Honesty Is No Excuse (Thin Lizzy)

Up till now I used to pass my time Drinking beer so slowly, sometimes wine No God, air, water or sunshine And honesty was my only excuse I took your love and I used it Up till now my youthful stage A useless rage, a torn out page, a worn out gauge A dirty shade, a big charade, a has been made And honesty was my only excuse I took your love and I used it I never, I never, I never Up till now my love life A few sweet kisses, a little missus, a fork and knife a happy home, a hand to hold, a land to roam And honesty was my only excuse I took my life in my own hands and I abused it Up till now I used to tap dance Take a girl by the hand saying I need your , I need your romance Oh I had so many chances And honesty was my only excuse I took your love and abused it Up till now the path of life was fair enough Enough was fair, all was right And now I know, I see the light And honesty was my only excuse
