Amanda Jones is the girl
who lives in my building
and one day i asked her on a date
we met the next day at the diner
on the corner for coffee
and i asked if she needs a fee

whoa Ms. Jones, believe me
when I say that you complete me
and we would make a damn fine team
whoa Ms. Jones, relieve me
and say that you relieve me
and my shitty life will be redeemed

she said she had to go
and that she had no room in her life
for a steady boyfriend like me
i said i understood
and that i was sorry for wasting her time
and went home and watched tv

whoa Ms. Jones, i'm sorry
for the inconvenience
and i didn't want to bother you at all
hey Ms. Jones, who's the boyfriend?
i saw you come home with last night
i got your pictures on my wall

so i decided that i was going to have to
make the first move and get Amanda Jones alone
i planed on waiting until she got home from work
and i would force my way into her home

whoa Ms. Jones, believe me
when i say that you were meant for me
and without you i would surely die
whoa Ms. Jones, believe me
when i say that you were meant for me
and without me you are gonna die

Amanda Jones got wind of my plans
and she bought herself a gun
then waited for me in her place
when i walked through the door
i saw her with a 44
pointed directly at my face

whoa Ms. Jones, believe me
i only wanted to return your keys
you left them on the floor
whoa Ms. Jones, put the gun down
i didn't mean to scare you
when i leave don't forget to lock the door

Amanda Jones went without much of a fight
even in spite of her attempt at a defense
