Lady luck and four leaf clovers
Won't ease this hurt I feel all over
My life was one special occasion
'Til you're leaving dampened the situation

Now I'm standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
I'm standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down

My car got repossessed this morning
Harder times I haven't seen in years
Girl, you better throw me a life preserver
'Cause I'm about to drown in my own tears, yeah

And Lord, I've been standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
I'm standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down

Standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
I'm standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down

And my car got repossessed this morning
Harder times I haven't seen in years
Girl, you better throw me a life preserver, yeah
'Cause I'm about to drown in my own tears, yeah

I'm just standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
I'm just standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down

I'm standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
I'm just standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
