VERSE 1
I was the shy girl
Straight through high school
Never never never said a nasty word
But you broke my heart in itty bitty pieces
It’s about time, I got heard!

CHORUS
(Take a/ One) Long walk off a short pier
Say a prayer to the Heavens
Thank the Lord for your life.
Take a long walk off a short pier
Find Satan waitin’ – on the other side

VERSE 2
I been a good girl
A ‘shouldn’t’ and a ‘should’ girl
Shouldn’t do this and I can’t go there
Played by the rules but that don’t matter
In love and war, all is fair.

CHORUS
(Take a/ One) Long walk off a short pier
Say a prayer to the Heavens
Thank the Lord for your life.
Take a long walk off a short pier
Find Satan waitin’ – on the other side

— SOLO —

BRIDGE
You said you’d love me till the end of time
You said you’d love me till the stars don’t shine
You said you’d love me till your dyin’ day
Ya ain’t dead yet there’s time to take

 CHORUS
(Take a/ One) Long walk off a short pier
Say a prayer to the Heavens
Thank the Lord for your life.
Take a long walk off a short pier
Find Satan waitin’ – on the other side

CHORUS
(Take a/ One) Long walk off a short pier
Say a prayer to the Heavens
Thank the Lord for your life.
Take a long walk off a short pier
Find Satan waitin’ – on the other side

OUTRO 1
(Find) Satan waitin’ — heat acceleratin’
Satin waitin’ — you’ll be percolatin’
Satan waitin’ — no negotiatin’
Satin waitin’ — on the other side.

 — SOLO —

OUTRO 2
(Find) Satan waitin’ — heat acceleratin’
Satin waitin’ — you’ll be percolatin’
Satan waitin’ — no negotiatin’
Satin waitin’ — on the other side.
