She told me not to step on the cracks
I told her not to fuss and relax
Pretty little thing stopped me in my tracks
But now she sleeps with one eye open
But that’s the price she’ll pay

I took a knife and cut out her eye
I took it home and watched it wither and die
Well, she’s lucky that I didn’t slip her a smile
That’s why she sleeps with one eye open
But that’s the price she’ll pay

I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie.”
I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
I’ll cut your little heart out 'cause you made me cry.”

I slipped my hand under her skirt
I said, “Don’t worry, oh, it’s not gonna hurt.
Oh, my reputation’s kinda clouded with dirt
That’s why you sleep with one eye open
But that’s the price you’ll pay.”

I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie.”
I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
I’ll cut your little heart out 'cause you made me cry.”

You made me cry
You made me cry
You made me cry

I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie.”
I said, “Girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie.”

I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie.”
I said, “Hey, girl with one eye
I’ll cut your little heart out 'cause you made me cry.”
