I Always Thought She'd Leave Me for a Guy
I ALWAYS THOUGHT SHE'D LEAVE ME FOR A GUY

I'm drinkin' whiskey
I'm drinkin' beer
I'm drinkin' Night Train
and whatever you got here

See, I'm on a bender
'Cause now I offend her
She said: RETURN TO SENDER

I knew she got the rovin' eye
But I always thought she'd leave me for a guy

Don't tell me what you're thinkin'
Just let me sit here drinkin'
And let everything sink in.

Here I am with the magic touch
But to her, it weren't much
What don't I have that she can get from that butch?

CRIES

Don't tell me, “Last Call”
If I can still crawl
Give me a high-ball
And Harvey bang the wall

I'm on a root-toot
I'm getting' right tight
'Cause she gave me the pink slip tonight

I knew she got the rovin' eye
But I always thought she'd leave me for a guy

Don't tell me what you're thinkin'
Just let me sit here drinkin'
And let everything sink in.

She used to think I was hot
But after 25 years I'm not
Hey, man? Can I sleep on your cot?

V/O:

Yeah, I got a profession, what is it to you?
You give me that bottle, I show you what I can do.
What you mean, you not give me no more?
I'm gonna get up, WHOOOO, what am I doin' on the floor?
Where am I? Who am I? What am I?
