"ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS"

Quiet Life

Something's happenin' but I'm just gonna turn a blind eye.
If I see no evil, ask no questions, and I hear no lies.
Can't communicate with minds that are small,
With some people it's like talkin' to the wall
And a fellow who walks away,
lives to battle another day.
And I've really got no appetite
for a fight,
Not tonight.

All I want is a quiet life.
Anything for a quiet life.
No ambition to rock the boat
When I can just stay afloat.

Be content with a quiet life
All I want is a quiet life.
Anything for a quiet life.
Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil at all.
Confidentially, between these walls,
I'm on top of it all.

I'd rather have ' em think I'm deaf, dumb, and blind
Than aggravation every time I speak my mind
Keep _________ at a quiet life.
Anything for a quiet life.

I could easily blow my top,
Start a row,
But why start now?

Give your daddy a quiet life.
Give your mother a quiet life.
Anything for a quiet life.

[instrumental section]

Give your daddy a quiet life.
Give your mother a quiet life.
Anything for a quiet life.
Confidentially, between these walls,
I'm on top of it all.
