Lyrics
I got my alibi sewed up nice & tight
Cracked the bedroom door, I tried to keep it from squeakin'
'Cause I know there's a wildcat in there sleepin'
But the, the light was on & the bed was made
& there's a dear john written on the pillow case

[Chorus]
She said I've gone to the Bahamas
I've had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just a slowin' you down
She said I found somebody that likes the things that you used to
Yeah & he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
& baby he's a looker too
She said it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do

Oh yeah, I woke up this mornin' in a terrible mess
I had the telephone ringin' & her cat on my chest
I'm wipin' the sleep out of my bloodshot eyes
It's gotta be her callin' to apologize
She must be feelin' bad 'cause she done me wrong
Then I pushed the button on the code-a-phone

[Repeat Chorus]
She said I've gone to the Bahamas
I've had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just a slowin' you down
She said I found somebody that likes the things that you used to
Yeah she said he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
& baby he's a looker too
She said it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do

Oh & I got the stereo & she got the music
Yeah & I got this washer but I don't know how to use it

[2nd Chorus]
She's gone to the Bahamas
Had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just a slowin you down
She said I found somebody that likes the things that you used to
Yeah she said, he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
& baby he's a looker too

She said it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do
Oh yeah, it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do

Maybe you can come get this cat
