My life's
In jeopardy
Murdered in cold blood is what I'm gonna be
I haven't been home since Friday night and now my wife
Is comin' after me

Give me police protection
Gonna buy a gun so I can look after number one
Give me a bodyguard
A black belt judo expert
With a machine gun!

Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane!
When she catches up with me,
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough
To send her half-insane!

Gonna buy a fast car, put on my lead boots, and take a long, long drive
I may end up spendin' all my money,
But I'll still be alive!

All I did was have a bit too much to drink
And I picked the wrong precinct
Got picked up by the law and now I ain't got time to think

Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane!
When she catches up with me,
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough
To send her half-insane!

Gonna buy a fast car, put on my lead boots, and take a long, long drive
I may end up spendin' all my money,
But I'll still be alive!

And I'm oh, so tired of running
Gonna lay down on the floor
I gotta rest some time
So I can get to run some more
Yeah!

She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!
She's comin'!

    General CommentHe played the horns on this one too. :O

    It's straightforward and silly, about how his wife is gonna bitch to him about being gone for a while, and he thinks he has to hide from the monster.
