Be A Man
Hey! yeah, yeah. Uh huh.
Bustin' ass all day
Just to put food on the table.
And I always will for as long as I am able.
Done all I could,
Ev'rything that a man should do.
Still they refuse to call me,
Call me what I am. Hey!
Did It For The Money
Down on the corner, walkin' the streets.
She smiles for ev'ryone she meets.
He's not a man, no, he's just another trick.
She'd do it all just to get that fix.
Did you do it for love?
Did you do it in the name of love?
No, it ain't love she's gonna find.
She's got just one thing on her mind:
Money. She did, she did it for the money.
Took a shot to the chin.
Looks like you just can't win
In this do or die situation.
And it's harder than it seems
To survive, keep alive and make your dreams,
Make your dreams all come true.
You gotta, you gotta give it your best shot.
Give it ev'rything you got.
Oh, you gotta hang tough.
With a snap in her style and a click in her heels.
In seconds flat my heart she could steal.
Lookin' ev'ry bit of a where it's at.
More like breakfast, lunch and dinner, as a matter of fact.
Mm. There she stood in living color, standin' all alone.
So I walked up to her, I say, "How do you do?"
And she said, "I don't".
Lady Luck took a walk.
When all I wanted was some company.
Lazy Days, Crazy Nights
I'm feelin' so much better.
But not quite feelin' fine.
Now, I've got to get my shit together,
Still. Little bit closer to the line.
But I love those lazy days and crazy nights.
It's my way, it's my life.
I love those lazy days and crazy nights.
I'm doin' fine right here on borrowed time.
So you think that it's over,
That your love has fin'lly reached the end.
Any time you call, night or day,
I'll be right there for you if you need a friend.
It's gonna take a little time.
Time is sure to mend your broken heart.
Don't you even worry, pretty darlin'.
I know you'll find love again. Yeah.
(Keith, Wheat, Hannon)
Hold me close now, hold me tight, don't let go of me tonight
You're all I want, you're all I need
Hold me close now, hold me tight, and don't let go of me tonight
Sweet paradise, yeah
How I love all of those crazy little things you've said and done for me
You're the one for me
Darlin', dry your eyes, I can't stand to see you cry
It's the same old song and dance,
You're askin' me for a second chance.
I don't care, baby, what you say,
All I wanna do is gotta get away.
Been too many times callin' out your name,
You promised me, but you never came.
Was it, baby, all a game to you? Yeah.
After all the things that I've done for you,
Say your love, your love, could not be true.
