Sweet Monique

Won’t somebody stop me
From bangin’ my head against the wall?
Pickin’ and a strummin’
‘Til the both of my hands get sore

Pushin’ ’round the difficult words
But they don’t sound right
Thinkin’ ’bout my baby
When she gets home tonight

I’ll put a rose between my teeth
A love-sick fool walkin’ down your street
You give your broken heart to me
Do I deserve you sweet Monique?
Do I deserve you sweet Monique?

She’s workin’ for the man
Puttin’ money in his pocket for sure
But it never was enough
So he’s pushin’ her out the door

He’s cruisin’ in the limousine
She gets on her bike
Gonna drink some bottles of wine
With my baby tonight

I’ll put a rose…

Saturday mornin’ we go to the supermarket
Maybe it’s the afternoon
Friends are comin’ over tonight
There’ll be a lotta love in the room

We’re jumpin’ on the tables
And we’re gonna let off some steam
I’ll be underneath the stars
With the woman of my dreams

I’ll put a rose between my teeth
A love-sick fool walkin’ down your street
Your broken heart, you give to me
Do I deserve you sweet Monique?
You give your great big heart to me
Do I deserve you sweet Monique?
