When Loretta left me back here in Saint Paul
My head started spinnin', my heart hit the wall
Now I gotta get it worked on
Gotta get it worked on
Well, I don't think it's broken but it sure hurts a lot

Like a macho man, I said I'll fix it myself
I can tell already I'm gonna need some help
Now I gotta get it worked on
I gotta get it worked on
Yeah, I'm gon' have to get me some professional help

Well now I went to see a doctor and he took one look
He just shook his head and closed his medical book
Said you better get it worked on
Better get it worked on
It ain't gonna kill ya, you're not gonna die

Maybe I should go ahead and open up and just let it bleed
'Cause if I let it turn to stone
I'll never find the love I need

Maybe I should go ahead and open up and just let it bleed
'Cause if I let it turn to stone
I'll never find the love I need

I went down to New Orleans to see Miss Laroux
She said You're too far gone there ain't a thing I can do
But you better get it worked on
Better get it worked on
I can give you a number of someone to call

Gotta get it worked on
Better get it worked on
