heavy fuel lyrics – dire straits

last time i was sober, man i felt bad
worst hangover that i ever had
it took six hamburgers and scotch all night
nicotine for breakfast just to put me right
‘cos if you wanna run cool
if you wanna run cool
if you wanna run cool, you got to run
on heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel

yeah

my life makes perfect sense
l*st and food and violence
s*x and money are my major kicks
get me in a fight i like the dirty tricks
‘cos if you wanna run cool
if you wanna run cool
yes if you wanna run cool, you got to run
on heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel

my chick loves a man who’s strong
the things she’ll do to turn me on
i love the babes, don’t get me wrong
hey, that’s why i wrote this song

yeah

i don’t care if my liver is hanging by a thread
don’t care if my doctor says i ought to be dead
when my ugly big car won’t a-climb this hill
i’ll write a suicide note on a hundred dollar bill
‘cos if you wanna run cool
if you wanna run cool
yes if you wanna run cool, you got to run
on heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel

heavy, heavy fuel
heavy, heavy fuel

heavy, heavy fue-uel
heavy, heavy fue-uel

heavy, heavy fue-uel
heavy, heavy fue-uel

heavy, heavy fue-uel
