Man Like That

Album: Gravel & Wine (2011)
  • I don't really wanna wake you
    I just came to get my things
    But the pretty lil' thing lying there beside you
    Better take off my wedding ring
    Hey, girl, do you really wanna do this
    You don't know what you're stepping in
    He's got more where that came from
    You're not so special in the end

    I'm messing up the place
    Kicking down the door
    Never wanna see his face no more

    (Ooh, ooh) girl, you better wake up
    (Ooh, ooh) girl, you better run
    (He's gone) first thing in the morning
    Faster than a bullet coming out of that gun
    (Ooh, ooh) tells you that he loves you
    (Ooh, ooh) then he take it all back
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that

    Uh-oh, now he's got you
    Right where he thinks you belong
    Did he bite you on the neck
    Right before the job was done
    And does he ask about your mama
    Does he sing your song when you get mad
    Well, I been there, done that many times
    And all the kicking and the screaming won't bring him back

    I'm messing up the place
    Kicking down the door
    Never wanna see his face no more

    (Ooh, ooh) girl, you better wake up
    (Ooh, ooh) girl, you better run
    (He's gone) first thing in the morning
    Faster than a bullet coming out of that gun
    (Ooh, ooh) tells you that he loves you
    (Ooh, ooh) then he take it all back
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that

    (Watch out, watch out) he's gonna get you
    (Watch out, watch out) he's gonna get you
    (Watch out, watch out) he's gonna get you
    (Watch out, watch out) he's gonna get you
    (Watch out, watch out) we're gonna get you

    (Ooh, ooh) girl, you better wake up
    (Ooh, ooh) girl, you better run
    (He's gone) first thing in the morning
    Faster than a bullet coming out of that gun
    (Ooh, ooh) tells you that he loves you
    (Ooh, ooh) then he take it all back
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder
    Girl, you gotta wonder 'bout a man like that
