I recall once upon a time
Livin' was so easy and I felt so fine
My, my, my right before my very eyes
Satan came with fire to burn me
And wouldn't listen when they warned me
Dagger in my back
She's calling me honey wouldn't stand back
For neither love nor money oh yeah
Thirty minutes after my ship set sail
She put up a sign and my house began to wail
Why, why, why I couldn't see it in my little girl's eyes?
She had such a way to fool me
Lord a way to fool me
And I would ask the woman
"Can you find it in yourself to please stand back?
You ain't gonna rule me" Oh yeah
Just when all began to fade
I reached out threw the ace of spades
I put her on a train to the Everglades
Now that it's all over and gone
Somehow I just don't feel so alone
Why, why, why It seemed like such a waste of time?
She did not ever seem to know me
But now it's much too late to show me
But if I ever see that woman
Walkin down the street I'll just stand back
And try to move away slowly oh yeah
