Lyrics

Hey Johnny

Written By: Penny Bokma

Hey Darlin’,
Can I buy you a drink?
Nudge nudge, wink wink
Hey Johnny
You can go to hell
Cos there’s somethin’ I just gotta tell

I saw you swagger through the door
Swingin’ your hips, dippin’ your hat
Pursin’ your lips, thinkin’ you were all that
I’ve seen all your moves before
Your western boots and your cowboy hat
Your three button shirt and your jeans all black
Well I aint gonna take your crap no more

Chorus:
Cos you’re a
Lyin’, cheatin, thievin’ ass
A good for nothin’ roustabout
You stole my heart
Then threw it to the floor
Well, my posse’s back
And I’m here to tell ya Jack
Don’t come knockin’ at my shack
Cos you aint dippin’ your hat at my door

With your hairy chest
And your scarf all checked
Gold pendant hangin’ from your neck
You bed hoppin’ sleep around
Good for nothin’ get about
I aint gonna be your broad…no more
You’re a losin’, boozin’ boy of dread
Your boots aint goin’ near my bed
So just go back and saddle up your horse

Repeat Chorus:

Hey Darlin’,
Can I buy you a drink?
Nudge nudge, wink wink
Hey Johnny
You can go to hell
Cos I’m sure that’s a rat that I can smell.

Love's Just Like That

Written By: Penny Bokma

I walked into the corner store just the other day
I went up to the counter and the girl she looked my way
She asked me what had happened
“I’m just clumsy”‘s all I said
Cos if she really knew the truth
This she never would have guessed

Chorus: And love’s just like that, I suppose
But I want a better life
Love’s just like that, I suppose
I’m a mother and your wife

I see the neighbours look at me and my mama knows the truth
She knows just what you’re doin’ and she know its cos of you
She tells me not to stay there - she begs me to come home
But mama, I need to do this, I need to do this on my own

I can see it in my children;
I can see their frightened eyes
I can see that this is changing them
It’s become their way of life
I know if I don’t leave right now I may never get the chance
I know if I don’t leave right now
Their hearts will never dance

Chorus:

And then that day, it finally came
When I’d walk out of your life
Somehow you knew and you just said
“I’d always be your wife”

You took that gun
And you took aim
And with it took my life

Somehow you knew and you just said
I’d always be your wife

And love’s just like that
I suppose
I just wanted a better life
Love’s just like that, I suppose
I was a mother and your wife.

Beside You

Written By: Penny Bokma

As you start your life
And I watch you grow
There are just some little things
That I want you to know

Chorus:
I’ll hold your hand
I’ll guide you
And there I’ll stand
Beside you
That’s where I’ll be
Whenever you need

I’ll watch you laugh, I’ll see you cry
And I’ll wipe the tears that fall
I’ll know all of your favourite things
You’ll rise and you may fall
But one thing you need to know is
This much I know for sure
I will be beside you through it all

Chorus:

And when it’s time to spread your wings
I’ll let you fly away
Cos I know that there will be a time
When you return someday
Just find the road
That leads you home
Cos that is where I’ll be
I will be beside you
When you need
