If you want to wreck my life
Go ahead my love
Tried it once with poison
Tried it once with drugs
My circulation's running dry
It's you that drank me up
Screwed me down with kindness
Suffocating love

When it comes to fighting
Trying to play it rough
I will take you twenty rounds
I'm just too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough

Saw you on TV last night
In a rerun soap
You were young and beautiful
Already without hope

But I don't think you ever knew
What you've bitten off
But in the end, you spat me out
You could not chew me up
I'm too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough

When it comes to fighting
Trying to play it rough
I will take you twenty rounds
I'm just too tough, too tough

I married yesterday
To a teenage bride
You said it's only physical
But I love her deep inside
I still see you in my dreams
With a kitchen knife
With it poised above your head
Now who you gonna slice?

When it comes to fighting
Trying to play it rough
I will take you twenty rounds
I'm just too tough, too tough

Too tough, too tough

I don't think you'll ever know
What you've bitten off
But in the end, you spat me out
You could not chew me up
I was too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough
Too tough
Too tough, too tough
Too tough, too tough
