Sex, Alcohol and Sugar

I seem to spend my life
In giving up of things
Things I like, look forward to

I’m told such things are bad for me
That I should wave goodbye
To smoking, sugar, alcohol
Give up, lie back, and sigh

Funny? but there’s just one thing
I don’t give up (one thing)
That’s sex, it just gives up on me
