Well, I been spending my life lookin' for a shoulder
To rest my head when the nights get colder.
But the days are getting longer and I'm getting older.
Been a long time working it out.

[Chorus]
I've been a long time workin' it out
I've been a long time workin' it out
I've been a long time workin' it out
I've been a long time workin' it out

Now I got a little woman scrub my floor.
Right down the road I got me two or three more.
None of 'em knows about the one next door.
I been a long time working that out!

[Chorus]

Well, it was late one night when I stole a little money.
Bought a couple o' things and then I give them to my honey.
The Judge said, "Boy, if you think that's funny,
You got a long time workin' this out!"

[Chorus]

Yeah , well I look all around me and what do I see?
The whole wide world got trouble like me.
Between the taxes, the missus and the deep blue sea,
We'll be a long time working it out.

[Chorus]
