I came staggerin' in, in the middle of the night
I got my alibi sewed up nice and tight
Cracked the bedroom door, I tried to keep it from squeakin’
'Cause I know there's a wildcat in there sleepin'
But the, the light was on and the bed was made
And there's a dear John written on a pillow case

She said, I've gone to the Bahamas, I've had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just slowin' you down
She said, I found somebody that likes the things that you used to

Yeah, and he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
And baby, he's a looker too
She said, it was a chance of a lifetime what was I supposed to do

Oh yeah, I woke up this mornin' in a terrible mess
I had the telephone ringin' and her cat on my chest
I'm wipin' the sleep out of my bloodshot eyes
Oh, it's gotta be her callin' to apologize
She must be feelin' bad 'cause she done me wrong
Then I, I pushed the button on a Code-A-Phone

She said, I've gone to the Bahamas, I've had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just slowin' you down
She said, I found somebody that likes the things that you used to

Yeah, she said, he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
And baby, he's a looker too
She said, it was a chance of a lifetime what was I supposed to do

Oh, and I got the stereo and she got the music
Yeah, and I got this washer but I don't know how to use it

She's gone to the Bahamas, had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just slowin’ you down
She said, I found somebody that likes the things that you used to

Yeah, she said, he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
And baby, he's a looker too
She said, it was a chance of a lifetime what was I supposed to do
Oh yeah, it was a chance of a lifetime what was I supposed to do

Maybe you can come get this cat
