You’ve been telling me so long
Everything inside is wrong and dirty
I listened hard and learned it well
That all my evil thoughts would lead to hell
And every feeling that I’ve had
Is just more proof that I am bad and dirty
But I am growing past my shame
And I am gonna turn this game around

And I wanna live dirty…Dig down in the mud
And I wanna live dirty…Dig down in the mud
And I wanna live dirty…Dig down in the mud
And I wanna live dirty…Ain’t I flesh and blood

You scrubbed my face and tanned my hide
But everything inside remained so dirty
It’s in the dirt the good things grow
And now I’m gonna let my good thing show
My halo now has disappeared
And I’ve become the things you’ve feared, I’m dirty
I grow my hair down to my knees
I’m rollin’ in it–Anything I please

And I wanna live dirty…Dig down in the mud
And I wanna live dirty…Dig down in the mud
And I wanna live dirty…Dig down in the mud
And I wanna live dirty…Ain’t I flesh and blood
