Lyrics SITTING DOWN BY MY WINDOW,
AND I WAS LOOKIN' OUT AT THE RAIN
SITTING DOWN BY MY WINDOW, BABY,
AND I WAS SITTIN' THERE
LOOKIN' OUT AT THE RAIN
YOU KNOW SOMETHIN' STRUCK ME,
CLAMPED ON TO ME JUST LIKE A...
JUST LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN.

I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO
THESE OL' MEAN THINGS
I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO
THESE OL' MEAN THINGS TO ME
BECAUSE YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU,
AND I'M SO SICK
AND TIRED OF LIVIN' IN MISERY.

I KNOW YOU GONNA MISS ME, BABY,
OH YES, YOU'RE GONNA MISS
ALL OF THOSE SWEET THINGS.
I KNOW YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME, BABY,
YOU'RE GONNA MISS
ALL OF THOSE SWEET, SWEET THINGS.
AND THEN YOU'LL FIND
THAT YOUR WHOLE LIFE
WILL BE LIKE MINE,
ALL WRAPPED UP
LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN.

I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO THESE OL' MEAN THINGS
I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO
THESE OL' MEAN THINGS TO ME
I SAID THAT LOVE'S
GONNA LAST WITH YOU FOREVER,
IT'S GONNA LAST,
I SAID IT'S GONNA LAST,
OH, GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY,
FOR ALL ETERNITY,
WHOA, YEAH.
