Lyrics

One Piece Left

Written By: Ganelle Djarlo

I got one piece left of this heart of mine.

It's been battered and bruised but I think it'll be fine.

It's been holding on for a long long time.

I got one piece left, and it's mine.

I used to be a good girl.
I used to be a good wife.
I used to do all the things I should do with my life.
I used to howl at the moon and laugh at the sun, but those people left with piece number one.

I used to love babies and puppies too.
I used to do all the things that good girls should do.
I said "yes daddy".
I said "I do".
Then those people left with piece number two.

But I got one piece left of this heart of mine.
It's been battered and bruised but I think it'll be fine.
It's been holding on for a long long time.
I got one piece left, and it's mine.

I used look nice.
I used to act sweet.
I used to do the right things.
Yeah, I'd say the right things.
I used to say it didn't hurt when it really stings.
Then those people left with piece number three.

But I got one piece left of this heart of mine.
It's been battered and bruised but I think it'll be fine.
It's been holding on for a long long time.
I got one piece left, and it's mine.

I"m gonna take this one piece.
I'm gonna hold it tight.
I'm gonna use it to sing,
I'm gonna use it to fight.
I'm gonna be all the things I wanted to be.
Yeah, this one piece, it was left her for me.

Yeah, I got one piece left of this heart of mine.
It's been battered and bruised but I think it'll be fine.
It's been holding on for a long long time.
I got one piece left, and it's mine.

It's just one little piece..
But it's all mine...

Moan

Written By: Ganelle Djarlo

Well a man can make me smile and a man can make me cry. Now a man can hurt me so bad, I wanna lay down and die. Oh but there's not one man I've known. No not one man alone. That can do what country music does and that's make me moan. Make me moan. Make me moan. I just turn that country music on and it makes me moan. Oh man can make me wiggle and chill me to the bone. Oh but there's not one man I've known that can do what country music does. And that's make moan. Now a man can take my money. And a man take my home. Now a man can take my new pick up truck and leave me with the loan. Oh but there's not one man I've known. No not one man alone. That can do what country music does. And that's make moan. Make me moan. Make me moan. I just turn that country music on and it makes me moan. Oh man can make me giggle and chill me to the bone. Oh but there's not one man I've known that can do what country music does and that's make me moan. Make me moan. Make me moan. I just turn that country music on and it makes me moan. Oh a man can make me wiggle and chill me to the bone. Oh but there's not one man I've known. No, not one single man alone. That can do what country music does and that's make me moan.....

Hey Cowboy

Written By: Ganelle Djarlo

Hey Cowboy Out on the range Do you think that we could arrange A time or two to do the things that cowboys like to do? Hey Cowboy Out on your bronc Do you think that you could honky tonk With a lovely blue eyed cowgirl who's got the baby blues for you? Now Cowboy You're just moseying along But you're singing such a lonely cowboy song That I thought that I might come along and sing a song for you Yeah you Now Cowboy You can pick me up In your big red and white flare side pick up truck And with a little luck and a kiss and hug I'll sit right next to you Now Cowboy You just tip your hat And you tell me what you think about that And in a minute flat we'll both be smiling saying "I do" And then Cowboy You'll be so proud in your boots With a mountain home full of cowboy cutes And you know they'll be lookin' alot like me and you Yeah you And then cowboy In your rocking chair When your hair is grey and you don't have a care Well you know that I'll be right there rockin' with you And then Cowboy When the big Hoss calls And we shuffle on up to Heaven's cowboy ball Well you know that I'll be right there waltzin' with you Oh Cowboy This is just a little song About a cowgirl who's just too far gone For a slow walkin' Sweet talkin' Cowboy like you A slow walkin' Sweet talkin' Cowboy like you

Slide

Written By: Ganelle Djarlo

Well you come sneakin' round my back door. Telling me you need me more and more. The thing is I heard this all before. I don't want that kinda stuff anymore. I want love. True love. True love. I wanna man who knows exactly what a woman's made of. Yeah. Now I want peace in my life. So slide back where you came from. I wanna be a good man's wife. Now you would slip away for days and days. I used to walk around in a heartache haze. Until one day I opened my eyes. That man was stading there and then I realized. I found love. True love. I found a man who knows exactly what a woman's made of. Yeah I found peace in my life. So slide back where you cam from. I'm gonna be a good man's wife. Well go on and slide. Just get on and slide. Oh slide away you slippery thing. You don't know what true love means. You just slip around thinkin' of yourself. I don't want that stuff. I want something else. I want love. True love. True love. I wanna man who knows exactly what a woman's made of. Yeah. I want peace in my life. Oh slide back where you came from. I wanna be good man's wife. Yeah slide back where you came from. I'm gonna be a good man's wife. Just get on and slide back where you came from. I'm finally a good man's wife.
