Lyrics

(I've Got) Better Things To Do

You ask me if I want to go out shopping at the mall
Instead of drinking beer at home and watching basketball.
Why do you ask that question when you know what I will choose?
You create a situation, babe, where I can only lose.
I could sit around and wonder why you do the things you do,
But, honestly, to tell the truth - I've got better things to do

Baby, please don't ask me how that outfit makes you look.
You know I like your clothes the best when they're hanging on a hook.
Don't ask me if your new dress makes you look a little fat.
What kind of fool would answer a question such as that?
When it becomes impossible to try to talk to you
I step outside and take a ride - 'cause I've got better things to do.

I could balance my checkbook; get my tax returns prepared;
Change the oil in the pick-up; get the lawn mower repaired;
Synchronize my cell phone; get my emails organized.
There's a million things I'd rather do, so don't look so surprised.

Don't you understand why I don't say what's on my mind?
It's what a psychoanalyst would call a double bind.
I could tell you what I'm thinking but the truth might be unkind,
So I just keep my mouth shut and play deaf, dumb and blind.
Your questions they are so many and my answers are so few,
But I know one thing for certain - I've got better things to do.

I could stare at my navel; Pick the jam out of my toes
Try to cut those little hairs that grow out of my nose;
Get my pilot's license so I can fly away.
So many things I'd rather do than go on this way.

You like making lists of honey dos and honey don'ts.
You always play by rules of what you will and what you won't.
I can't get a word in edgewise, so how would you have known
That I once had a will to live and a life I called my own?
Perhaps someday you'll wonder what it was I did for you,
But until that day I'm on my way - I've got better things to do

I've had enough of this goofy stuff - I've got better things to do.
