The Statler Brothers — Ruthless lyrics

Who always cooked my steaks and cooked 'em rare Ruth
When the chips were down who was always there Ruth
And to whom did I swear up and down I'd always tell the truth
E-del-o-da-la-de who in the world but Ruth
But now I'm as ruthless as can be ruthless since Ruth walked out to me
Now I had hopes that someday old Ruth would be my wife
But it looks like I'll be ruthless all my life
[ whistle ]
Who always made my world so bright and cheery ol' Ruth
Who always rubbed my back when I was weary sweet Ruth
Who used to call me every day from a telephone booth
E-del-o-da-la-de who in the world but Ruth
But now I'm as ruthless as can be ruthless since Ruth walked out to me
I used to think that me and Ruth would share a happy home
But it looks like I'll be ruthless from now on
