All Over Me

At a bar on the West side
Not far as the crow flies
I went looking for trouble last night

I thought she might be there
‘cause we used to go there
And dammit if I wasn’t right

She was back in the corner
In the arms of a stranger
And it looked like they needed a room

So much for deliberation
In our trial separation
And the case of the gullible groom

Here come the heartaches again
Now I’m tortured by my memory
‘cause the way she was all over him
I could tell she was all over me

Well, we had our problems
But I was sure we could solve ‘em
I thought we were doin’ all right

‘til she took her anger
And clothes on the hangers
And left in a huff the other night

So I poured a double
Then I downed a couple
And I ended up here almost blind

Where my soon to be “ex”
Had already said “next”
And she seemed to be makin’ out fine

I remember that saying, “Seeing’s Believing”
And it’s hard when you don’t know the truth
So I guess I was lucky to find her so easy
Look’s like that’s how he found her too

Here come the heartaches again
Now I’m tortured by my memory
‘cause the way she was all over him
I could tell she was all over me

All over me
The woman was all over me
The way she was all over him
I could tell she was all over me
