I took your name in vain
The day we strolled down the aisle
Quittin’ your rowdy ways just made me smile
What a fool I was to think I could make you change
Oh, I guess I took your name in vain

I took your name in vain
When I slipped on that golden band
But you had no intentions of becoming a better man
When you stumble in at 3 AM I can’t bear the strain
Oh, I guess I took your name in vain

I took your name in vain
And that of the Lord, too
For pairing me up with an S.O.B. like you
I think of all the years I let go down the drain
Oh, I took your name in vain

I took your name in vain
The day those papers were signed
While I’m out slaving, you’re sitting on your behind
It’s near the end of the line on this gravy train
Oh, I guess I took your name in vain

I took your name in vain
And that of the Lord, too
For pairing me up with a worthless hound like you
I think of all the years I let go down the drain
Oh, I took your name in vain

I no longer had your name
When we walked out of court
I said “So long, I’ll see you, Sport.”
Finally my heart had trumped my brain
Oh, I guess I took your name in vain
Oh, I guess I took your name in vain
