle to the grave

REPEAT CHORUS 1 & 2
