Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long and a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my lips to kiss nobody
Kiss nobody but you
I can't use my legs to chase nobody
Chase nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my arms to hold nobody
Hold nobody but you
Can't use my legs to chase nobody
Chase nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my arms to hold nobody
Hold nobody but you
Can't use my heart to love nobody
Love nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
