You'll Do It All Again , Won't You?

Updated on March 29, 2014

MUSIC Up-tempo Country and Western style.


Did you think that I was dumb,

I'd believe the lines you spun,

As though my life had just begun.

Did you?


How could you spout those lies,

Thinking I'd not realise,

No truth could come from you.

How could you?


I've seen your kind before

And I've shown them out the door,

Whatever made you think,

That you could fool me?


CHORUS

I've had a fruitful life,

Though, of course there has been strife,

But I learned from my mistakes.

Along the way.

Then you come along and smile,

Mouthing sweetness all the while,

Saying I'm the only one

And you will stay.


HA! I'm afraid your time is up,

We'll never drink from the same cup.

You go your own way now....

Will you?


Let me get on with my life.

I'll forget you passed my way

You'll go find another fool.

Won't you?


yes you'll do it all again..

Won't you?






This man is the REAL deal.
This man is the REAL deal.

    That guy in your poem really gets around. I wasted a few years on him. Would make a great song, Dim.

    I would love to hear these wonderful lyrics put to song…they are very good. And Kris Kristofferson. (Be still my heart. :-) Still a very handsome man whose character shines through the years, and so well.

    Hi faith Reaper.

    Don't think there's any danger of me hitting the music scene at my age.

    I enjoy messing around on the piano and writing the lyrics, though.

    Thank you for your support.

    Yes, you could very well be a great song writer, but do not forget your friends on HP! Love that photo, and the one of the beautiful butterfly and flowers !

    Up and more, tweeting and pinning

    Have a great evening,

    Faith Reaper

    Those are some lyrics, that is for sure. I can easily see it set to music and you will become a famous song writer and travel the world. Seriously.
