    "The Most Unoriginal Sin" Lyrics

    John Hiatt

    What there was left of us
    Was all covered in dust and thick skin
    A half eaten apple
    The whole Sistine chapel
    Painted on the head of a pin

    A life long love's work
    Gone up in a smirk
    And you didn't even see her waltz in

    Now this love is a ghost, for having played host
    To the most unoriginal sin

    At the wedding we smiled
    While some devil played wild violin
    Soon after the chapel
    She offered me that apple
    One bite and I was gone with the wind

    And you needed no proof
    Cause the whole naked truth
    Was wearing only an infidels grin

    And a proud school boys boast
    For havin' left his post
    For the most unoriginal sin

    Now the juke box is hummin'
    Al the venial short comings of men
    But I found me this drink

    That can finally sink
    All this guilt I been wallowing in

    Buddy once you get started
    Once true love's departed
    You do it over and over again

    So tonight I will toast
    Just who ever comes close
    To the most unoriginal sin

    So tonight I will toast
    Just who ever comes close
    To the most unoriginal sin
