Hands on a Hardbody - If She Don't Sleep Lyrics

(Don)
You tried to find a job that pays
Waiting around for better days
Life can get you down and that's a fact

But we always come up fighting, and life is plain excitin'
'Cause her and me, we got this little pact

If she don't sleep then I don't sleep

(Janis)
If he don't eat, then I don't eat

(Don)
And life is sweet with six kids almost grown

(Janis)
It's true we may not have a lot

(Don)
If I got squat, then she got squat

(Both)
But we don't have to go through it alone

(Don)
If you write her off then you'll regret it
You don't see the woman that I see
She's stronger than most people give her credit
Plus she's got her secret weapon, me

I told her
"Janis, you gotta get used to the long hours in the heat
You been sitting under the air conditioners
And she's spoiled on account I got a twenty-tonne unit on my house
Most people's only got three tonnes at the most, but me?
I got a twenty

(Both)
Twenty tonnes of air
The biggest thing you've ever seen

(Don)
It used to cool a K-Mart that went bust in Abilene

(Both)
It brings our house to twelve below and you can see your breath


(Janis)
Yeah, we found out pretty quickly
It would freeze the pen to death

(Don)
I couldn't pass the unit up
It was too good a buy
But unless she got used to this heat
I knew Janis would die

(Janis)
He knew that I would die

(Don)
At times, she stepped upside
She'd turn red as a turnip
I had to turn the heating off
So she wouldn't burn up

(Don)
If she ain't cool

(Janis)
If he ain't cool

(Don)
Then I ain't cool

(Janis)
Then I ain't cool

(Both)
You'd be a fool to do this on your own

(Don)
If she don't cry
Then I don't cry
I'll admit she's happy
So, am I
And she don't have to go through it alone

(Both)
Ooh
We don't have to go through it alone
