Why Can't I Make It With You?
Music & Lyrics by James A. Schoke © Copyright 2008

(Verse)
I've climbed the Blue Ridge Mountains,
Won a Big D Marathon, too,
I can set the pace with other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
I've broken buckin' broncos,
Been a top dog wrangler, too,
I can rodeo with other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
(Chorus)
I'm a guy with tons of talent,
Gett'n' rave reviews,
I've got slim girls, swim girls, small girls, tall girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
(Verse)
I've got prizes for my two-step ,
Won a line-dance contest or two,
I can dosie doe with other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
In Nashville they adore me,
Got a First Prize singin' the blues,
I get wicked whistles from other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
(Chorus)
I'm a guy with tons of talent,
Gett'n rave reviews,
I've got witty girls, pretty girls, plain girls, vain girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
(Verse)
I attract 'em when actin',
My guitar pickin' gets 'em unglued,
I get curtain calls from other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
Got ribbons for bach'lor cookin',
A blue one for ribs barbecued,
My chicken's finger-lickin' good to other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you.
(Chorus)
I'm a guy with tons of talent,
Gettin rave reviews,
I've got young girls, old girls, cold girls, bold girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
(Verse)
My CD's are best sellers,
My paintings have queues at debuts,
I can paint the town red with other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
I'm known as "Mister Profile"
And famed as a fitness guru,
I'm a real hunk to other girls,
So, why can't I make it with you?
(Chorus)
I'm a guy with tons of talent,
Gett'n rave reviews,
Don't want these girls, those girls, Ooh, Ah, Oh girls,
I just wanna make it with you,
(Spoken) That's all I want!
Am I too modest to make it with you?
