Edwyn Collins – Shouldn't Have Done That lyrics

I spent half the morning lying in bed
I should have quit while I was still ahead
Instead I stumbled out I took the air
I should have stayed home, should've washed my hair
Should've done that
Should've, should've
Should've done that
There is a bar wherei like to drink
I should've stopped as I passed the brink
There is a girl and she looks sublime
You should've guessed I wanna make her mine
Should've done that
One little piggy had roast beef
Another little piggy had none
One little piggy went to market
That little piggy should've stayed at home
Each time I saw her my heart would melt
I should have told her 'bout the way I felt
Instead I stumbled home, I took to bed
I have to quit while I'm still ahead
Should've done that
