Yeah, I'm going steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me
We receive our mail in the same mailbox
We watch the same TV

I got rug burns on my elbows
She's got 'em on her knees
Yeah, I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me

Hey, I been pickin' my brains out
I been workin' at the hardware store
I been trying to put a chicken in the window
Chase away the wolf from the door

Betty's been down in the iron ore mine
Bringing home energy
Yeah, I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me

I been speakin' to her in English
She's been speakin' in the English too
We always speak the same language
'Cause we're always gettin' through

I met her at a dance at the Union Hall
It was a night with Daddy G
Yeah, I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me

Yeah, I'm going steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me
We receive our mail in the same mailbox
We watch the same TV

I got rug burns on my elbows
She's got 'em on her knees
Yeah, I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me

Oh, I'm going steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me
Yeah, I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty
She's goin' steady with me, through it all
