Work 20 years and they'll take care of you
They'll buy you a diamond, they'll send you on a cruise
Give it all your money, give it all your time
Then wake up one morning and wonder why

Let me up
I've had enough

I believe you baby, i know you wouldn't lie
Like a dog won't bark, like a bird won't fly
Yeah pretty little baby, you're a weapon with eyes
I know what you want, but it's a surprise
Let me up--i've had enough

Yeah, yeah, bet honest with me
Honey am i what you thought i would be

You tell me you love me baby, you'll be true
I want to believe you, but i don't know why i do
I woke up this mornin', there was a car in the drive
I didn't recognize it, who was that guy?

Let me up
I've had enough

I believe you baby, i know you wouldn't lie
Like a dog won't bark, like a bird won't fly
Yeah pretty little bab y, you're a weapon with eyes
I know what you want, but it's a surprise
Let me up--i've had enough

Yeah, yeah, yeah, i tell ya, this is not
A question of humility here
