Hated school and had no dreams 
Wasn't going very far

then he got religion and she got a job
It's on her back it's in his job

And it costs lots of money money oh

fourth verse
Break down nearly every day
Should'a know I couldn't get away
Got lucky with the girl next door 
she was lonely and didn't care

fifth verse
She was young she was dark she was fair
Wrapped herself around you with her stare
You'd explode if she touched you there 
touched you there touched you there

third verse

chorus twice

outro:   repeat to fade
Can you hear me 
Can you show me
A           C
You're on top of the world tonight
