Saw you across the crowded room
When I was singing in the bar
Puttin’ my heart and soul on the line
Through a pick-up in an old guitar
Caught you lookin’ at me
You mouthed every word that I sang
You weren’t lookin’ at all too married
‘cept for the ring on your left hand
I guess to you I’m just a singer in a cowboy hat
But I deserve a little better than that

You told me ‘bout your husband
Told me about your kids
Told me all about your beautiful life
And how your marriage is on the skids
But the kids are with the sitter
And you left your husband at home
You like to holiday with your girlfriends
‘Cause you have more fun when you’re on your own
Something tells me you’re gonna ask me back
Don’t they deserve a little better than that?

People think I’m lucky
And mostly I guess that’s true
But sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night
Lie there and think of you
Now each year it’s the same thing
When we run into each other again
You tell me all about what you’ve been doing
Kiss my cheek and squeeze my hand
And look at me like you’re rolling out the welcome mat
Don’t I deserve a little better than that?
Yeah I deserve a little better than that
We all deserve a little better
