Love, oh love, oh careless love
Gimme some love, oh love, oh careless love
Love, oh love, oh careless love
Don't you see what love has done?

I pass your window by
I pass your door an' your window, too
I pass your door an' your window, too
Yes, I'm still very much in love with you

Well, I pass your window, pass your door
You pass my window and you pass my door
Woman, man
You pass my window and you pass my door
But you never get by my .44

Love, oh love, oh careless love
Can't you see what your love has done to me?

Well, I pass your door, I pass your gate
You pass my door an' you pass my gate
Yes, you pass my door an' you pass my gate
But you don't pass by my .38

Love, oh love, oh careless love
You gimme some love, oh, careless love
Love, oh love, oh careless love
Don't you see what your love has done to me?

You can pass my house, son-of-a-gun
You can pass by my house, you female son-of-a-gun
(Daughter of a pistol!)
You can pass by my house, you son-of-a-gun
But you'll not get by my .41

Love, oh love, oh careless love
Can't you see what your love has done to me?

You can pass my nest and you can pass my hive
(My what?)
You can pass my nest and you can pass my hive
You can pass my nest and you can pass my hive
But you won't pass by my .45

Love, oh love, oh careless love
Can't you see what your love has done to me?

You can pass by my window pane (I don't mind it or nothin')
Pass right by my window pane
You can pass right by my window pane
But you can't get by my .41 again

Love, oh love, oh careless love
Can't you see what your love has done to me?

You can throw your stones, you can throw your sticks
(I'll get you back, woman!)
Throw your stones, throw your sticks
You can throw your stones, you can throw your sticks
But you can't get by my thirty-old-six

Love, oh love, oh careless love...
