What do you mean you see lies in my eyes?
Stop it now hon...Can't stand it when you cry
You do NOT know me! I swear I would never...
(What can I do? Can't hide this forever)
She asked me to dance, I was just being kind
Got crazy and drunk, lost track of the time
She said she would drive 'cause she didn't drink
Whose car? Don't remember; ours, I think
Kiss her? No way! (At least not on the face)
Where? Well I guess we went back to her place
I swear to god hon, I'm telling the truth!
First time!...Her name? I-uh, think it was Ruth...
Can you ever forgive me? Please have a heart
Can't forget? Okay, I guess that's a start...
(DAMN IT, you're a fool! What the HELL did you do?
Shoulda' denied the whole thing; she doesn't trust you!
What about the others? Can't get any dumber!
Gotta' THINK...Oh god; did I give her my number?)
***Loosely based on the divorce of two very good friends of mine...
