Pete Shelley - Better off Without a Wife Lyrics | FAST DOWNLOAD

Better off Without a Wife

All my friends are married
Every Tom and Dick and Harry
You must be strong if you're to go it alone
Here's to the bachelors and bowery bums
All that feel that they're the ones
That are better off without a wife

I like to sleep until the crack of noon
Midnight howlin' at the moon
Goin' out when I want to and I come home when I please
Don't need to ask permission
If I wanna go out fishin'
Never have to ask for the keys

I've never been no Valentino
But I had a girl who lived in Reno
Left me for a trumpet player, didn't let it get me down
He was wanted for assault
Though he said it weren't his fault
You know the coppers rode him right out of town

I like sleepin' to the crack of noon
Midnight howlin' at the moon
Goin' out when I want to and I come home when I please
Don't need to ask permission
If I wanna go out fishin'
Never have to ask for the keys

I've been sleepin' to the crack of noon
Midnight howlin' at the moon
Goin' out when I want to, comin' home when I please
Don't need to ask permission
If I wanna go out fishin'
Never have to ask for the keys

So I'm selfish 'bout my privacy
But as long as I can be with me
We get along so very well I can't believe it
I love to chew the fat with folks
I've been listening to all your dirty jokes
And I'm thankful for these friends I do receive

I been sleepin' to the crack of noon
Midnight howlin' at the moon
Goin' out when I want to, comin' home when I please
I don't need to ask permission
If I wanna go out fishin'
Never have to ask for the keys

Here's to the bachelors and bowery bums
Those that feel that they're the ones
That are better off without a wife
