Track Name: Triflin' Woman
Now, I’ve always been a triflin’ woman,
but I don’t wanna trifle no more,
‘cause I ain’t met a man like you before,
and I don’t wanna trifle no more.

So here I am watchin’ this record you gave me
go round and round and round,
but that record sho’ don’t sound as sweet
as your voice at the end of the line.

The end of the line, the end of the line;
Is this the end of the line?
Is your freight train just stuck? Is it runnin’ on time?
Or is this the end of the line?

Now, even Eve, she was a deceiver,
but Adam, he still didn’t leave her.
Granted, she was the only woman on Earth.

The only woman on Earth,
from the ribcage, immaculate birth.
Oh, what would I give to live for a day
as the only woman on Earth?

Answer this question truthfully:
Are you still in love with me?
Answer me tender, but please tell me true,
‘cause I think I’m in love with you.

Now, I’ve always been a triflin’ woman,
but I don’t wanna trifle no more,
‘cause I ain’t met a man like you before,
and I don’t wanna trifle no more.
Track Name: Discount Savior
Baby, let me be your discount savior;
I'll wrap your soul in cellophane
If you return the favor.

I'm a tin-can one-night stand,
A microwaveable V.D. dinner,
Instant liability,
Just add another sinner.

So hard to get is for the birds,
And flirtin's for the bees,
Just lay your sermon down,
I do my prayin' on my knees.

I'll be your dollar-bin messiah,
Spin me 'round on your Victrola,
We'll crank it up to 78 for Rum and Coca-Cola.

I'm a little scuffed up,
I ain't too smooth,
But i'll make your needle jump
Until it finds my groove.

I'll be your discount savior...
Track Name: Leavin' On My Mind
I got leavin’ on my mind,
‘cause I got murder on my head.
You left me at the altar,
and you wrecked my wedding bed.

In the beginning, Cain slew Abel,
and this is what he said:
I got leavin’ on my mind,
‘cause I got murder on my head.

I’m going East of Eden,
where angels fear to tread.
I got leavin’ on my mind,
‘cause I got murder on my head.
Track Name: Damn Shame (Live)
When she leaves you on your knees,
or weepin’ in the pews,
or starin’ real forlorn
in your Chevrolet’s rear-view,
well, there ain’t much,
there ain’t much you can do.

I’ve tried drinkin’ whiskey,
and I’ve tried takin’ dope;
Mary tried the shotgun,
now she’s hangin’ from a rope
in Texarkana.

Ain’t it a shame?
That he didn’t feel the same
about her?

And I hate to be the one to break the news,
but there ain’t a lot you can do
when she don’t feel that way about you.
Track Name: Oh, My Dear
Someday, you’re gonna find somebody
who loves you like you love me.
Until then, I’ll be your friend,
oh my dear, oh my dear.

Someday, you’re gonna find a voice
that sings in harmony.
‘Cause I’ve been singin’ a different song,
and I’ve been singin’ in a different key.

I know you think you found a home,
but I’m just passin’ through.
So saddle up, and ride with me,
‘cause I’m a lonely traveler, too.

(Repeat 1st verse.)
Track Name: Who will buy me liquor?
Who will buy me liquor when you’re gone?
Who will whet my whistle until dawn?
What will I do when I can’t have you?
Who will buy me liquor when you’re gone?

Who will laugh politely at my jokes?
Who will stick a card between my spokes?
Who will slap my ass when them holy rollers pass?
Who will laugh politely at my jokes?

Who will watch me blubber when you leave?
Who will wipe my mucous with her sleeve?
Though when you say “goodbye,” won’t be reason left to cry,
Who will watch me blubber when you leave?

(Repeat 1st verse.)
