Lyrics

Been a while but I'm out again--at the bar with my old friends
Gonna make a brand new start--mend the wounds of my broken heart.
Would you look at what the cat dragged in--the stupid man with a stupid grin
He's nothing but a waste of time--ain't getting' any more of mine.
Shame on him for breaking hearts for fun--
Shame on me for thinking I'm the one.
Shame on him for driving me insane-- shame.
All the ladies wanna check him out--wanna see what he's all about
Underneath that baseball cap--lies the makings of a dirty rat.
He's a charmer, knows how to flirt--smokin' hot in his worn-out shirt
Play with fire and you'll get burned--that's a lesson that you're gonna learn.
Shame on him for breaking hearts for fun--
Shame on me for thinking I'm the one.
Shame on him for driving me insane-- shame.
He's a player and he played me once. Took my love then he's gone for months.
Don't text, don't call, don't write. Kept me guessing--kept me up all night.
All you ladies better lock and load--put your heart where your guns are stowed
Take aim and don't lose site--stupid man going down tonight.
Shame on him for breaking hearts for fun--
Shame on me for thinking I'm the one.
Shame on him for driving me insane-- shame.

Very unique song.
Dont know if I'd call it country..but I listened several times..it does grow on you and you find yourself humming the tune. All in all I like it!! Sounds like something shania Twain would like to do. Great work.
