I come home in the morning
Fingering her bobby pin
Maybe she gave me bad luck
I've got back luck and I can't win
Or I come home in the evening
From wherever it is I've been
Same two ghosts on the couch bed, there
Same bottle of bath tub gin

The sun comes up like a prom dress
But it goes down just like a Christmas tree
And doesn't it look so highbrow
While it plugs its light on me
Out on the street the ground is freezing
And the clouds are settling in
I've seen her jump through hoops of flame
Ah but I, I've got her bobby pin

Oh, Barbara Anne, oh Donna
Oh Marianne, oh my darlin' Lindy Lou
All those songs those men wrote for you
They're easy enough to see though
They rushed in to be your prisoners
Then remained dissatisfied
And then their luck begins to change
Ain't it hard, ain't it hard to sympathize
