Charlie Robison's great song, "You're not the Best, but You're the Best that I Can Do"
Once I had a little girl
As pretty as I have known
Lord, you know, I loved her so
And then she left me all alone
So I swore upon this barstool
I would never make that mistake again
You ain't so fine, but you're all mine
And I'll love you to the end.
So darlin' don't you worry
Because they say that love is blind
But lust has eyes like an eagle
It's gonna drive me out of my mind
Though my eyes sometimes wander
It doesn't mean that I'm untrue
You're not the best, but you're the best that I can do.
You know, a pretty girl, she'll leave you
Leave you to drown in your own tears
You know, an ugly girl, well, she'll leave you too
But then again, who really cares?
If them eyes are blue, they cannot be true
They'll have to stay here in my dreams
And I guess that's why ol' Hugh Hefner invented Playboy magazine.
So sit down here beside me girl
And let me tell you what we will do
We're gonna twist them lids
And hope our kids look more like me than you
When that bottle is finally empty
We're gonna tumble across the floor
And I'm gonna pray my imagination
Is gonna pull me through once more.
That's one of my favorites, hope y'all enjoy it! Find more of Charlie's stuff at http://www.charlierobison.com
