Baby, don't get too tight with me
Yes, you're far too tight for me

I've got your messages and how can I resist?
But if you come around, don't slap the cuffs upon my wrist

Baby you're tight for me, I've got to warn you, girl
You're far too tight for me, yeah

Untie those sheep shanks, yeah, and all those fancy knots
I'm not Houdini, honey, come on now and loosen up

Tight, too tight

Yeah, don't try to reel me in
With all those charm school looks
I've seen it all a thousand times
I sung that song, I wrote that fucking book

Do yourself a favor now
Don't drive me around the block
Let's split another bottle, now
Let's take a hit, loosen up

You're getting too tight with me
Cause I'm bound so tight I can't breathe

We'll watch the sun go down upon the swollen sea
If you try to chain me up, I'll vanish like a broken dream

Don't get so tight with me
Don't get so tight
Far too tight
Don't get tight with me...
