Lyrics

My Choice

Written By: Robert and Lorraine MacArthur

My Choice
Written by: Robert & Lorraine MacArthur

CHORUS
My choice, my bar
Now who do you think you are
Trying to make the true north smoke free
My house, my car
This time you’ve gone too far
Now the patio’s in jeopardy

Grandaddy fought in World War II
For the rights of me and you
Gave us all our freedom and rights to choose
They gave him two packs a day
Then sent him on his way
Now they kick his ass outside to have a butt or two

I’ve been a waitress here for years
Slinging wine and beers
I raised the kids on my gratuities
It used to be packed here every night
Now there ain’t a soul in sight
Since when is unemployed & broke healthy for me

BRIDGE
We’re running out of places to play,
Cause the bars just can’t pay

½ CHORUS

The politicians got me seeing red
I want a honky tonk party instead
You ain’t showing much hospitality
Although there’s not much we can do
We wrote this song for you
To show that we just disagree

CHORUS
I said, now the patio’s in jeopardy

Me and My Man

Written By: Lorraine MacArthur

Me & My Man

and here I go to work again, my boss is driving me insane
Too many hours not much pay, I struggle each & every day
My feet are sore & they're aching, feels like my poor ole back is breaking
My head is pounding from the noise, & all the come-ons from the boys

CHORUS:
Working in this bar won't get me very far, it's all the same
Cause when my shift is through I'll be coming home to you Where we can play
Saving every dime, waiting for our time to get away
Wlorking on a plan, just me & my man

Leaves for work at 6 a.m., nothing new it's all the same
Trying hard to earn a buck, up till now it's been bad luck
He works the day, I work the night, Yeah, we know it just ain't right
Just trying to make ends meet, sure as hell ain't easy street

CHORUS:

BRIDGE
May seem like he's never there, in this long distance love affair
Got a love, few share, no one could separate this pair

CHORUS

We're working on a plan, Just Me & My Man
