(CHORUS)
Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line
Don't know why you
Wanna jump on me
Baby, baby, baby
You're making me cry

Baby, I, I'm gonna
Find myself someone new
Someone who will be true
And no more toeing the line

I know it's over
Cause I see the signs
Don't let me waste
Your precious time

Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line
If you want to get rid of me
Baby, baby, baby
You're doing fine

Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line
I'm gonna put on
My walking shoes and
Leave you far behind

You're rolling over
And over so divine
But you can't fix this
Broken heart of mine

(CHORUS) 2X

Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line
Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line

Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line
Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line

Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line
Baby, I'm tired
Of toeing the line

    Yeah you got involved with her because she's such a doll, nice breasts, wasp's waist and such a nice round and perky rear end, but she's such a pain in the ass, well her's so sexy, but anyways, she's crazy... She's so demanding that you got tired of toeing her line. Trying to do the impossible to please her. She;s gorgeous, but hey.. She asks for too much. That's why i got tired to toeing her line, now i date the class nerd, glasses but she's really gorgeous too, she haven't noticed it, but i did.

    Since "toeing the line" means adhering to a (perhaps arbitrary) standard, the singer is tired of being held to expectations that the partner is not. Not sure what the bridge ("your rolling over... ") is saying beyond that a little change isn't enough at this point.

    As i see it, the song is the final warning to a "mate" that doesn't have enough respect the first person to either try to work things out or hit the bricks. It is ashame the some folk believe that it is up to one person to keep a relationship together, when it takes two.
