Delbert Mcclinton – Livin' It Down lyrics
My ship came and she sunk it
I was the toast of the town and she drunk it
I had a run of good luck and she ran it right into the ground
And now's she's puttin' on a show and
I get to play the clown

I had the wind in my sails and she took it
I had the world by the tail and she shook it
I reached out for a lifeline and she threw me a noose
I got the short end of the chicken and
She got the golden goose

She's livin' it up, and I'm tryin' to live it down
Just when I got it all together,
It's all about to come unwound
Everbody laughing behind my back, baby
Sure is a sad old sound
She's out there livin' it up and I'm tryin' to live it down

Oh man I'm having a hard time
I wouldn't talk to a dog the way that woman talks to me
Sheesh, and money
I ain't got no more money
She done spent all my money
It's bad bad business, bad business

I had my ducks in a row and she shot 'em
I had my eggs in a basket and she dropped 'em
I her out of the house but she was back like a boomerang
Sometime you get the honey
Sometime all you get is the sting

She's livin' it up, and I'm tryin' to live it down
Just when I got it all together,
It's all about to come unwound
Everbody laughing behind my back, baby,
Sure is a sad old sound
She's out there livin' it up and I'm tryin' to live it down
She's livin' it up, and I may never live it down
