As recorded by LEODIE JACKSON: Oh, that naggin' wife of mine She nags at me all the time When I come home from work She calls me a dirty jerk Oh, that naggin' wife of mine Then I say, "Sweetheart, darlin' I had to work overtime The boss was short of men So I had to lend a hand" Oh, that naggin' wife of mine (Instrumental Break) Then she says, "I know you're lyin' You've been out with a redhead or a blonde And don't try to make me think That you haven't had a drink" Oh, that naggin' wife of mine (Instrumental Break) Oh, brother, woe is me Gosh, how I get the third degree She nags with all her might >From mornin' until night Oh, that naggin' wife of mine (Instrumental Break) She even haunts me in my sleep I can't resist her, she's so sweet Got a very strong back But I'm weak in my mind Oh, that naggin' wife of mine ******************** As recorded by FAIRLEY HOLDEN with songwriting credited to Fowler & Crowe: Oh, that naggin' wife of mine She nags at me all the time When I come home at night She's ready for a fight Oh, that naggin' wife of mine I says, "Darlin', can't you wait It's not my fault that I am late When overtime I have to work Please don't call me a no-good jerk" Oh, that naggin' wife of mine (Instrumental Break) Then she said, "You're late again" She knew just where I had been That I had taken out That rehead gadabout Oh, that naggin' wife of mine Then she said, "I ain't slept a wink I know that you have had a drink I smell it on your breath I'm a-gonna beat you half to death" Oh, that naggin' wife of mine (Instrumental Break) She can lay it on you bad When I get home, she starts to fret She nags with all her might Then boo-hoo-hoos the night Oh, that naggin' wife of mine She is with me in my dreams All I do is work, it seems My back is strong and fine But I'm losin' my mind Oh, that naggin' wife of mine (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
