One Up On You

Today
You got a surprise
Your love is gone
It’s dead in her eyes.

Last night
She’s early to rise
Fired the big one
That marked your demise.

CHORUS:
She lied when she spoke
Promises up in smoke
Your love line lies broke
What a joke that she’s played on you
She’s one up on you.

Next day
She can hardly disguise
She’s going out
To collect her new prize.

Midnight
She has lust in her eyes
But she’s not there
With your head between her thighs.

CHORUS:
She bitched when you sighed
Wondered why you never cried
Unhinged as she tried
To decide over him or you
He’s one up on you.

These days
She’s ignoring your cries
And yet you can’t
Get a word in edgewise.

Late nights
No more whos wheres or whys
She even makes
Little cracks about size.

CHORUS:
She shows off her gown
She smirks when you frown
She plans to go down
To the town when she’s out on you
She’s one up on you
What else can you do?

INSTRUMENTAL

OUTRO:
She lied when she spoke
Promises up like smoke
Your love line lies broke
What a joke that she’s played on you
She’s one up on you.

Her words are like coke
One whiff and you’re broke
They ask if you toke
As a cloak when she daggers you
She’s moved out on you.

July’d with heat stroke
Up on stage you choke
She don’t need your bit jokes
With that bloke she picked over you
She’s cleared off on you
And he’s done well by you.
