    Lyrics

    My ship came and she sunk it
    I was the toast of the town and she drunk it
    I had a run of good luck and she ran it right into the ground
    And now she's puttin' on a show and I get to play the clown

    I had the wind in my sails and she took it
    I had the world by the tail and she shook it
    I reached out for a life line and she threw me a noose
    I got the short end of the chicken and she got the golden goose

    She's living it up and I'm tryin' to live it down
    Just when I got it all together, it's all about to come unwound
    Everybody laughin' behind my back, baby sure is a sad old sound
    She's out there livin' it up and I'm trying to live it down

    I had my ducks in a row and she shot 'em
    I had my eggs in a basket she dropped 'em
    I threw her outta the house but she was back like a boomerang
    Sometimes you get the honey, sometime all you get is the stang

    She's living it up and I'm tryin' to live it down
    Just when I got it all together, it's all about to come unwound
    Everybody laughin' behind my back, baby sure is a sad old sound
    She's out there livin' it up and I'm trying to live it down
    She's livin' it up and I may never live it down
