Two Rings Shy

  • I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
    Ain't gonna paint this pretty face, like you paint the town
    I ain't wastin' good mascara, just to watch it runnin' down
    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown

    I could spend an hour on my makeup and my hair
    Shoes to tall, dress to small, and lacy underwear
    Go down to the bar, and buy myself a drink
    Dangle there all perfect, like a puppet on a string

    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
    Ain't gonna paint this pretty face, like you paint the town
    I ain't wastin' good mascara, just to watch it runnin' down
    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown

    You got girls that sing and dance, I hear ones an acrobat,
    You got 'em swinging from the chandelier, well honey I don't swing like that
    The main attraction's leaving, let the side show pay the rent
    Take this diamond back and you'll be two rings shy of the big top tent

    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
    Ain't gonna paint this pretty face, like you paint the town
    I ain't wastin' good mascara, just to watch it runnin' down
    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown

    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
    Tiptoe 'cross the tight-rope, till you turn me upside down
    Cut the cable, pull the net, just to let me hit the ground
    I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown Writer/s: BRANDY CLARK, HEATHER LITTLE, MIRANDA LAMBERT
