Three women 
in thirty days 
tell me seriously 
our dating days 
are over and done 
are dead and gone 
it seems that no matter how much I drink 
I seem to still stay sober 
it seems that no matter how young I am 
I seem to still feel older 
three men are going to hell 
thirty women are going to jail 
Jonah swore he swallowed the whale 
thirty thirsty women 
three hundred women in three hours
told me boy forget the flowers 
Christ told a man called 1 legion 
come into the fold and start preachin' 
your devil days are over and gone 
your weary days are dead and done 
your happiness has begun
