'Til I Get It Right

Album: Keep Your Wig On (2004)
  • Well I spent all my money at the record store
    Bought a copy of "Revolver" and some Gang of Four
    Singles going steady
    Billie Holliday
    They had it all on vinyl
    And I was blown away

    Then I walked around the corner to my favorite bar
    I do a lot more walkin' since I wrecked my car
    They all know my name here
    I feel right at home
    I just might spend the night here
    Since I know you're not alone

    And then they play that song I love
    And I feel like I just can't lose
    I feel like I should call you up
    But I'll stay here all night
    'Till I get it right

    Well I wrote you a letter but I tore it up
    Then I wrote another letter and I tore it up
    Stare up at the ball game
    On the TV screen
    If you care to find me
    You'll know where I'll be

    And then they play that song I love
    And I feel like I just can't lose
    I feel like I should call you up
    But I'll stay here all night
    'Till I get it right

    I'm down
    I'm down
    I'm down
    I'm down

    And then they play that song I love
    And I feel like I just can't lose
    I feel like I should call you up
    But I'll stay here all night
    'Till I get it right

    And then they play that song I hate
    And I feel like I just can't win
    I'm breakin' down
    The room begins to spin
    I'll stay here all night
    'Till I get it right
