Late for work when just my luck
I ran over something so I stopped my truck
Thought I hit a dog or it could've been a cat
Thank god all I hit was a canvas bag
As I picked it up I swear the devil winked
I saw a bag full of dreams when I read "Property of Brinks"

A mansion on the lake sure would be sweet
My little fixer-upper's gonna bankrupt me
Who wouldn't want a hundred-foot yacht
My old bass boat breaks down a lot
Heaven help me this is tempting as hell
But no matter how I live I gotta live with myself

Headlines read, "Man gives back loot"
Lord how my life changed by the six o'clock news
My best friend called to call me a fool
Said we could've been on a beach in Cancun
People at work made up jokes about me
That's their right but I still think I did the right thing

Go ahead and call me crazy
That's the way my momma raised me

My little fixer-upper's lookin' good to me
In twenty more years I'll be mortgage free
My old bass boat breaks down a lot
But it still gets me to my favorite spot
Heaven help me it was tempting as hell
But no matter how I live I gotta live with myself
