Think youve got it tough?
Think youve got it bad?
Im married to the most unintegritous cad
Wholl sleep in just about any box he can find
And its not the box of the shipping box kind
While Ill bet you think thats not bad at all
But he drinks too, its true, till hes got enough gall
To come home and pretend he has two very large balls.
Oh is that so, Mary Jane, well I bet my lifes worse
Its the worst sort of worse, why its nearly a curse
Thats my life for you, thats the truth I do swear
Its a harder life than yours for I live with bears
Not teddies or plushies, but the real live things
I bet youll think better now of your cad and his flings.
Neither of you have it bad, none of you have it hard,
I just lost my retirement to a bet in a bar.
I bet you think a gambler isnt worth your pity or hugs
Since they hang around winos, and gangsters and thugs
