Alimony alimony I work till my fingers are bloody and boney Me oh my oh goodness sake I'm paying for my mistake She calls it alimony alimony yeah you single men may think it's funny Till one of these days you're gonna wake and find you're payin' for your mistake Pom pom I walk around ragged like a low-down bum I can't afford to weigh myself or buy a stick of gum It's the same old story with a little more blues in it I'm payin' for it while someone else is usin' it Alimony alimony I thought I bought steak and it was all baloney My heart and back are both about to break from payin' for my mistake yeah [ harmonica ] Yeah I walk around ragged like a low down bum I can't afford to weigh myself or buy a stick of gum Why it's the same old story with a little more blues in it I'm payin' for it while someone else is usin' it Alimony alimony thought I bought steak and it was just baloney And every penny that I make goes to payin' for my mistake Oh yeah payin' for my mistake every Wednesday Yeah aw come on baby y'know it's your mistake too yeah They took all the furniture and everything come on Why maybe we could sorta pitch in and work it out y'know I mean I could get a third job if that's what you want I mean What about sellin' my blood y'know Shel Silverstein
