We weren't afraid of nothing
Wasn't nothing we couldn't do
She held her breath once for seven minutes
And never turned blue

She could burn a woman down
If she felt she'd been unkind
Or if she thought she was comin' on to me
It drove her out of her mind

Oh yeah, it's true
We just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to
Yeah, it's true
We just did what we wanted
Whenever we wanted to

She was my very best friend
My biggest enemy
On judgment day, we'd go either way
It was all the same, you see

She was not afraid of Satan
In fact she thought he was a joke
Said she'd tear off his tail
And run her fist down his throat

Oh yeah, it's true
We just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to
Yeah, it's true
We just did what we wanted
Whenever we wanted to

Ooh ooh yeah, ooh ooh yeah
Ooh ooh yeah, ooh ooh yeah

She was the apple of temptation
The apple of my eye
Used to rest on a bed of burning coals
Every single night

And I know she's out there somewhere
She's wrestlin' in the bones
With confetti in her hair
You bet she's not alone

Oh yeah, it's true
We just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to
Yeah, it's true
We just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to

Yeah, it's true, we just did what we did
Did what we did, hell, we just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to, oh yeah
Whenever we wanted to
