She had a sulky smile
She took a standard pose as she presented herself
She had sultry eyes
She made it perfectly plain that she was his for a price

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might

She wore hurt surprise
As she re-checked her make-up to protect herself
She showed less than pride
She made it totally clear that she was his for a price

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
Please just leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might

She gave him her look
That would have worked on any other man in sight
He could not mistake
She wanted to go back with him and spend the night

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
Please just leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might

She turned, tossed her head
And then she started to make her final exit line
She showed real disdain
As if explaining again she could be his for a price

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might

But he said leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might
