Mental cruelty that's what I heard her say
Mental cruelty to the judge that day
I sat there in silence so she could be free
And listened to her lying words mental cruelty
Your Honor, since our marriage my life's not been the same
Why I'm missing out on all the fun and he's the one to blame
There's never any excitement now the way there used to be
And sharing his way of life is mental cruelty
Mental cruelty that's what I heard her say
Mental cruelty to the judge that day
I sat there in silence so she could be free
And listened to her lying words mental cruelty
Divorces have been granted for many different things
Even when there's not a reason and no one can be blamed
With only two little words she's on her merry way
Yes all a woman has to claim is mental cruelty
Mental cruelty that's what I heard her say
Mental cruelty to the judge that day
I sat there in silence so she could be free
And listened to her lying words mental cruelty
