The Lyrics

Ah, the joys of being gloriously single.
I sit here on my sofa and
I am happy to be alone
I can just lounge around in my underwear
And talk on the telephone
I can go out anytime I want
That's why I'm on my own
I've got a mom and I don't need another, don't need another or

Ball and chain
You'll never see me luggin' around that
Ball and chain
You'll never see me luggin' around one
No way, no way

I stay out all day on the go
And I don't have to check in
And I can take a trip down to Mexico
To try to tan my skin
All this freedom's got me feelin' good
I cannot help but grin
I used to date, it was lead in my Nikes, lead in my Nikes, no

Ball and chain
You'll never see me luggin' around that
Ball and chain
You'll never see me luggin' around one
No way, no way, no way

(Instrumental)

I used to date, it was lead in my Nikes, lead in my Nikes, no

(Chorus)

Well, I don't have to leave the toilet seat down
Or sit there watching "The View"
I can turn the TV up as loud as I want
Or I can open my mouth when I chew
If I want to stay up late at night
It's not up for review
Someday I might date, but for now it's a no-go,
Now it's a no-go, no...

(Chorus)

Well done, Aurelius. I've got to give 5s to you and your lead-free Nikes.
