Lyrics

VERSE
I was gonna take her out to her favorite place on our anniversary
But I stayed too long at the waterin’ hole; now she’s fightin’ mad at me
She took the kids to the babysitter; it was costin’ ten dollars an hour
And she was more than just a little bit bitter that I didn’t send her no flowers

CHORUS
Layin’ down the law, she was, layin’ down the law
In rare form, she was, comin’ unglued, she was
Layin’ down the law, layin’ down the law

VERSE
She’d been all day at the beauty shop gettin’ all done up for me
Now she was just about to blow her top ’bout to turn me across her knee
I ain’t never seen a woman so mad in all of my born days
She was talkin’ so fast about bein’ had that I couldn’t get a word in edgeways

Repeat CHORUS/VERSE
I guess diamonds are a woman’s best friend from the look on her face
Yeah, she seems to love the one she got; I’m back in her good grace
Now I’ll never go, not one more time, to a happy hour, good-time place
’Cause I’d rather commit a felonious crime than for her to jump my case

Repeat CHORUS/SOLO/Repeat CHORUS/TAG
In rare form, she was, comin’ unglued, she was
Layin’ down the law, layin’ down the law…
