Forget about my crazy days
Forget about my checkered past
What's all this interrogatin'?
Baby, forget about that

You don't wanna ask no questions
You don't know the answers too
You might wish that I was lying
Once you heard the brutal truth
I can think a thousand things I'd rather do with you

In the time that it would take me to explain the way I am
Honey, I could be well on my way to bein' your new man
We could waste the day away diggin' up my buried bones
You could turn it up and shake it, shake it all night long

I could rationalize and apologize
And justify my way right in your door
But in the time that it would take me to tell you where I've been
Honey, I could take you places you ain't never been before

Yeah come on girl, now don't you judge me
Come on girl, cut me some slack
Once I get you where I'm goin'
Baby, you'll come on back

You and me are gas and matches
You and me could take this town
Light it up and get her smokin'
You and me could burn it down
You could get all hung up on
How much I've been around

In the time that it would take me to explain the way I am
Honey, I could be well on my way to bein' your new man
We could waste the day away diggin' up my buried bones
You could turn it up and shake it, shake it all night long

I could rationalize and apologize
And justify my way right in your door
But in the time that it would take me to tell you where I've been
Honey, I could take you places you ain't never been before

Yeah, in the time that it would take me to explain the way I am
I could be well on my way to bein' your new man
We could waste the day away diggin' up my buried bones
You could turn it up and shake it, shake it all night long

I could rationalize and apologize
And justify my way right in your door
But in the time that it would take me to tell you where I've been
Honey, I could take you places you ain't never been before
