I met a man in Texas, and oh, he was so fine
And I said to myself, self, I'm gonna make him mine
He owned a lot of oil wells and his bank roll sure was healthy
And I knew if I married him I'd suddenly be wealthy

Oh, I'll oil wells love you, I'll oil wells care
I'll oil wells need you, I want you oil wells, dear

Well, I never had no money, not a penny to my name
And I said, "I'd find a rich man and I'd love my way to fame"
So he took me in his arms and I cuddled up real near
The money bug then bit me and I whispered in his ear

Oh, I'll oil wells love you, I'll oil wells care
I'll oil wells need you, I want you oil wells, dear

He looked in to my eyes and thought he saw a love light shine
Nearly did he know that that light was dollar signs
Now that we are married, there ain't nothin' left to tell
We'll live happily ever after because, all is well that ends well

Oh, I'll oil wells love you, I'll oil wells care
I'll oil wells need you, I want you oil wells, dear
