Well, for six weeks now, Ive been clean as I can be
Havent popped any pills, stayed off the ecstasy
Havent snorted any lines, or puffed on any weed
No heroin, no opium, not a single poppy seed

But my test turned out false positive (false positive)
Musta switched my sample with the one I saw George Dubya give
Now my new job is tentative, howm I gonna live, with this false positive

Drank a gallon of dill pickle juice, every single day
Cut my hair real short, and dyed it charcoal grey
Sent away to a place for urine, guaranteed clean
So they can test all they want, but they wont know where Ive been

But the test still turned out positive (still positive)
Musta switched my sample with the one I saw Dwight Gooden give
Now my new career is tentative, howm I gonna live, with this false positive

Every time I turn around they want a cup of pee to test
A lock of hair, some DNA, a lie detector test
I try my best to given them something clean that they can use
But I always seem to end up with these false positive blues

Well Im gonna get married, yeah Im such a lucky guy
So I rounded up all the penicillin I could buy
Had my cousin take the blood test, instead of me
So I could start my new life off with some integrity

But the test turned out false positive (false positive)
Musta switched my sample with the one I saw Bill Clinton give
Now my honeymoon is tentative, howm I gonna live, with this false positive

But my test turned out false positive (false positive)
Musta switched my sample
Now my whole life is tentative, howm I gonna live, with this false positive
