I had the seven year itch, scratched it out in three
Well, you may say "How?"
But you don't know me
I've taken my licks and I'm paying my fee
I had the seven year itch, scratched it out in three

Been riding my mind 'round my neighborhood
Getting 'nowhere slow but I'm feeling good
Stayed up all night, that's when I'm at my best
Sleep all day and that's too much rest

I had the seven year itch, scratched it out in three
Well, you may say "How?"
But you don't know me
I've taken my licks and I'm paying my fee
I had the seven year itch, scratched it out in three

I went crazy one day but I came back when
I caught myself going crazy again
I decided to write the world's best song
But when I got around to it, it had done moved on

I had the seven year itch, scratched it out in three
Well, you may say "How?"
But you don't know me
I've taken my licks and I'm paying my fee
I had the seven year itch, scratched it out in three
