lyrics

Well, I don't like to glory / And your tears don't bring me joy / And I won't be dolin' out / An "I told you so," boy / That kind of thing's beneath me / Even though you made me cry / And I swear I didn't crack a smile / When I heard you're barely scrapin' by / B-b-b-barely scrapin' by / B-b-b-barely scrapin' by / B-b-b-babe, babe, babe / Oh, who am I kidding? / I cannot lie / I might've got a little tickled / To hear you're barely scrapin' by / Well, babe, I'm far from perfect / And I’ll never be a saint / But at least I was devoted / More often than ain't / You repaid me with a cheatin' heart / And a wanderin' eye / Still, I get no satisfaction / Knowin' that you're / just a-barely scrapin' by / B-b-b-barely scrapin' by / B-b-b-barely scrapin' by / B-b-b-babe, babe, babe / Oh, who am I kidding? / I cannot lie / I might've got a little tickled / to hear you're barely scrapin' by / I'd be inclined to have more sympathy / If you hadn’t been a-steppin' out on me / I heard she left you at the altar in July / And now you have no sugar-momma by your side / But I get no twisted sense of pleasure / Hearin’ that you’re barely scrapin’ by / They say you got evicted / And you had to move away / Guess that kind of thing will happen / When I ain't around to pay / You almost had that other girl / But then she got wise / Your friends all say you're pitiful / Now that you're just a-barely scrapin' by
