Now the bible tells the story about Adam's rib
How the Lord made a woman for companionship
And the first thing she did was take a bite of that forbidden fruit
Well, I guess we'll be paying till the end of time
At least that's how it is with that woman of mine
Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back

Now this is wrong and baby, that ain't right
And I'm huggin' tryin' to please that woman day and night
She's never satisfied although I try to do the best that I can
Somethin's got a change honey, I'm gonna leave
I won't let evolution gonna make a monkey out of me
Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back

There's been a hole in wallet and a pain in my side
Ever since I made that girl my blushing bride
Her daddy calls her angel and her momma calls her three times a night
Her cousins on the sofa, her sister's got my car
Her brother's drink my liquor like my house was a bar
Oh Lord, well, I think I want my rib back

Now this is wrong and, baby, that ain't right
And I'm huggin' tryin' to please that woman day and night
She's never satisfied although I try to do the best that I can
Somethin's got a change honey, I'm gonna leave
I won't let evolution gonna make a monkey out of me
Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back

Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back
