I got a previous commitment to my self-respect

zzsucker

You think I’ll stand in line
Until it’s my time
To spend all my money
On some wine and dine

You cancelled forty-seven dates
So what’d you expect?
I got a previous commitment
To my self-respect

You went to the restroom
But you never came back
Then I saw you at a club
Making out with Jack

I’d really love to see you
But last time I checked
I got a previous commitment
To my self-respect

You call in the morning
Needing a ride
When you were kicked to the curb
By another guy

I’d really love to help you
But last time I checked
I got a previous commitment
To my self-respect
