Blame It All On Me

Blame It All On Me

You have a funny way of showing love
But that’s okay I’ve had enough
I don’t need your love
Cause you never once loved me

You have a funny way of saying goodbye
But this time I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Because you never shed a tear for me

I can guarantee you tonight
That you’re gonna cry
You will feel it in your selfish heart
And you won’t face the reasons why
Because you know when I’m gone
You will blame it all on me

Life has a funny way
It can be so unkind
Beautiful scenery’s
Remember all the pictures we took
Pictures of memories

I can guarantee you tonight
That I will cry
I will feel it in my broken heart
But in time there’ll be no more tears
You will know when I’m gone
You’re heart will cry for me
It’ll be too late
I’ll be gone
You can blame it all on me

It’ll be too late
I’ll be gone
You can blame it all on me

[Lyrics]


Love Of My Life

Love Of My Life

My baby’s sweet and she’s so fine
I can’t believe that she’s all mine
She’s so wonderful, oh so beautiful
Mmmmm that’s right

My baby brings out the best in me
Without her love I wouldn’t believe
That life is wonderful, oh so beautiful
Mmmmm I’m a loving life

Better late than never
I will always remember
The way I feel inside
This heart of mine
Cause nothing lasts forever
We will always be together
Let your love shine bright
Mmmmm she’s the love of my life

Life hasn’t always been this way
I was always blind in a selfish way
It’s not that I didn’t care
I just didn’t know any other way
Control of this world has gone crazy

Mmmmm just crazy

Better late than never
I will always remember
The way I feel inside
This heart of mine
Cause nothing lasts forever
We will always be together
Let your love shine bright
Mmmmm she’s the love of my life
Mmmmm that’s right

Better late than never
I will always remember
The way I feel inside
This heart of mine
Nothing lasts forever
We will always be together
Let your love shine bright
Mmmmm she’s the love of my life
Mmmmm that’s right

My baby’s sweet and she’s so fine
I can’t believe that she’s all mine
She’s so wonderful, oh so beautiful

Mmmmm - that’s right

Me N' Buddy

Me N' Buddy

Me and a buddy we went out last night
We did a bit of drinking and we got into a fight
Buddy got a black eye, I got a busted tooth

She said tell me no lies, just tell me the truth
I said, “Honey, my baby, that’s legit
And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it

I got outta bed, oh my aching head
I looked around but eyes were burning red
Even though that I couldn’t see
I knew my baby wasn’t here with me

Just like Elmer Fudd would say,
“Oh woh woh always me”
Oh woh woh woh always me
Oh woh woh woh always me
Just like Elmer Fudd would say,
“Oh woh woh always me”

She came through the door about a quarter to four
I said, “Hey little honey what’d you do that for”?
She said her and a friend had a few drinks
And my truck broke down by the road again

She said, “Honey, my baby, that’s legit
And that’s her story and she’s sticking to it.

Oh woh woh woh always me
Oh woh woh woh always me
Just like Elmer Fudd would say,
“Oh woh woh always me”

[Lyrics]


Mizery

Mizery

I got a dog outside and she’s got a high pitched howl
I got a chick-a-dee looking out the window chirping, “Let me out”
I got a red nosed staffy in the kitchen just sniffing around

Well, I had a pretty lady but she sure drove me crazy
First she’d yell at me and say, “How do you plead”?
And I’d say, “Guilty, I guess”
But, oh well, that ain’t perfect harmony
And that ain’t for me

Cause I want to be free
I don’t want your mizery
I just want to be me
Yet so happy
No more knocking me downs
Get on my feet and get the hell out
No more, baby

I got a 1979 Ford outside
Painted buckskin brown
like the old horse I used to ride
I put the tailgate down
Everybody lets go for a ride
Let’s get on out of here

Cause I want to be free
I don’t want your mizery
I just want to be me
Yet so happy
No more knocking me downs
Get on my feet and get the hell out
Uh Uh

Cause I want to be free
I don’t want your mizery
I just want to be me
Yet so happy
No more knocking me downs
Get on my feet
And get the hell out

No more knocking me downs
Get on my feet
And get the hell out
