Bad Decisions

I met her today, figured we should get hitched
'Cause she's pretty, she's smart and she's rich
She's been divorced seven times but I'm still on a mission
Yeah, I'm gettin' pretty good at makin' bad decisions.

Chorus 1:
Bad decision one
I asked for her name
Number two
We drank too much champagne
Bad decision three
We drove to Vegas in my truck
But, no no no no...she didn't bring me any luck.
V 2
Well, it's been a few months and she's still around
I thought she was rich but there's no money to be found
She's acting real strange, and it's raisin' my suspicions,
Yeah, I'm gettin' pretty good at makin' bad decisions.

Chorus II:
Bad decision four
I got down on one knee
Number five
Then I gave her my key
Bad decision six
I said just feel right at home
But now, she won't leave me alone

Yeah, I really miss goin' out with the boys
Drinkin' some beer and makin' some noise
My trophy wife feels like a real ball and chain
Time to get outta here to ease my pain

V 3
I signed the papers today, now I'm broke again
It turns out all she wanted, was just dollars and cents
Yeah, her con was so good, she could've been a magician
Guess I'm gettin' pretty good at makin' bad decisions.

Chorus III:
Bad decision seven
I didn't have a pre-nup
Number eight
Guess my lawyer's a chump
Lesson learned
Can't be in a rush
Gonna wait for a woman
Who will love me enough

Can't make a mistake
I'll just take my time
Gotta do it right
C' no!
