We sigh, we sigh, we just wanna cry
We cry, we cry, we just wanna die
We're never together-you're helping yourself
By taking all the good things away from life's shelve

We part in the morning and go our own way
Then meet at bedtime to end off the day
We're hurting each other by helping ourself
And taking all the good things away from lifes shelves

Too much, too much just helping yourself
Too much, too much you'll break down those shelves

If you ever see me hanging around
Then spare me a thought and please do not frown
Remember my wife, pal and say to yourself
It was due to the good things she took from life's shelves.
