And I wish I'd never met you
And I wish that I would cry
And I hunger for you, baby

And I know deep down inside

And I wish that I had a dollar
And I wish I had a dime
And I wish I could collect from you
For all your sexy crimes, yeah

And I wish that I had a dollar
I would buy you another drink
And all the love you'd taken back
Was all that you could sink

And all the preacher told me
And all the motels
And all the love you'd taken back
Would all end up in hell, well

And I wish that I had never met you
(...) and let me down
And all my dreams were broken
And just lying on the ground

And I (...) met you
And I curse the way of life
And all that you (...)
(...), well

And I wish the day I told you
Was all like I said
And I just can't trust you, baby
You're just lying on the head, well

And I wish I had a dollar
And I wish I had a dime
For all  the lies you told me
And all your sexy crimes

And I've just got to leave you
Lying in your dreams
Cause all those lies are broken
And all those sexy dreams, well
