"The Drifting Housewife" as written by Gareth Michael R Liddiard, Michael Charles M Noga, Daniel Francis Luscombe and Fiona Lee Kitchin....
I was more worried about taxes
When my lovely red-eyed bride
Became a hairsplitting believer
That i should be vilified

She'd see the rudder fail me
Move to Egypt or to Spain
The hammer fell, my fate's altered
Like sparks thrown from a flame
You know the Law
Know the Law

My hopes were razed like three day growth
Then raked by nervous ticks
Was i the bulls-eye or the launch-pad?
I could never find the switch

Her eye received heaven from earth
Like an atoll petrified
Except where Saturn's life-belt
Shields a half life from your eyes
You know the Law
Know the Law

So don't go getting married
You can only change her name
You know the Law
Know the Law

I'm out here on lighthouse duty
Where the foghorns groan through space
Echo into red ant country
Through the doldrums and the wastes

I'd right the wrongs if i could
But some things can't be exchanged
So don't go getting married
You can only change her name
Don't go getting married
You can only change her name
You know the Law
Know the Law
