(Dickey Lee - Freddy Weller - Mike Campbell)
Some men look for diamonds, some men look for gold
I'm just trying to find myself before I get too old
Different people have their ways of measuring success
Maybe it's not the right way but wrong's what I do best.
Well, I walk the straight and narrow, straight to where I don't belong
One time I even tried to love one woman but that didn't last too long
If my ship was docking in the east you can bet I'd be headin' west
Right in the wrong direction 'cause wrong's what I do best.
When I'm down and out and can't get up I feel right at home
When I got the blues and it's all bad news that's when I'm in my comfort zone
But, If they held a loser's playoff, well, there'd be no contest
'Cause I've had lots of practice and wrong's what I do best.
--- Instrumental ---
If my ship was docking in the east you can bet I'd be heading west
I'm right in the wrong direction 'cause wrong's what I do best.
Right in the wrong direction 'cause wrong's what I do best...
