WHAT WAS I THINKIN'

Copyright 2010 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

We were hot and heavy
Hanginí in my Chevy
I was flyiní higher than Neil Armstrong
I shoulda known better
As I fumbled with her sweater
This wouldnít be the last thing I was gonna get wrong

 

She made me feel mighty
When she teased me in her nightie
Playiní Fay Wray to my beastly Kong
I was down-and-dirty
She was fast-and-flirty
How did I ever think that we would get along

 

What was I thinkiní, what could I been drinkiní
How did I manage to misplace my mind
What was I drinkin, what could I been thinkiní
How did I fool myself for such a long time

 

She always called me honey
As she helped me spend my money
Minus my checkbook Iíd be straps for her sarong
She always liked to hurry,
Kept things kinda blurry
Hid from me my role as her tag-along

 

Our love talk didnít matter
Meant nothiní more than chatter
We were both rehearsiní for our pendiní swan song
ĎCause I was down-and-dirty
She was fast-and-flirty
How did I ever think that we would get along

 

What was I thinkiní, what could I been drinkiní
How did I manage to misplace my mind
What was I drinkin, what could I been thinkiní
How did I fool myself for such a long time

 

She fixed herself up
Like flowers fresh cut
Said she was goiní out to play a game of mahjong
Came back with wrinkled dress
Her makeup all a-mess
Was only gone an hour, didnít take her too long

 

I woke up on a Tuesday
Turned out a bad news day
Sheíd left me like a river leaves a billabong
Yes, I was down-and-dirty
But she was fast-and-flirty
How did I ever think that we would get along

 

What was I thinkiní, what could I been drinkiní
How did I manage to misplace my mind
What was I drinkin, what could I been thinkiní
How did I fool myself for such a long time

 

What was I thinkiní
What could I been drinkiní
What was I thinkiní
What could I been drinkiní
What was I thinkiní
What could I been drinkiní
What was I thinkiní
What could I been drinkiní
What was I thinkiní, thinkiní
