i want my rib back lyrics – kenny chesney

(fred koller/keith whitley)

now the bible tells the story about adam’s rib.
how the lord made a woman for companionship.
and the first thing she did,
was take a bite of that forbidden fruit.
well, i guess we’ll be paying till the end of time,
at least that’s how it is with that woman of mine.
oh lord, i think i want my rib back.

now this is wrong and, baby, that ain’t right.
and i’m huggin’ tryin’ to please that woman day and night.
she’s never satisfied although i try to do the best that i can.
somethin’s got a change honey, i’m gonna leave.
i won’t let evolution gonna make a monkey out of me,
oh lord, i think i want my rib back.

there’s been a hole in wallet and a pain in my side,
ever since i made that girl my blushing bride.
her daddy calls her angel,
and her momma calls her three times a night.
her cousins on the sofa, her sister’s got my car,
her brother’s drink my liquor like my house was a bar,
oh lord, well, i think i want my rib back.

now this is wrong and, baby, that ain’t right.
and i’m huggin’ tryin’ to please that woman day and night.
she’s never satisfied although i try to do the best that i can.
somethin’s got a change honey, i’m gonna leave.
i won’t let evolution gonna make a monkey out of me,
oh lord, i think i want my rib back.

oh lord, i think i want my rib back.
