(I think I cut myself)
Wanda met Duane in a local bar
next to an industrial park
Duane didn't like the clothes that she wore
but she felt so good in the dark
After a few days they said 'why wait'
and Wanda moved in to stay
into Duane's apartment on the second floor
next to the 605 freeway
They made love in the mornin'
love in the evenin', love in the afternoon
but all good things have got to come to an end
even in a warm bedroom
Duane got tired of hearing her voice
and Wanda got sick of his breath
Pretty soon they never said a word before falling asleep
on opposite sides of the bed
Oh ain't it a shame
there ain't no one to blame
when love just slips away
and only the lovers remain
Ain't it a shame
there ain't no one to blame
so the names have been changed
to protect Wanda and Duane
Wanda joined a gym but she never went
'cause it was just too far away
Duane held the tv remote control
and smoked three packs a day
Wanda thought that undercover she might take a lover
but you know that she never did
Duane fell in love with all the naked girls
in the magazines that he hid
Oh ain't it a shame
there ain't no one to blame
when love just slips away
and only the lovers remain
Ain't it a shame
there ain't no one to blame
so the names have been changed
to protect Wanda and Duane
Wanda was starin' out the front door
at the trees blowin' in the wind
She said 'maybe someday I'm gonna blow out that door
and not blow back in again'
Duane was starin' out the bedroom window
at the leaves falling from the tree
said 'maybe someday I'm gonna jump out that window
and not say goodbye when I leave'
Ain't it a shame
there ain't no one to blame
when love just slips away
and only the lovers remain
Ain't it a shame
there ain't no one to blame
so the names have been changed
to protect Wanda and Duane
I said there ain't no one to blame
so we changed our names to Wanda and Duane
