Lyrics:
SELF SABOTAGE ©1995 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

I try my patience, I drive me nuts
I try my patience, I drive me nuts
(Chorus)
Whenever things are going real fine, it's then I make them hard
I'm just getting real damn good at the fine art of self sabotage

Desparately needing sleep - I am the nagging thought
Putting pen to paper - I am the writer's block
Skipping down the street - I'm the gaping sewer hole
Trying to be the perfect guest - I am the flush that overflows


Whenever things ...

Relatives are coming - I am the messy house
Trying so hard to be polite - I'm the foot that's in my mouth
Just enough time to get to work - I am a real flat tire
Standing in the grocery line - I'm the triple coupon that just expired
Did I acquire this learned behavior
While in some trance at school
Am I a double agent whe owes a favor
To some despot whose humor in cruel

Self sabotage Self sabotage ...
I try my patience, I drive me nuts
I try my patience, I drive me nuts
Trying to shed some pounds - I'm a quart of rich egg nog
Needing to pass this test - I am the homework-eating dog
Up here patching the roof - I'm the storm that came too soon
In the middle of playing this song - I am the string that's out af tune

How did this habit get so integrated
It's like someone gave my brain a hard twist
Could it be that I'm a victim who's deeply hated
By a maniacal, vengeful hypnotist

Self sabotage - Yeah, it's me that tries my patience - and
It's me that's driving me nuts - I'm gonna get me for this


Genre: rock, pop, easy listening, kids/family, alternative, ac (adult contemporary)
