Verse 1
This ain't no battle honey, this ain't no fight.
How come you take it so hard when I stay out all night?
If I take a drink, is that against the law?
And if I have a good time, do you call that an act of war?

Verse 2

Well, you'd better believe it boy - this house is your home.
I didn't build it up for you to live here on my own.
And if you think it's easy to forget about me -
you'd better think twice - you'd better believe it's an act of war.

Verse 3

Well I'm a man of convenience - I work a long hard day.
After twelve long hours, ain't I got the right to   play?
If living together is getting in the way 
Huh - then I call that an act of war.

Verse 4

Well if that's your game then honey two can play.
I'm going on the town tonight and have some fun my  way.
Ain't no way baby this girl's gonna stay.
I call it, I call it an act of war.


We're living on the front line you and me.
Fighting on this battleground of misery.
Oh, go ahead, bring on your artillery and we'll make this an act of war.
Give it all you've got 'cause I'm all dug in.

Keep the punches coming I can take them on the chin.
Winner takes all, let the best man win - and we call it an act of war.
And it looks like time - ain't been on our side.
If we could turn the clock back - we might survive this act of war.
