Billy was a small town loner
Who never did dream
Of ever leaving Southern Arizona
Or ever hearing wedding bells ring

He never had a lot of luck with the ladies
But he sure had a lot of good working skills
Never cared about climbing any ladder
He knew the way in a small cafe, found the will

He met Miss Bonnie
And a little bit of her was a little too much
A few movies and a few months later
The feeling got strong enough

They didn't own a car
So it must have been love
That drove him uptown for a diamond
And that's when he started going

Over the line, working overtime
To give her things just to hear her say she don't deserve them
But he loved her and he just kept going overboard

Over the limit to afford to give her things he knew she wanted
'Cause without her, where would he be?
See, it's not for him, she is his only need

Ring on her finger and one on the ladder
A new promotion every now and then
Bonnie worked until she couldn't tie her apron
Then stayed at home and had the first of two children

And my, how the time did fly
The babies grew up and moved away
Left them sitting on the front porch rocking
And Billy watching Bonnie's hair turn gray

And every once in a while you could see him get up
And he'd head downtown
'Cause he heard about something she wanted
And it just had to be found

Didn't matter how simple or how much
It was love and boy
Ain't that love just something
When it's strong enough to keep a man going

Over the line, working overtime
To give her things just to hear her say she don't deserve them
But he loved her and he just kept going overboard

Over the limit to afford to give her things he knew she wanted
'Cause without her, where would he be?
See, it's not for him, she is his only need

Over the line, working overtime
She is his only need
Overboard, over the limit
She is his only need
