Lyrics

When I Swing

Written By: Fran English

Daddy said
straighten up the living room before you play
She forgot
then she didn't get a minute to explain
fist in hand
had to teach her certain lessons by the book
ice cold stare
honey I can set you back with just one look
Chorus: When I swing
It's not because I love you any less
Oh, no
When I hit, it's only 'cause I love you and to let you know
Darlin' I adore you
Just wanna help you see
I never love you any better than
When I Swing.

Now a wife
and he comes home and orders up his meals to go
Kitchen's slow
and he won't tolerate the wait and lets her know
Fist in hand
He's gotta teach her certain lessons by the book
ice cold stare
honey I can set you back with just one look
Chorus: When I swing
it's not because I love you any less
Oh, no
When I hit
It's only 'cause I love you and to let you know
Darlin' I adore you
Just wanna help you see
I never loved you any better than
when I swing

Years pass by
Authorities are calling it a tragedy
Judge presides
wants to hear the truth and just the truth at once
Ice cold stare
Can't recall exactly where she got the gun
Finally swears
Well your Honor, see, it always went like this...
Chorus: When I swing
It's not because I love you any less
Oh, no
When I hit
It's only 'cause I want you at your best my love
Darling I adore you
Just wanna help you see
I never loved you any better than
When I swing....
