Too bad, she's got you by the balls
You can't get free at all
She's got your name, she's got your number
You're screaming like thunder (blue murder)
And you can't get away from it all

It's too bad, she's got you by the balls
You can't break loose at all
She's got your name, she's got your number
You're screaming like thunder
And you're trapped like a rat in a hole

It's too bad, she's got you by the balls
She's nailed you to the wall
Oh it's a shame but it's funny
She crashed your car, she spent your money
And you can't get away from it all

It's too bad
She's got you by the balls...
It's too bad, it's too bad
So sad, so sad
