‘Baby You’re Not Good Enough Now’


All those nights I spent stayin’ up

To help you in the door when you couldn’t walk,

Drunk and high and covered with other women’s perfume.

Cryin’ with your mom cause you’re 30 and you won’t work,

Paying the rent and takin’ care of myself like a man,

Who was your buddy cause buddy I loved YOU.

The time you lost your teeth in a cycle wreck,

Jaws wired shut and you couldn’t talk,

And sported a scar years later for gals to view

While you played your guitar and said that you got it in a knife fight,

While I watched them throw thier underwear at your feet and flash free meat,

And the cops came and shut the party down: I loved you!

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

I remember the day he brought her home,

Ten years younger …blue eyed long blond legged,

Gal with an story and an attitude…

That all men should fall at her feet like axed trees,

Telling me finally she wanted you and I let you go ’cause you

Said you loved her and I loved you so I walked right out that door….

There wasn’t any ‘You and me’ anymore….

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

Now the years have gone and that girls still haunts me,

Tellin’ me I’m nuthin’ and her smile still taunts me,

Men who have come and gone cause they love me

Only because I am like a good buddy,

Kinda get used to being second, kinda get used to the play,

Til one day comes and you don’t believe it anymore…any day…

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

She ruined me for any man that might love me,

Cause I can’t ever really believe that anyone else might ever want me,

I’m just the gal they come cryin’ too when she leaves them flat on the lovers mat,

When the tussle is over they are sad and they come to me and they ask for love

and I give what I got but honey it ain’t much…..

…..

……

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”
