My Wife Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (10)



My life's in jeopardy
Murdered in cold blood is what I'm gonna be
I ain't been home since Friday night
And now my wife is coming after me

Give me police protection
Gonna buy a gun so
I can look after number one
Give me a bodyguard
A black belt Judo expert with a machine gun

Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane
When she catches up with me
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough to send her half insane
Gonna buy a fast car
Put on my lead boots
sponsored links
And take a long, long drive
I may end up spending all my money
But I'll still be alive

All I did was have a bit too much to drink
And I picked the wrong precinct
Got picked up by the law
And now I ain't got time to think

Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane
When she catches up with me
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough to send her half insane
Gonna buy a fast car
Put on my lead boots
And take a long, long drive
I may end up spending all my money
But I'll still be alive

And I'm oh so tired of running
Gonna lay down on the floor
I gotta rest some time so
I can get to run some more

She's comin'!
She's comin'!

I've been listening to this song since at least 1989 on The Who's Greatest Hits but I never comprehended the following lines until I read them on the web:

Murdered in cold blood is what I'm gonna be

Give me a bodyguard
A black belt Judo expert with a machine gun

She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough to send her half insane

I was born in India, the land of sitars and tablas, in 1994... But I still miss the sixties... Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, The Doors, Hendrix, Beatles and LSD and hippies were at their best then. And of course, there was THE WHO, with the first concept album in the history of rock-Tommy- even before Floyd's The Wall which would come after ten years...!

Wonderful song.... Worderful rock group | Reviewer: Guilherme from Rio, Brazil | 3/27/10

I was born in 1963. My older brothers loved The Who. I heard this song since I was 6 or 7yo, but just understood its lyrics a few minutes ago. Why there aren't no more rock groups like The Who. This is true rock. I'm glad I found this lyrics.

a bit of a delay | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/17/09

I'm born in the 60's, I know this song from its release and always loved it. But as I'm french and my english was too poor at the time, I just happen to understand the lyrics 5 minutes ago reading them on this site! They are so funny and acurate and well crafted. My daughter loves this LP too, long lives the Who !

Laurie comments | Reviewer: so what did I expect? | 5/8/09

Getting Laurie's p.o.v. is priceless. If you hook up with an awesome babe she is gonna get possessive and if a guy, like Laurie's boy friend, figured out how to make her laugh and get to have some Massive, Wild, Sweet,Sex, I'd say that makes John E. and those two all equal in the Genius department. And buddha man, I agree these are some of the finest lyrics. Sorry this in not original but I love the simple genius of the truth of this "drinking song."

This song is AWESOME!! | Reviewer: Laurie | 12/4/08

When I hard this song back in the day, I so thought of my boyfriend. When I didn't know where the hell he was and I was going to hunt him down and KICK HIS ASS, and I new what he was thinking if he new he was in deep shit.. And this song he would sing to me all the time and he would make me LAUGH so from wanting to KICK his ASS, we would Have Some Massive, Wild, Crazy SEX!! SWEET!!! I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!

Entwhistle knew | Reviewer: Nachtigall | 11/22/07

Back when My Wife hit the airwaves I was single and quite alone, I said catchy lyrics with Who instrumentation. Here it is Thanksgiving Day 2007 and it haunts, so I downloaded it, haven't heard since its year of release, and with my own Wife, how insightful and why don't I see it more in other songs or in Hollywood? Why was it that Entwhistle was the one to say what is on most husbands' minds? There is a movie right there in that song (lest they offend the thought police).

So damn straight on the money | Reviewer: neogeoman | 7/3/07

Brothers, does John E. hit it on the money or what? After a long night of sever 'wify' scolding I know I can find solitude in this fine tune and know that someone else out there is suffering just as much as I......

oh so nice | Reviewer: buddha man | 5/20/07

i was born in 1953 and i suppose these are the finest lyrics that i can relate to bar none....
