We weren´t afraid of nothing
Wasn´t nothing we couldn´t do
She held her breath once for seven minutes
And never turned blue

She could burn a woman down
If she felt she´d been unkind
Or if she thought she was coming on to me
It drove her out of her mind

[Chorus:]
Oh yeah, it´s true
We just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to
Yeah, it´s true
We just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to

She was my very best friend
My biggest enemy
On judgement day we could go either way
It was all the same you see

She was not afraid of Satan
In fact she thought he was a joke
Said she´d tear off his tail
And run her fist down his throat

[Chorus:]

She was the apple of temptation
The apple of my eye
Used to rest on a bed of burning coats
Every single night

And I know she´s out there somewhere
She´s wrestling in the bones
With confetti in her hair
You can bet she´s not alone

[Chorus:]

Yeah, it´s true
We just did what we did
Did what we did
Did what we did
Hell, we just did what we did
Whenever we wanted to
