Well, I got a woman
She rules my house with an iron fist
Well, I got a woman
She rules my house with an iron fist

She screams out, "Jack the Ripper"
Every time I try to give that girl a kiss

Well, I got a woman
She strikes me down with a fist of lead, oh yeah
Yes, I got a woman
She strikes me down with a fist of lead

We bed in a bucket of butcher's knives
I awake with a hatchet hanging over my head

Well you know the story of the viper
It's long and lean with poison tooth
Well, you know the story of the viper
It's long, it's lean with poison tooth

Well, they're hissin' under the floorboards
Hanging down in bunches from my roof

Well, I got a woman
She just hollers what she wants from where she's at
Well, I got a woman
She just hollers what she wants from where she's at

[Incomprehensible]

Yeah, I got a woman
She rules my house with an iron fist, oh yeah
Well, I got a woman
She rules my house with an iron fist

She screams out, "Jack the Ripper"
Every time I try to give that girl a kiss, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
