lyrics

Well you were sitting down with a blank look on your face
‘Trying to shield away any sign of disgrace
When someone told you that your boyfriend lied to you
“I’m sure he has an excuse,” she said
But way back, in the back of my head I know

CHORUS:
You deserve better
You don’t deserve second best
He shouldn’t put you to the test like that, oh no
You deserve better
You don’t deserve second best
You’re too humble to think it but I know it’s true

All the sacrifices you make to keep your teddy bear at home
‘Don’t you know when he finds a new toy that he’ll leave you alone
“But he’s so cute, he’s so gorgeous” (yeah)
Ain’t that what your friends say
And guess who else, yeah that’s right
His other girlfriend

CHORUS

Don’t you know what he does behind your back? (repeat)

Oh I wish it were true
Fine, he’s a nice person
You two look nice together
But we would have looked better, oh yeah
Well I guess I’ve got to let it go

Mr. Michalski has been recording and performing music since his high school days in 1993. CRANKY is his first non-single release since 2013. ... more
