I got three kids and a lovely wife
I got a happy home and a
electric carving knife

that's why I wrote this song
because there's nothin' wrong
nope, there's nothin' wrong with my life
there's nothin' wrong, nope, there's nothin' wrong
there's just nothin' wrong with my life

I got a four wheel drive
and I got a computer hard drive
and I got Asheville? jive
and I got plenty of motivational jive

that's why I wrote this song
because there's nothin' wrong
there's just nothin' wrong with my life
nothin' wrong, nothin' wrong, nothin' wrong with my life

but then one day
my wife phoned
to tell me I was
on my own

and now there's one thing wrong
one thing wrong
one thing wrong with my life

so I had to change my song from "there been nothin' wrong" to
"there been somethin' wrong" with my life

there's somethin' wrong, there's somethin' wrong, now there's somethin' wrong with my life (arooo)
to change my song from "there been nothin' wrong" to "there been somethin' wrong" with my life

well I, I caught my wife, and I,
I had my electric knife and I just
carved her up
and put her into my strife?

and now there's nothin' wrong
no, there's nothin' wrong
there's just nothin' wrong with my life
nothin' wrong, nope there's nothin' wrong, there's just nothing' wrong with my life

Speaking:
hello sheriff, what can I do for you?
my wife left me? no you got the wrong end of the stick sheriff, I left her.
I left her all over the place.
I left her down at old Jackson's well, down Simpson's creek, Shrimpy's? store
you'll have a hell of a time putting her back together, sheriff, hell of a time.
the law's a joke and I'm laughing sheriff.

a-one two, one two three four

    General CommentI think he says he carved her up and 'put an end to my strife', though I can see how a New Zealander putting on a Southern(? My geography is awful) US accent sounds like 'into'.
    And I thought the 'Ashville Jive' part was actually 'asphalt drive', but again I may be wrong!

    Anywho, love this song. I think Jemaine said in an interview that most of the songs he wrote are about love, while Bret's songs tend to be about death and murder... hehe.
