I Could Do Better [Demo]

Written By James Russo

About The Song:

I wrote and recorded this demo at about four in the morning on a very hot summer night, very long ago. With the air conditioner blasting on high, my heart sent this special message out to all of the lonely mothers of the world.

This song is written from a point of view different than my own. Think middle aged white trash boyfriend. Sometimes being a terrible human being can be its own reward. Go Alcoholism!

The Lyrics:

Well, I don't have no high class things, like money cars or fame,
In fact I don't have anything I don't even know my name.
But honey child, baby cakes, heres one thing that I do,
I know more now than ever, it's true.

Cause' I could do better than a girl like you,
And if you want to tell me, tell me, tell me what to do.
Then I could do better than a girl like you,
Just loan me a couple dollars, and where through...

Well if it wasn't raining, then I'd storm right out of here,
Instead I'll just bitch and moan as I sip my beer.
You'll be sorry when I'm gone, you called me a dead beat, but you where wrong.

Cause' I could do better than a girl like you,
And if you want to tell me, tell me, tell me what to do.
Then I could do better than a girl like you,
Just loan me a couple dollars, and where through...

Well now, baby I didn't mean it, I take it back.
I had to much to drink now, in fact.
You know I love you, I'll never drink again,
Could I borrow twenty bucks, for a friend.
