Now the Bible tells the story about Adam`s rib
How the Lord made a woman for companionship
And the first thing she did
Was take a bite of that forbidden fruit
Well, I guess we`ll be paying till the end of time
At least that's how it is with that woman of mine
Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back

Now this is wrong and, baby, that ain`t right
And I`m huggin` tryin` to please that woman day and night
She`s never satisfied although I try to do the best that I can
Somethin`s got a change honey, I`m gonna leave
I won`t let evolution gonna make a monkey out of me
Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back

There`s been a hole in wallet and a pain in my side
Ever since I made that girl my blushing bride
Her daddy calls her angel
And her momma calls her three times a night
Her cousins on my sofa, her sister`s got my car
Her brother`s drink my liquor like my house was a bar
Oh Lord, well, I think I want my rib back

Now this is wrong and, baby, that ain`t right
And I`m huggin` tryin` to please that woman day and night
She`s never satisfied although I try to do the best that I can
Somethin`s got a change honey, I`m gonna leave
I won`t let evolution gonna make a monkey out of me
Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back

Oh Lord, I think I want my rib back
