A mans home is his castle

Linda works the diner, pourin coffe, slingin hash
She said " I wouldnt have come in today
But I really need the cash
I know I cant fool anyone 'cause dark glasses tell no lies
But make-up wont cover up a blackened eye"
Oh oh oh oh

You see Jimmy works construction now
But yesterday it rained
So he went down to the liquor store
And by noon he felt no pain
I came in an hour late then I let his supper burn
Well he the roof, hit the wall
and then it was my turn

He said "A man's home is his castle
It always has been and so it remains"
But he holds the keys in a fist of rage
His home is his castle
And mine is a cage

Someone must have heard the noise and dialed 911
And the cop who showed up at the door asked
"Is there a problem son"
Jimmy smiled and said "No sir just a little fight thats all
hey you know how it gets sometimes when ya layin down the law"
Oh oh oh oh

So I pulled out my suitcase, I started packin it up my clothes
and Jimmy said "Now Linda where do you expect to go with those"
I told him "I have tried, but no an ounce of love survives"
Well he grabbed my wrist and shouted
"You're not leavin here alive<"

She said "Im savin up my money and when I get the nerve I'll run
But Jim dont give up easily so I intend to buy a gun
He will never see the way he treats me is a crime
Somebody oughta lock him but Im the one done the time

He said "A man's home is his castle
It always has been and so it remains"
But he holds the keys in a fist of rage
His home is his castle
And mine is a cage
