I got a previous commitment to my self-respect

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

Second-String Chump

April 25, 2012

You sent me a text
When your man was away
Said we could meet
If I wanted some play

Things been ruff since I got dumped
But I ain’t gonna be your second-string chump

You wanted to meet
At the far end of town
So no one would see
You were messin around

I’ve been in one helluva a slump
But I ain’t gonna be your second-string chump

You call me up
At a quarter to four
Ya run outta ice
Can I get you some more?

I’ll do what I do to get over the hump
But I ain’t gonna be your second-string chump

We hooked up once
It wasn’t that good
You never called back
Like you said you would

Things been ruff since I got dumped
But I ain’t gonna be your second-string chump

ain’t gonna be your second-string chump
ain’t gonna be your second-string chump
ain’t gonna be your second-string chump
