Sweet, Sweet Marengo

lyrics

Pretty young, I was raised
All this good and all this rage
A tiny island, yet she still hunts me down
Sweet, Sweet Marengo, yeah she takes me down
But I'm a fool, ‘cause I did it to myself
Yeah I'm a fool in love, ‘cause I did it to myself

And so it goes, man, give me one more beer
It's just never enough

She's calling up my phone
Yeah she's calling all the time
She's showing up at my door
Telling me “This is mine!”
Yeah she hunts me down
And she takes my pride
Calling me a rogue, yeah I’m outta my mind

Sitting at the bar, I find myself explaining
Hell no one's home, no love, but I can't let her go
Sweet, Sweet Marengo, God say I have sinned!

And so it goes, man, give me one more beer
It's just never enough

Past midnight, an angry wife
She locks me out in the crossfire light
Sure as hell don't want to go, but I just can't stay
I just can't stay

She hunts me down,
She wants to make me pay now
Help! Anyone? ‘Cause I can't, I can’t let her go!
Will I shine on ma? God say I have sinned!

And so it goes, man, give me one more beer
It's just never enough

Pretty young, I was raised
All this good, and all this rage
A tiny island, yet she still hunts me down
Sweet, Sweet Marengo, she still haunts me now

Still I'm a fool, ‘cause I did it to myself
I'm a fool in love, ‘cause I did it to myself
