Something Else

From "Steak"

Well, I've had me a few regrets
And you've been more than one
The day you walked into my life
I should have turned and run

You used to treat me just like dirt
But that's no longer true
'Cause when you're in the house
The dirt don't have to deal with you

You're like a hen that just lays rotten eggs
I bet my bottom dollar on a horse that's got no legs
I ought to split like firewood
But you say we've got something good
But Honey, we've got something else.

Something else, altogether
Something else, that's what you are
You're the worst I could imagine,
But the best I've had so far
If anybody needs me I'll be underneath the bar
'Cause Honey, you're something else

So if I made a top ten list
Of things I really hate
Weevils would be number one
And you'd be two through eight.
Your love is one of them giant checks
That never can be cashed
My heart's a baked potater
And you'd rather have it mashed

Well I'm a lot more driven then you think
I let you drive me wild
And then you drove me straight to drink
Well, I've been lonely plenty of times
But if loving you is a crime
They'll have to lock me up for something else

Something else, altogether
Something else, that's what you are
You've got all the taste my dear,
Of a twenty cent cigar
So I'll just keep pick-a-pick-a-pick-a- pick-a-pick-a-pickin' on the old guitar
And singing Honey, you're something else

My Mama, she still talks about you
Every time she calls
And last time she used words
I'd only seen on bathroom walls
She said I could get rid of you
But every time I fail
The only thing I know would work
Would buy me life in jail.

She says I should've never brought you home
That a woman needs a man
Just like a goldfish needs a comb
Well if that's true then I just wish
I wasn't such a hairy fish
She says she hates to watch me pish
My life away for such gibberish
She's right I ought to pish my life away
For something else

Something else, altogether
Something else, that's what you are
You've swung a lot of birdies boy,
If killing me is par
And hell at least is cleaner than the back seat of your car
'Cause Honey, you're something else

Something else, altogether
Something else, that's what you are
My diary's a horror flick, and baby you're the star
There's a word for living with you, it's spelled W-A-R
'Cause Honey, you're something else
Something else
Honey, you're something else
