Charlie Robison - You're Not The Best lyrics

Once I had a little girl as pretty
as I have known
Lord, you know I loved he so and then she
left me all alone
And I swore here on this barstool
I'd never make that mistake again
Well you ain't so fine but you're all mine
And I'll love you till the end

So darlin' don't you worry 'cause they
Say that love is blind
Lust has eyes like an eagle it's gonna drive
me outta my mind
Though my eyes sometimes wander it
doesn't mean that I'm untrue
You're not the best but you're the
best that I can do

You know a pretty girl she'll leave you
Leave you to drown in your own tears
You know an ugly girl well, she'll
leave you too
But then again who really cares
And then eyes of blue they cannot be true
They'll have to stay here in my dreams
I guess that's why ol' Hugh Hefner
invented Playboy Magazine

So, sit down here beside me girl
And I will tell you what we will do
We're gonna twist them lids and hope
Our kids look more like me than you
And when that bottle is finally empty
We're gonna tumble across the floor
And I'm gonna pray my imagination is
Gonna pull me through once more


You're not the best but you're the
best that I can do
