Before He Cheats

Obviously, since I’m a delicate flower and wouldn’t survive a stint in jail, I’ve never taken a bat to anyone’s car.

I’ve contemplated it, though. I’ve thought of many complicated revenge scenarios that I’ll never be able to follow through with (for the above reason.)

Not to mention that I have more class than that.

Not saying that Ms. Underwood isn’t classy, but her song “Before He Cheats” truly expresses the anger and anguish when you find out that your significant other is messing around with some filthy…

I’ll leave it to you guys to fill in the blanks…but might I give you a few monikers for consideration:

Skank

Hussy

Hoe

Home Wrecker 

Remember…it takes two to tango and shatter lives.


Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood    2005

Right now, he’s probably slow dancing
With a bleached-blond tramp
And she’s probably getting frisky
Right now, he’s probably buying
Her some fruity little drink
‘Cause she can’t shoot whiskey
Right now, he’s probably up behind her
With a pool-stick
Showing her how to shoot a combo
And he don’t know
I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Right now, she’s probably up singing some
White-trash version of Shania karaoke
Right now, she’s probably saying “I’m drunk”
And he’s a-thinking that he’s gonna get lucky
Right now, he’s probably
Dabbing on three dollars
Worth of that bathroom Polo
Oh, and he don’t know
That I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
I might have saved a little trouble for the next girl
‘Cause the next time that he cheats
Oh, you know it won’t be on me!
No, not on me
‘Cause I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Oh, maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Oh, before he cheats
Oh

Tell Tale

Today’s song is something new (to me) that a friend recently sent me. I like it so much, I’m bumping what I initially had planned out of the lineup.


Tell Tale by Joan Armatrading  1983

And when I see you in the morning
Looking like
You never done
Anything wrong
In your life
But I saw you when
You saw me
Creeping round
Dead of night
Waiting for the light
I saw ya
Kissing all the boys
And I saw ya
Kissing all the girls
But you got obsessed
With the boys
You got obsessed
With the boys
So when you’re telling
All your lies about me
Think awhile
Before your story ends
‘Cos I’ve seen you in the parks
And alleys
Now I got things
That I can tell
Your friends

The Sign

Each day this week, I’ll be posting a song that explains my current mindset (although it rapidly changes because I’m a bit kooky like that.)

But this particular song always rings true.

How can a person like you bring me joy?


The Sign  Ace of Bass 1993

(I was 18 when this song was popular.)

I, I got a new life, you would hardly recognize me, I’m so glad
How can a person like me care for you?
I, why do I bother, when you’re not the one for me?
Oo-hoo-hoo-oo-oo
Is enough enough?
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
No one’s gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong?
I, under the pale moon, for so many years I wondered who you are
How could a person like you bring me joy?
Under the pale moon, where I see a lot of stars
Oo-hoo-hoo-oo-oo
Is enough enough?
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
No one’s gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong?
Oh, oh-oh-oh
I saw the sign and it opened up my mind
And I am happy now living without you
I’ve left you Oh, oh-oh-oh
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign
No one’s gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
I saw the sign
(I saw the sign, I saw the sign)
(I saw the sign, I saw the sign)
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
