about

Just your classic riff-rocker. It all started with a basic drum pattern, sometimes I'll hit the drum machine while doing chores around the shack ... may be why I'm still single ... anyway, in between washing and drying dishes, I picked up a guitar and started banging out the opening riffs. I fell in love with the staggered riff and started humming along. The lyrics would come the following weekend, but that's another story .. a horror story for a Capricorn. Public scenes are shunned but at least you're the referee. Yes, my my .. xoRJ

lyrics

If he never would’ve dumped her
He’d never have to suffer
I told him that time and again
How could he have a problem with that hot little body
And the tight little dress it was in - yeah

The band played a slow one
So she asked him to dance
He rolled his eyes and shrugged her off
She told a silly joke and I started laughing
He told us both to fuck off -

I said say sorry
You’re a fool to treat the girl like that
I said say sorry
Cause believe me you can’t leave a girl like that
Say sorry…

She reached for him to calm her
She was headed for hysterics
He smiled and pushed her away
Said don’t ever touch me
Then he turned around and left her
She started cryin’ on me - yeah

I reached for a napkin
From somewhere on the table
I did my best to dry her eyes
She sadly smiled
Said it was building for awhile
But the sad thing is he just didn’t try

I said I’m sorry -
He’s a fool to treat a girl like that
I said I’m sorry -
He’s a fool to leave a girl like that

I said I’m sorry -
It’s so cruel to treat a girl like that
I said I’m sorry but believe me ..
I won’t leave a girl like that

A girl like that…
Why don’t you just say sorry….
Say sorry
Say sorry - just say sorry

You’ve torn your dress; your face is a mess….
