Last night and the night before
Twenty five robbers at my door
I got up and let 'em in
But I missed 'em all with a rolling pin

They took everything I own
Like a king down from his throne
I can't let it get me down
Change my smile into a frown

I can't let it get me down
Change my smile into a frown

Just all about to send it southside
Even though I know you are tired
Now it's time for love again
Pain is found and finally went

They took everything I own
Like a king without his throne
I can't let it get me down
Change my smile into a frown

I can't let it get me down
Change my smile into a frown

All is fair in love and war
What are you think I'm here for
Time about the right just one
Then no cost and then no fun

It'll never happen again
But you bust your way in
I can't let it get me down
Change my smile into a frown

I can't let it get me down
Change my smile into a frown
