lyrics

It's peaches in the summer and apples in fall
It's peaches in the summer and apples in fall
But winter can take so frightfully long
I'm back with the ball and chain

As soon as I'm up I'm going all day
As soon as I'm up I'm going all day
I gotta grunt while she gets to play
I'm back with the ball and chain

If she's staying in, then I'm going down
She's staying in, then I'm going down
When I'm dead asleep then she hits the town
I'm back with the ball and chain

Every time I wake up I'm still at home
Every time I wake up I'm still at home
Well where could I go, how long could I roam
When I've got the shackles on?

The train blows a whistle at four on the clock
The train blows a whistle at four on the clock
But I'll never go 'cause it never stops
And I'm back with

Peaches in the summer and apples in fall
Peaches in the summer and apples in fall
But winter can take so frightfully long
I'm back with the ball and chain

Back with the ball and chain
Back with the ball and chain
Back with the ball and chain
