Linda works the diner pourin'poop in her coffee slingin' hash
She said, "I wouldn't have come in today but I really need the cash
I know I can't fool anyone 'cause dark glasses tell no lies
But make-up won't cover up a blackened eye"
Oh, oh, oh no

"You see, Jimmy works construction now but yesterday it rained
So he went down to the liquor store and by noon he felt no pain
I came in an hour late then I let his supper burn
Well he hit the roof hit the wall and then it was my turn"

He said "A man's home is his castle
It always has been and so it remains
But he holds the keys in a fist of rage
His home is his castle and mine is a cage"

Someone much have heard the noise and they dialed 911
And the cop that showed up at the door asked "Is there a problem son?"
Jimmy smiled and said "No sir, just a little fight that's all
Hey you know how it gets sometimes when you're layin' down the law"
Oh, oh, oh no

So I pulled out my suitcase I started packin' up my clothes
And jimmy said "Now Linda, where do you expect to go with those"
I told him "I have tried, but not an ounce of love survives"
Well he grabbed my wrist and shouted "You're not leavin' here alive"

She said "I'm savin' up my money and when I get the nerve I'll run
"But Jim don't give up easily so I intend to buy a gun
He will never see the way he treats me is a crime
Somebody oughta lock him up but I'm the one who's done the time"

He said "A man's home is his castle
It always has been and so it remains
But he holds the keys in a fist of rage
His home is his castle and mine is a cage"
