'Aint it 'Amazin What a Man Will Do For Love
T. Edwin Doss
When the preacher said, "Death do us part", it was basically benign How could I have known you would misconstrue that particular line I wish you wouldn't pressure me to map out a definitive plan..(oh man) Oh, the direction I'm 'goin is too difficult for the lay person to understand
But, I don't play poker anymore with the boys on Friday nights Got rid of my bird dog, my blue ribbon hog...don't instigate anymore bar fights I don't whistle at no 'purdy girl..not even that 'ol redhead And just for you babe I take a shower every night before I slide into bed I know you're proud of me 'makin good choices To get a "gold star" on my conduct report... 'Aint it 'amazin what a man will do for love as a last resort? I have duties to complete 'takin trash to the street..I plod a familiar path I love the feeling it brings, when I scrub your tub rings When you're 'standin there 'waitin for your bubble bath
But, I don't play poker anymore with the boys on Friday nights Sold my 'fishin gear, my bass boat at the pier.. You'll never see me in the "neon light ..I don't whistle at no sexy girl.. Not even my third wife...got pictures of me all over the bathroom walls To let you know I'm "number one" in your life..I know you're proud of me, 'Makin good choices to be a career companion and a handsome escort.. 'Aint it 'amazin what a man will do for love as a last resort? I see the notes that you make on the dishes I break when I'm 'slavin at the kitchen sink...oh, but one should always cull when the cabinets get too full I'm only 'allowin the dinnerware inventory to shrink!
Ooh, your Mama's doubtful..she's 'whisperin dark thoughts in your ear Like, why don't I get a haircut, buy me some clothes, and have a "nine-to-five career"? Just tell her for twenty years I've had my fortune well diversified..(oh my 'achin side).. and I've admired your Daddy 'takin thirty years...to pay off that "double-wide"
But, I don't play poker anymore with the boys on Friday nights... Don't hang around pool halls 'avoidin your phone calls, 'tryin to sneak back in the house long after mid-night... Don't leave my dirty socks 'layin 'round on the 'livin room floor...and just for you babe, when you bring the groceries in...I always open up that heavy screen door I know you're proud of me, 'makin good choices over lawyer fees and a divorce court..'aint it 'amazin what a man will do for love as a last resort...I know you're proud of me 'bein all I can be...'goin "full tilt" instead of 'comin up short..'aint it 'amazin what a man will do for love as a last resort
