I bought you some flowers and you just looked at me
I bought you some earrings and you just went to sleep
I said let's go to Vegas but you don't gamble or drink
With all this passion whirlin' around it kind of made me think

You don't like to fuck me
So why am I still here
Gettin' you to give me some lovin'
Is like gettin' me to give up beer
You don't like to fuck me
So I guess I'll just get on home
I told you once I won't tell you again
Being with you is like being alone

I read books on makin' love and books on the psyche of women
We were wanderin' 'round in a desert of love but we needed an oasis to swim in
I packed my bags but your attention simply could not be bought
So I thought I'd write you this here song and let you know some of my thoughts


Eatin' S'mores and kissin' whores
And knockin' over discount liquor stores
I talked to a preacher and I talked to a nun
They said you son of a bitch you're a son of a gun
