Who's that woman on your arm
All dressed up to do you harm?
And I'm hip to what she'll do
Give her just about a month or two

Bit off more than I can chew
And I knew, yeah I knew what it was leading to
Some things, well, I can't refuse
One of them, one of them the bedroom blues

She delivers right on time
I can't resist a corny line
But take the shine right off you shoes - yeah, right off your shoes
Carrying, carrying the bedroom blues

Oh yeah, in the bar you're getting drunk, oh yeah
I ain't in love, I ain't in luck, oh no, no, no
Hide the switch and shut the light - won't you shut it?
Yeah, let it all come down tonight, let it all come down       (Let it loose, let it all come down)

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
Your face you'll never see no more
Oh no, no, no
No, let it all come down tonight - won't you let it?
Yeah, keep your tears hid out of sight

Yeah, let it loose...
Let it loose, let it all come down
