Tryin' to keep that wolf at bay
Twelve out of twenty-four hours a day
I'm bustin' it, breakin' my back
Swing that hammer, stomp that shovel
Boss man says "boy your pullin; a double"
It's always me pickin' up the slack
Nobody said it was easy

Chorus
But girl it's been a hard long day
It seems we work our lives away
Five o'clock I'm beat, dead on these two feet
But girl when I come home to you
The only thing I wanna do
Is baby hold you tight, 'cause all that gets me through
After a long hard day is a long night with you

One of those nights where we don't sleep
The two of us fittin' like a puzzle piece
Turnin' up the heat with the lights down low
So go ahead honey and pour the wine
I'm a little overdue for some overtime in your lovin' arms
I ain't lettin' you go
Yeah tonight we'll take it slow and easy

Repeat Chorus

Girl when I come home to you
The only thing I wanna do
Is baby hold you tight, 'cause all that gets me through
After a long hard day is a long night with you

[Thanks to Georg for lyrics]
