Lyrics

"If I Was A Family Man"
© 2011 Capers Simmons (ASCAP)

VERSE I
I wrote the check and now I'm cashing it,
Passionately I make my plea.
I'm not guilty by insanity, just look at me.
And ask my friends, they'll all agree,.

PRECHORUS
I'm the grownup, it's time to own up
And I suppose that's true
But I'm not sure what to do
I'm black and blue about it,
Wishing I was someone new.

CHORUS
If I was a family man
I'd do whatever I can to make it;
A little better than I actually am,
I'd wouldn't even have to fake it.
Even though I'm just an average Joe
And I don't really know if I can,
I would be so responsible,
Cross my heart and swear it's so,
If I was a family man.

VERSE II
Well I guess I'm on the hook for this
Look at this mess I've made of things.
Now I've got a problem and I'm here with it
"So deal with it," that's what they been telling me

~ PRECHORUS ~ CHORUS ~

BRIDGE
One life in the balance
Ain't much of a challenge.
As long it's mine on the line
I don't have worry 'bout two.
One whole 'other person
Makes things a little worse when
I'm trying to make it through the day.
And I've got to worry 'bout you.

~ CHORUS ~

FINAL CHORUS
But I would be so responsible,
Cross my heart and swear it's so,
Make the time, keep my word,
Do those other things I've heard
Are what a man's supposed to do,
Pay my bills and tell the truth
If I was a family man.
