[A]I told you why I [D]changed my [E]mind[A] [A]
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
Well I've freed my head from your garden rails
Now it's a [D]legal [E]matter, [A]baby
You [D]got me [E]on the [A]run
It's a [D]legal [E]matter, [A]baby
A [D]legal matter from now [E]on

My mind's lost in a household fog
Wedding gowns and catalogs
Kitchen furnishings and houses
Maternity clothes and baby's trousers
It's a legal matter, baby
Marryin's no fun
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on
(repeat intro riff)

I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
Well, I've freed my head from your garden rails
Now it's a legal matter, baby
You got me on the run
It's a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on
| A | A | A | A |
You[A] ain't the first and you [D]ain't the [E]last
I [A]gain and lose my [D]women [E]fast
I [A]never want to [D]make them [E]cry
I [A]just get bored, don't [D]ask me [E]why
[D]I just wanna keep doing all the dirty little things I do
[E]And not work all day in an office just to bring my money back to you
[A]Sorry, baby
(repeat intro pattern)
