If you want a piece 'o my heart,
take a number
If you want a piece'o me
get in line
'Cuz there ain't much of it left
and it's no wonder
If you want a piece 'o my heart
it's gonna take time
Used to be I was wild and free
and lovin' like a fool
I was young
I went divin' into
the deep end of the pool

Felt myself goin' under
when another one said goodbye
And I came to know
as I watched her go
That a man who ain't s'posed to can cry-y-y


You came to me with a love so true
I didn't know what to do
Too many blue Mondays and empty Sundays
Honey, it ain't about you

It's not that I don't want you
or that I don't think you're fine
Don't wanta keep you waitin'
but it's gotta be later
I need whiskey and plenty of ti-i-ime
