  • If woman come a dime a dozen,
    I ain't get a penny
    Some guys are gettin' way too much,
    Some guys don't get any

    [Chorus]
    But if I had a nickel for every time
    I'd had enough
    I'd still be busted and heartbroken still be
    Tryin' to fall in love

    I fell in love with Linda she didn't love me back
    I went crazy over Chrissy, she went crazy over Jack
    Maria down in Mexico, my Spanish Mona Lisa
    Tried to fly her back to Texas but she did not have a visa

    [Chorus]

    Bought Renee a dozen roses,
    All she did was make me beg
    Displayed my love for Donna with a tattoo on my leg
    There's a tree where me and Carla carved our names
    With a pocket knife
    But I like our love it burned down with a lighting strike

    [Chorus]

    Why does everybody say there's a lot of fish out in the sea?
    When I'm swimming after women they all laid up on the beach

    [Chorus]

    Yeah busted and heartbroken still be tryin' to fall in love Writer/s: BOBBY PINSON, TOBY KEITH
