You act like a prima donna
Playing so hard to get
Sittin’ so cool and nonchalant
Draggin’ on a cigarette
You keep a wall all around ya
I’ll get through some day
I want your love, baby
Push, don’t shove
Gonna chip that stone away

Chip away
Chip away at the stone
I won’t stop until your love is my very own
Chip away
That’s what I’m gonna do
Sweet little mama
I wanna get next to you

You stand like a marble statue
Trying to look so hard
All decked out in your antique dress
While the boys all promenade
Even a rock will crumble
If you strike it night and day
If hammer I must, I’m gonna get through your crust
Gonna chip that stone away

Chip away
Chip away at the stone
I won’t stop until your love is my very own
Chip away
That’s what I’m gonna do
Sweet little mama
I wanna get next to you

Chip away
Chip away at the stone
Honey, I won’t stop until your love is my very own
Chip away
That’s what I’m wanna do
Sweet little mama
I wanna get next to you

Yes I do, yes I do

Chip away, chip away, at the stone
Chip away, chip away, at the stone

I won’t stop
I won’t stop
I won’t stop
I won’t stop
I won’t stop
I won’t stop

Chip it
I’m gonna nip it, all night long
