Song Description

A frustrated man (or woman) sings about his partner's running around, no good ways and her mis-treatment of him and asks just to get a break. This tune is meant to be humoros and not angry,spiteful or mean.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by my wonderful wife in one of my frustrated moments- everythingh in the song is fictitious however, except the feeling of frustration.


Hey baby, don?t you treat me this way
I say most every night.
I?m getting tired of your running around
And girl you know that just aint right.
All my friends call me a fool and they say you?re just no good.
And then I say that I?m leaving, but you know I never could.

Hey Girl, take a listen to me
It?s something that you never do.
Sit down and open your heart
?Cause I want to talk to you.
Don?t tell me that you love me, then treat me so bad.
Lord I just don?t know
Why I?m in love with a woman that loves to hurt me so.


I?m just your fool, but I don?t know how much I can take.
So baby please won?t you come on home
And give my poor heart a break.
Come on baby, Give my poor heart a break.

Well I?ve tried so hard to do my best
But girl you just won?t quit.
I know you?re running around, all over town
And I?ve seen who you?re dancing with.
The funny thing is that I pity the fool who ever falls in love with you.
So take one look at me, cause baby you and I are through.


I was your fool, and I took all that I could take
So now it?s time to draw the line
And give my poor heart a break
I?ve decided to give my poor heart a break
