Swing, swing
up and down
Turn turn turn around
Ground round and roundabout
and over again.

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
and no one else
will take my place.

(chorus: Frances)
The sun shines in my bedroom when you play
and the raining always starts when you go away.
The sun shines in my bedroom when you play
and the raining always starts when you go away.

(Eugene)
Swing, swing
Up and down
Turn turn turn around
Ground round and roundabout
and over again.

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
and no one else
will take my place.

(repeat chorus: Frances)

(instrumental)

(Eugene)
I've lived my life
on the edge of a knife
And I can't give it up.

(Frances)
In the fast lane of misery and pain
And I can't give it up.

(Eugene)
I've had a good time
on the weeds and the wine
And I can't give it up.

(Frances)
I've been up, been down,
below and above ground,
And I can't give it up.

(both)
And I can't give it up.

(guitar)

(Eugene)
Better under the table
than under the ground,
And I can't give it up.

(Frances)
I lack what it take,
but my life's a mistake,
And I can't give it up.

(Eugene)
It all went wrong
the day I was born,
And I can't give it up.

(Frances)
I've tried to invest,
but I was a mess.
And I can't give it up.

(both)
And I can't give it up.

(guitar piece)

(Eugene)
It's hard to refuse
when you've nothing to lose,
And I can't give it up.

(Frances)
I need to drink more,
My life's such a bore,
And I can't give it up.

(Eugene)
I've had my fill
and I've made my will.
And I can't give it up.

(Frances)
I drink all I can
'cause it makes me a man,
And I can't give it up.

(both)
And I can't give it up.

<dd>Long brown hair, eyes of green.
prettiest girl I've ever seen.
and you'll never miss what you've never had
oh, you'll never miss what you've never had.

Tried and tried to stay away,
but you'll never miss what you never had

I really miss you,
And if I'd only asked your name again...

Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to die for thee.
