Billy was a small town loner Who never did dream Of ever leaving southern Arizona Or ever hearing wedding bells ring He never had a lot of luck with the ladies But he sure had a lot of good working skills Never cared about climbing any ladder He knew the way in a small cafe, found the will
He met Miss Bonnie And a little bit of her was a little too much A few movies and a few months latter The feeling got strong enough They didn? own a car So it must have been love That drove him uptown for a diamond That? when he started goin?
[Chorus] Over the line Working overtime To give her things just to hear her say she don? deserve them But he loves her and he just kept going overboard Over the limit to afford to give her things he knew she wanted Cause without her where would he be? See, it? not for him She is his only need
Ring on her finger and one on the ladder A new promotion every now and then Bonnie worked until she couldn? tie her apron Then stayed at home and had the first of two children And my, how the time did fly The babies grew up and moved away Left 'em sitting on the front porch rocking And Billy watching Bonnie? hair turn gray
And every once in a while you could see him get up And he's head downtown Cause he heard about something she wanted And it just had to be found Didn't matter how simple or how much It was love And, boy, ain't that love just something When it? strong enough to keep a man going?
Over the line Working overtime She is his only need His only need Overboard Over the limit Just for her She is his only need His only need
