        Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh. {4 times} Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.

Well I'm work shy. I'm wild-eyed - so shut that door when the baby cries.
And keep me well fed, give me warm bread. 
Lay my body on a feather bed  and spoil me - Angeline.
Get to work when the whistle screams - Angeline.

Maybe someday, some way - somewhere in the future there's more pay.
Give me more cash. Bring me sour mash.
Peel me a grape and fetch my stash and bite me - Angeline.
Let me use you like a sex machine - Angeline.

You've got to swing that hammer, punch that card.
Angeline I love you when you work so hard.
Swing that hammer and sew my jeans.
Angeline just loves it when I treat her mean.

Well I talk tough. I act rough. Lay still honey I can't get enough.
Keep your nose clean. Let me be.   
On your knees when you speak to me and trust me - Angeline.
Talk real dirty and I'll make you scream - Angeline.
