about

Words and music by Mike Surber

lyrics

She's so wasted, side to side
Carrying on as if the devil died
She talks of Jesus and getting high
But she swears to me she's good to drive
And in the morning she says "Who are you?
Wait - I meant how are you? And um... are those new shoes?
I'll make you breakfast in exchange for the blues"
How could I refuse?

And there's an honest man with a liar's plan
He's got blood on his lips but clean, clean hands
He says "Baby, don't you understand?"
But you don't

This one's been dancing from noon to nine
She heard some stories in the car that made it all seem fine
She ask permission to demand her rights from another guy
And he sure don't mind
But I'm on a mission to make her my girl
And she's on a mission to discover just how big this world is
"One is good, two must be better" she's been told
This land's for rent; It has yet to be sold

And so he finally came across this lovely dame
Trouble is, she keeps on beating him at his own game
She says "Boy, I'm sure you'll understand"
But you don't
