Lyrics

Just try and calm down
She will be back this way
She will love you someday
Just stick around

You're on your knees
You're beggin' please
Won't you just spend five minutes talking to me?

But the answers are fleeting
And having the answer is cheating
But somehow these answers are making their way across the whole dam town
Just try and calm down

I gotta little problem that I think you know too well
Used to have a woman, now she's with someone else
It's easy to tell

I always kept her warm at night, I never did her wrong
I even did her dishes before I'd mow the lawn
But I guess that's just not enough

Just try and calm down
She will be back this way
She will love you someday
Just stick around

You're on your knees
You're beggin' please
Won't you just spend five minutes talking to me?

But the answers are fleeting
And having the answer is cheating
But somehow these answers are making their way across the whole dam town
Just try and calm down

So I wrote a nice letter and I mailed it to the Lord
But she was too busy so I just got ignored
Then I went to the store to buy some alcohol
I took that seven-fifty, thought I could drink it all
Then I wrote her another letter on the floor of a bathroom stall

Just try and calm down
She will be back this way
She will love you someday
Just stick around

You're on your knees
You're beggin' please
Won't you just spend five minutes talking to me?

But the answers are fleeting
And having the answer is cheating
But somehow these answers are making their way across the whole dam town
Just try and calm down
