The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
I finally got finished with my meeting
Out of the window, night is all I see
Thought that I'd find my woman sleeping
But she waited up 'cause it's our anniversary

Now I'm running from the wife
Hiding in the shadows
Wondering why she gets so uptight
(He was running) aaaah
(Running from the wife)

Why'd I marry a redhead, what a temper
When I do something wrong
Oh, she lets the Hulk come out
And when she is angry, time to scamper
'Cause it's better to get away
Than get pummeled all about

I was running from the wife
Hiding in the shadows
Will I survive 'til the morning light
(He was running) ohhhhhhh
(Running for his life)

We are so in love, but you see
When her dander's up, I must flee
"Won't do it again" is what I said
Got a rolling pin upside the head

I was running from the wife
Hiding in the shadows
I'm gonna die if I stand and fight tonight, oooh
(Running, running from the wife)

I gotta fly
(Running from the wife)

Now I'm running from the wife
Hiding in the shadows
I'm gonna try to stay out of sight
(He was running) Will I last the night
(Running from the wife)

(Oh why) Oh why

Dead Love - October 14, 2013 - Report this comment
Been there in my previous life. The only thing that will calm her is all-night copulation, every night, unto your death.
