Song Meaning
Verse 1
In this world, if you read the papers, darling,
You know everybody's fighting with each other
You got no one you can count on, dear,
Not even your own brother
So if someone comes along,
He gonna give you love and affection,
Verse 2
I'd say get it while you can, yeah,
Honey, get it while you can, yeah,
Honey, grab it while you can,
Don't you turn your back on love, no, no, no
Verse 3
When you're loving somebody, baby,
You're taking a gamble against some sorrow
But who knows, baby,
'Cause we may not be here tomorrow
And if anybody comes along,
He gonna give you love and affection,
Verse 4
I'd say get it while you can, yeah!
Honey, grab it when you're gonna need it!
Yeah hey, hold it while you can,
Don't you turn your sweet back on love,
No no no, no no no no no!
Verse 5
Ah! Once I had me a man,
But I didn't know enough at the time
To count my blessings, no no,
But I wish he could see me crying today,
'Cause his love don't feel to listen
And if anybody comes along,
He gonna give me love and affection,
Yeah, hey!, Hey! Yeah! Hey!

Get it, need it, want it, hold it,
Get it, squeeze it, love it, touch it,
Use it, need it, want it, get it,
Need it, want it, hold it,

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, daddy, you'll be sorry,
No, no, no, no!
Verse 9
Why, thank you! I don't smoke
I just don't sleep, man, that's the trouble
I gotta sleep sometime
There's too much happening, why sleep, man?
I might miss a party

Ball and Chain! Ball and Chain! Ball and Chain
Verse 11
Stay short tonight man, shorten it, shorten it, shorten it
Verse 12
Three, four!
