Better Things To Do

Don’t tell me the reason that you’re calling
Is to see if I’m all right since you’ve been gone
‘Cause I know you and I know why we’re talking
You’re wanting me to say I’m barely hanging on
Well, maybe that was true for a night or two
But now, I got better things to do

[Chorus:]
I could wash my car in the rain
Change my new guitar strings
Mow the yard just the same as I did yesterday
I don’t need to waste my time crying over you
I got better things to do

Maybe when I don’t have so much going
Or quite so many irons in the fire
I’ll take the time to miss you like you’re hoping
But now, I can’t put forth the effort it requires
Well, I’d love to talk to you, but then, I’d miss Donahue
That’s right, I got better things to do

[Repeat Chorus]

Check the air in my tires
Straighten my stereo wires
Count the stars in the sky or just get on with my life
I don’t need to waste my time crying over you
I got better things to do
I got better things to do

When Boy Meets Girl

First, it’s baseball, arcades in the mall
Skipping out of study hall to hang with the guys
Then, it’s fast cars, rock and roll guitars
Lighting up behind the barn and not knowing why

But his life is about to change
He’s never gonna be the same
And he’ll be living in a different world
When boy meets girl

One smile, one look – he’s nearly on the hook
Got it bad and feeling good all over inside
He ain’t got a clue what he’s going through
But he’s going to – just give him time

‘Cause his life is about to change
He’s never gonna be the same
He’ll be living in a diffferent world
When boy meets girl

[Bridge:]
He never polished his boots before
Never thought about what he wore
Never knew he could feel like that
Now there ain’t no way he can ever go back

Oh yeah, his life is about to change
He ain’t never gonna be the same
And he’ll be living in a different world
When boy meets girl

His life is about to change
He ain’t never gonna be the same
He’ll be living in a different world
When boy meets girl….

If I Were You

You were standin’ at my front door
When I came home tonight
And I could tell by the look you gave me
You were needin’ my advice
You say you want more out of life than he can give you
As a tear rolls down your face
But girl, I’ve seen the way he looks at you
And I know someone who’d gladly take your place.

[Chorus:]
If I were you
I’d run back home tonight
Tell him everything’s all right
Yeah, I know what I’d do
If I were you
I’d never let him go
I’d have someone to hold
My whole life through.

If I were you.

You shouldn’t think you’re missin’ out on something
Because you wear a wedding band
‘Cause I can’t seem to find somebody
Who wants more than just a one night stand
You know this single life I’m livin’
Ain’t all it’s cracked up to be
So you’ve come to the wrong place
If what you want is sympathy.

[Chorus:]
If I were you
I’d run back home tonight
Tell him everything’s all right
Yeah, I know what I’d do
If I were you
I’d never let him go
I’d have someone to hold
My whole life through.

[Chorus:]
If I were you
I’d run back home tonight
Tell him everything’s all right
Yeah, I know what I’d do
If I were you
I’d never let him go
I’d have someone to hold
My whole life through.

If I were you…

Poor, Poor Pitiful Me

Well, I lay my head on the railroad track
Waitin’ on the “double e”
But the train don’t run through here no more
Poor, poor pitiful me!

[Chorus]

Poor, poor pitiful me!
Poor, poor pitiful me!
Oh, these boys won’t let me be
Lord have mercy on me!
Woe, woe is me!

Well, I met a man out in Hollywood
And I ain’t namin’ names
But he really worked me over good
Just like Jesse James

Yes, he really worked me over good
He was a credit to his gender
He put me through some changes
Lord, sorta like a waring blender

[Repeat Chorus]

Well, I met a boy in the Vieux-Carres
Down in Yokahoma
He picked me up and he threw me down
Sayin’, “please don’t hurt me, mama”

[Repeat Chorus]

Poor, poor pitiful me!
Poor, poor pitiful me…

Emotional Girl

I’ve been looking at you looking me
Bet you’re thinking that what you get
Is what you see
But underneath this cool exterior
A raging river flows
So before you get any nearer
I better let you know.

[Chorus:]
I’m an emotional girl
I can’t help myself
Sometimes I laugh
Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I do both and I don’t know why
I got a Passionate heart
And that’s just the way things are
You and me could give it a whirl
But I’m warning you, boy
I’m an emotional girl.

I like music that’s loud and lights down low
I like driving my car too fast
And dancing slow
Some folks may say I’m too extreme
‘Cause I can’t stop once I start
But I never could do anything
With half my heart.

[Chorus:]
I’m an emotional girl
I can’t help myself
Sometimes I laugh
Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I do both and I don’t know why
I got a Passionate heart
And that’s just the way things are
You and me could give it a whirl
But I’m warning you, boy
I’m an emotional girl.

[Instrumental]

[Chorus:]
I’m an emotional girl
I can’t help myself
Sometimes I laugh
Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I do both and I don’t know why
I got a Passionate heart
And that’s just the way things are
You and me could give it a whirl
But I’m warning you, boy
I’m an emotional girl.

You and me could give it a whirl
But I’m warning you, boy
I’m an emotional girl…

Now That I Found You

How can I believe
That my heart would find someone like you
You see me, the real me
No in bewteens, I had nowhere to hide
You took away the walls around me
Made me feel safe to share my truth

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you
Now that I found you

I do believe we’re meant to be
Our chemistry will last forever
And through the years
We’ll see some tears
We’ll conquer fears
And together we will grow
Looking in your eyes
They tell me
I no longer have to feel alone

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you
Now that I found you

You see me, the real me
You believe in me

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you
Now that I found you

You're Easy On The Eyes

Shoulda known it was you knocking on my door
At half past a heartache at quarter to four
Were you starting to worry I was finally getting over you
I almost forgot you looked so fine
If you told me some lies, it would be like old times
Just getting to see you is almost worth the things you do

[Chorus]
You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

I got to admit to you got a smile
That really reeled me in for awhile
But it ain’t funny, honey, what you put me through
So why don’t you send me your photograph
It’d hurt a lot less than taking you back
Then I could still have my favorite part of you

[Repeat Chorus Twice]
Cause you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

Now I realize
You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

Everytime I Cry

You call and wake me up, the way you always do
Say you miss me and you’re sorry, deja vu
You push the button in the heart you know so well
The wall starts coming down then I remind myself

Everytime I think you might have changed
Put aside the anger and the blame
Make myself believe that there’s a way to work it out
Everytime you say let’s try again
Begging me to let you back in
Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

If only promises could just erase the past
I could open up my heart enough to take you back
But we’ve been down that road
Time and time again
I’ve learned the hard way how the story always ends

Everytime I think you might have changed
Put aside the anger and the blame
Make myself believe that there’s a way to work it out
Everytime you say let’s try again
Begging me to let you back in
Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

Everytime I think you might have changed
Put aside the anger and the blame
Make myself believe that there’s a way to work it out
Everytime you say let’s try again
Begging me to let you back in
Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

Everytime I do
Everytime you lie
Everytime I cry

A Little Gasoline

Throwing pictures out the window
Scattered by the way the wind blows
Bye Bye Baby , that’s the last I’ll see of you
Shoebox full of old love letters
I’ll tear each one till I feel better
And I won’t look back, cause I don’t like the view

[Chorus:]
What my heart needs now is rest
So I’m packing up and I’m headed west
My mind’s made up, I’ll put it to the test
Pushing myself and this old maching
Burning fumes and what’s left of my dreams
Let ’em go cause I don’t need no strings
Just give me a road and a Little Gasoline

We talked in circles ’til the words ran out
And it all came down to an angry shout
Before I knew it I was in third gear and gone
Well this had been coming for a long, long time
If I said I’m sorry, well I’d be lying
If you think I’ll never make it, well you’d be wrong

[Chorus: (Repeat twice)]
What my heart needs now is rest
So I’m packing up and I’m headed west
My mind’s made up, I’ll put it to the test
Pushing myself and this old machine
Burning fumes and what’s left of my dreams
Let ’em go cause I don’t need no strings
Just give me a road and a Little Gasoline

Just give me a road and a Little Gasoline.

I Just Wanna Be Mad

Last night we went to bed not talking
Cause we already said to much
I face the wall you faced the window
Bound and determined not to touch

We’ve been married 7 years now
Some days if feels like 21
I’m still mad at you this morning
Coffee’s ready if you want some
I’ve been up since 5
Thinking about me and you
And I’ve got to tell you
The conclusion I’ve come to

[Chorus]
I’ll never leave, I’ll never stray
My love for you will never change
But I ain’t ready to make up or get around to that
I think I’m right I think your wrong
I’ll probably give in before long
Please don’t make me smile
I just want to be mad for awhile

For now you might as well forget it
Don’t run your fingers through my hair
Yeah that’s right I’m being stubborn
No I don’t want to go back upstairs
I’m going to leave for work
Without a goodbye kiss
But as I’m driving off
Just remember this

[Chorus twice]

I just want to be mad for awhile
I just want to be mad for awhile
I just want to be mad for awhile

I Wanna Do It All

I’m sitting in traffic
For the 5th year in a row
Wasting my time
Just to get
Where I don’t even wanna go
I started jotting things down
On a krispy kreme sack
Everything I’d do
If I could leave this place
And never look back

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I want to drink tequila
Down in Tijuana
Say why not
When somebody says
Hey do you wanna
I wanna get my heart broke
Once or twice
Settle down with the love of my life
Rock little babies to sleep at night

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I wanna spend a day
Every now and then
Just doin what I want to do
When I wanna do it
Anytime I wanna do it

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankee’s play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law

I wanna do it all
See Niagara falls
Fight city hall
Feel good in my skin
Beating the odds
With my back to the wall
Try to rob Peter
Without paying Paul
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all

Girls Lie Too

So she can’t go out tonight again
Her sister’s sick, she’s gotta baby-sit
Yeah, that sounds like a pretty good excuse
Now you didn’t hear any of this from me
But things aren’t always what they seem
Brace yourself, this may come as a shock to you

Girls lie, too
We don’t care how much money you make
What you drive or what you weigh
Size don’t matter anyway
Girls lie, too
Don’t think you’re the only ones
Who bend it, break it, stretch it some
We learn from you
Girls lie, too

We can’t wait to hear about your round of golf
We love to see deer heads hanging on the wall
And we like Hooter’s for their hotwings too
Other guys never cross our minds
We don’t wonder what it might be like
How could it be any better than it is with you

[Repeat Chorus]

Yeah, girls lie, too
We always forgive and forget
The cards and flowers you never sent
Will never be brought up again
Girls lie, too
Old gray sweatpants turn us on
We like your friends and we love your mom
And that’s the truth
Girls lie, too
Yeah that’s the truth
Girls lie, too

No, we don’t care how much hair you have
Yeah, that looks good
Comb it over like that

One Of The Guys

Hood up, bent over that carborator
I skinned my knuckle
Damn that hurt
Got a 6 pack chillin’ on ice for later
And grease all over my white t-shirt

My brother taught me how
To throw a curve ball
The cheerleadin’ thing never felt quite right
When it comes to high fashion
I hit a brick wall
This girl’s just one of the guys

You can dress me up
But it won’t change
The way i walk against the grain
I can rock your world
And if my mood is right
You can take me home
But i’m gonna drive
’cause this girls just one of the guys

I can throw darts
Talk about fishin’
Tell a dirty joke
And watch nascar
I can help you with your love life
And tell you ’bout women
Drink you under the table
At your favorite bar

You can dress me up
But it won’t change
The way i walk against the grain
I can rock your world
And if my mood is right
You can take me home
But i’m gonna drive
’cause this girls just one of the guys

I’m still a lady
Lookin’ for the right man
But he’s gotta take me
Just the way i am

’cause you can dress me up
But it won’t change
The way i walk against the grain
I can rock your world
And if my mood is right
After the game on monday night
’cause this girl’s just one of the guys
Yeah this girl’s just one of the guys

Hey… Woa!

No Fear

I want a road stretching out before me
I want a radio in my ear
I want a full tank of absolution
No fear
I want a rainstorm to pull me over
Then a sky that begins to clear
Towards the truest of destinations
No fear

I used to hit every wall there was
I used to run away from love
All I ever wanted was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I had to have faith I’d find
No fear

I want the world to just keep on turning
I want the dawn in my rear view mirror
I want to hear my own voice singing
No fear
And when I need two arms around me
And theres no one near
When I’m alone let the only sound be
No fear

I used to hit every wall there was
I used to run away from love
All I ever wanted was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I had to have faith I’d find
No fear

I want peace, Love and Understanding
A stogie and an ice-cold beer
Don’t want to live afraid of dying
I used to hit every wall there was
I used to run away from love
All I ever wanted was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I used to stay up all night long
Wondering what I was doing wrong
All I ever needed was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I had to have faith I’d find
No fear
