In My Next Life

In my next life I won’t cuss so much
I won’t ever touch that first cigarette
In my next life I’ll stay away from bad boys
I’ll listen to that voice inside of my head
I won’t wake up and look in the mirror wondering what I did last night

But in this life I want to have a good time
I wanna live fast
Hit it as hard as anybody has
‘Til they turn out the lights
If I get to come back I promise you that I’m gunna walk a straighter line
In my next life

I’ll keep my shirt on when i’m at Mardi Gras
Gettin’ loose and free
In my next life I won’t do body shots
I won’t think i’ve got to try everything
I’m gunna be a little angel who gets her kicks flying right

But in this life I want to have a good time
I wanna live fast
Hit it as hard as anybody has
‘Til they turn out the lights
If I get to come back I promise you that I’m gunna walk a straighter line
In my next life

But in this life I want to have a good time
I wanna live fast
Hit it as hard as anybody has
Til’ they turn out the lights
If I get to come back I promise you that I’m gunna walk a straighter line
In my next life

I’ll keep my shirt on when i’m at Mardi Gras
If I come back…

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

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

Medley (Emotional Girl / If I Were You / A Little Gasoline / When Boy Meets Girl)
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

Dirty Girl

Four wheels churning up a fresh green pasture,
throwing mud pies everywhere.
I’m beside you yellin faster faster,
wind whippin through my tangled hair and you know, you know, there’s nothin like it in the world.

when your out there underneath the sun
and I’m a dirty girl,
i like it when we get cleaned up on Sunday,
feel my skin against a string of pearls
and when we hang out it’s, it’s just a fun day,
you know i love it when i get to be a dirty girl

You’ll be workin on that El Camino,
bustin knuckles with a monkey wrench,
i’ll come sneakin up and whisper real low
what you really needs a 3/16ths,
and you know that there’s nothin like it in the world,

when were underneath the hood and i’m a dirty girl
I like it when we get cleaned up on Sunday,
feel my skin against a string of pearls
or when we hang out it’s,
it’s just a fun day you know
i love it when i get to be a dirty girl

and you know, you know that there’s nothin like it in the world,
it might be axle grease and mississippi mud
but when you touch my cheek and leave a little smudge
I’LL BE YOUR DIRTY GIRL

i like it when we get cleaned up on Sunday,
feel my skin against a string of pearls
or when we hang out it’s,
it’s just a fun day
you know i love it when i get to be a dirty,
get to be a dirty girl

I get to be a dirty girl

Now That I Found You

how can I
believe that my
heart would find
someone like you
You see
the real me
no in-betweens
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 holdin’ nothin’ 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
together we will grow
Lookin’ 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 holdin’ nothin’ 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 holdin’ nothin’ 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

Love Me Like a Man
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

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…

Girls Lie Too / Outro

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 hot wings, 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?

Girls lie, too
We don’t care how much money you make
Or 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

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
*growl*

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 (I want to do it all)
Anytime I wanna do it (I want to do it all)

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
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
