Hold me close, Ann Marie, the sun is going down
I appreciate your riding here
All the way from town
House has gone to ruins
The grass has gone to seed
And Helen's whistling 'Dixie' now,
And I suspect she will secede
High times and low times
Catch you unaware
High times and low times
Making awful strange affairs

Texas, Texas, both the sexes
Seem to find their way to you
He'll provide the wood tonight
If she supplies the screws
Sunset got the full moon drunk
But she came out, just the same
And Orion took young Virgo home
But soon forgot her name

High times and low times
Catch you unaware
High times and low times
Breeding awful ugly pairs

Peter, peter, hamburger eater
Had a wife and he used to beat her
In time she left the pumpkin patch
Went back to her home town
Over fed and oversexed
Christ, what will they think up next?
It's as creepy as a part time birthday clown

High times and low times
Catch you unaware
High times and low times
Are anything but rare

Cindy married Richard
Sonny married Cher
Liz Taylor married everyone
Nobody seems to care
And if you cruise the pawn shops
On the dirty boulevard
You'll find the wedding rings
And used bedsprings
Among the shotguns and guitars
High times and low times
Yes, I do declare!
High times and low times
They can happen anywhere

Hold me close Ann Marie, the sun is going down
I appreciate your riding here.all the way from town
