Wow, wow, what can I say?
I never thought this would happen,
Especially on a day, like today.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s really you,
I wish I could say I’m relieved,
But then I’d be a bigger fool.
I guess I left the barn door open,
One too many days, I guess what
Betrayed me was my trusting ways,
I should have listened to the words
My wise old daddy said,
“A woman has a stubborn side,
In her heart and in her head,
Especially, if she feels she’s been
Willfully mislead, so watch her with
A suspicious eye, and don’t let her
Charm you because if you do,
She’ll damn well put an end to you.”
Wow, it just can’t be, the last I saw you,
Was it seven years ago or possibly eight,
When you said you were going with the ladies
To the church? A lie is a lie, then it gets worse.
You picked him up, a sinner no doubt,
He wanted in and you wanted me out.
You never came back, not even a word,
I tracked you down by the rumors I heard,
That you left me today because the devil
Lead you that way.
He said you’re a church mouse and nothing more,
You were attending the service but the wrong door,
So stop this church going and follow me,
There’s a lot of other men and liquor to be,
So if that’s what you want and you want no more,
You can find me knocking at your back door.
I wished you had asked me,
Because, I could have been that guy,
Who could do church one minute,
And then the next moment, whiskey and rye.
You thought I was no more fun,
Because I was a church-going man,
Whose chasing was now done,
But there’s still a lot of good fun, in the likes of me,
So come back to where you belong,
What you did then is done and gone,
I welcome you back, like God and his prodigal son.
