I'm only skin and bones.
Pierce my heart to atone.
Seems such a reasonable sin,
mortal man under bones and skin.

Dear lover, don't bother me.
Dear lover, don't bother me.
I can say this with certainty,
hard living's the only way I can get by.

Don't say what you want to say,
there's no reason for words to escape.
I'll wait for you if you call;
pity me, pity us all.

Dear lover, don't bother me.
Dear lover, don't bother me.
I can say this with certainty,
hard living's the only way I can get by.

All the roles you put on yourself
send me straight to somebody else.
All the roles that you push onto me
tend to cause infidelity.

Dear lover, don't bother me.
Dear lover, don't bother me.
I can say this with certainty.
