Lyrics

LOVE IS A MANY-SPLINTERED THING

My wife said I never listen.
At least I think that's what she said.
Right before I got christened
With a beer bottle to the head.

She said, "That's good for what ails ya!"
Though I think it was Guinness® Stout.
Funny how your brain fails ya
Just before the lights go out.

Love is a many-splintered thing,
Played out in a boxing ring.
Best you can do is keep on wishin'
For that final-bell split decision.

Yeah, every time I stop to think,
It gets harder to start again.
Quicker than a butterfly's blink,
I'm in a zero state of Zen.

"You tryin' to get smart with me?"
She screamed, her face a red-hot glow.
I shouldn't have quipped so quickly,
"If I was, how would you know?"

Love is a many-splintered thing,
Played out in a boxing ring.
Best you can do is keep on wishin'
For that final-bell split decision.

Some things are better left unsaid,
Better kept close to the vest.
Could prevent a right to the head,
Or a straight shot to the chest.

Love is a many-splintered thing,
Played out in a boxing ring.
Best you can do is keep on wishin'
For that final-bell split decision.

Float like a butterfly,
Sting like a bee -
Holy matrimony!
