Personally, carelessly cutting me and laughing while I’m bleeding is a deal-breaker.

Well, Wikipedia implies that these scary traits in a partner were actually desirable traits in a manager, and Billy had written this song for his then-wife/manager Elizabeth. Perhaps the wounding with her eyes and stealing like a thief also applied to their marriage, too, since, five years after releasing the song, he divorced her, and, I imagine she got a considerable settlement.
The Wikipedia article also explains why the song charted in three different decades in various countries.
I’m excited to say that my rating is super-close to the Top 2000 rating on the Dutch website radio2.nl. The Dutch, I’m finding, have terrific taste in music!
