She doesn’t dare go in the place with those bruises on her face
So she goes through the drive-thru and keeps her sunglasses on
She didn’t know when she married that man
She’d get to know him like the back of his hand
But now she’s had enough, and the battle lines are drawn

He’s in a bar chasing Cuervo with Tecate
He doesn’t know she’s been taking karate
The way she figures it about July
She’ll finally have the belt to match her eye

She’s on a mission as the months pass
Five days a week and never misses a class
And now she’s up to breakinboards and concrete blocks

He’s in a bar chasing Cuervo with Tecate
He doesn’t know she’s been taking karate
Now here it is just about July
She’s gonna get that belt to match her eye

He stumbled through the door tonight
And started treatin’ her rough
Well, she took one look at him and her training kicked in
And she’d finally had enough

He threw a punch, she spun around
Grabbed his arm and put him on the ground
Grabbed a cuttinboard on his way down and she kicked it in half
His knees hit the floor, his chin hit a chair
Knocked out his tooth and it flew through the air
Grabbed his head by the back of his hair and slammed him into the fridge
She landed a left, a right and then a left
She landed a roundhouse right in his chest and a scissor punch upside his head
Broke his nose, swept a leg, he started to fall
And on his way down, she took a bow, and the lights went out

He’s on the floor like he went a round with Rocky
He didn’t know she’d been taking karate
A hundred bucks says tomorrow night
She’s got a brand new belt that’s gonna match his eye

He doesn’t dare go in the place with those bruises on his face
So he goes through the drive-thru with his sunglasses on
