I recall once upon a time
Livin' was so easy and I felt so fine
But, my, my, my right before my very eyes
Satan came with fire to burn me
Wouldn't listen when they warned me
A dagger in my back while she's calling me honey
Wouldn't stand back, for neither love nor money

Thirty minutes after my ship set sail
She put up a sign and my house began to wail
But, why, why, why I couldn't see it in my little girl's eyes?
She had such a way to fool me, Lord she had a way to fool me
And I would ask the woman, can you find it in yourself to please stand back?
You ain't gonna rule me

I recall once upon a time
Livin' was so easy and I felt so fine
But, my, my, my right before my very eyes
Satan came with fire to burn me
Wouldn't listen when they warned me
A dagger in my back while she's calling me honey
Wouldn't stand back, for neither love nor money

Thirty minutes after my ship set sail
She put up a sign and my house began to wail
But, why, why, why I couldn't see it in my little girl's eyes?
She had such a way to fool me, Lord she had a way to fool me
And I would ask the woman, can you find it in yourself to please stand back?
You ain't gonna rule me
