In Spite of Ourselves
by John Prine



(Man)
She don't like her eggs all runny
She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
She looks down her nose at money
She gets it on like the easter bunny
She's my baby, I'm her honey
Never gonna let her go

(Woman)
He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays
Caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies
He ain't too sharp but he gets things done
Drinks his beer like it's oxygen
But he's my baby, I'm his honey
Never gonna let him go

(Together) Chorus
In spite of ourselves, we'll end up sittin on a rainbow
Against all odds, honey we're the big door prize
We're gonna spite our noses right off of our faces
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts dancin' in our eyes

(Man)
She thinks all my jokes are corny
Convict movies maker her horny
She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs
She swears like a sailor when she shaves her legs
She takes a lickin', and keeps on tickin'
Never gonna let her go

(Woman)
He's got more balls than a big brass monkey
He's a wacked out weirdo and a love bug junkie
He's sly as a fox, crazy as a loon
Payday comes and he's a howlin' at the moon
But he's my baby, I don't mean maybe
Never gonna let him go

(Together) Chorus
In spite of ourselves, we'll end up sittin on a rainbow
Against all odds, honey we're the big door prize
We're gonna spite our noses right off of our faces
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts dancin' in our eyes

Repeat Chorus
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts dancin' in our eyes
(Spoken) In spite of ourselves..
