Rachel showed up at my front door
said her landlord said you can't live here no more
you ain't paid the rent, ain't paid the bills
you ain't good looking ain't got no thrills

I said I'm sorry
sorry for what I won't do
yeah I'm sorry
sorry for you

tried to help her out a bunch of times
payback mine all I got was lines
the checks in the mail Frank skipped bail
can ya loan me 30 bucks 'til he's out of jail

said I'm sorry
what I won't do
said I'm sorry
sorry for you!

everybodys got to be wrong some times
but nobodys got the right
to take what is mine

said I'm sorry
what I won't do
said I'm sorry
sorry for you

when Rach came back in a couple of weeks
had a wad of chew in her cheek
can you watch the kids for a week or 2
if you do it for me you know I do it for you

said I'm sorry
what I won't do
said I'm sorry
sorry for you

hey Rachel while you're at it
why don't you take back that little dog
and those kittens you left here
about 6 months ago
they gotta go!
