about

"A song that shames wise guys who have an inflated view of their ability to attract members of the opposite sex"

lyrics

The other day I walked into Walgreens
Lady behind the counter smiled said hello to me
Not a big deal, It didn’t think much of it
It was just an innocent smile, or was it?

Got my pain relievers and went to pay
She pretended to ignore me and began to calculate
Then I felt that things started to get odd
At first she just asked if I had a walgreens card

That made me feel uncomfortable, said I wasn’t sure
She acted normal, but I sensed her motives were impure
Then it happened, even though she was much younger
Said she would look me up if she could have my phone number (I said)

CHORUS
Sorry mam but I’m happily married
I’m going home to my wife and family
Besides, you are much too young for me
Thanks for asking, it’s very flattering

Then I went to Panera to get me some coffee
Wore sunglasses so people wouldn’t notice me
Just one of the downsides to be a celebrity
But I was recognized on this day… apparently

Girl at the register said “Joke can I take your order?”
Was she coming onto me? Probably, sort of
I just looked at me feet and said “coffee in a mug”
At the sound of my voice she must have fell in love

She proceeded to ask me if I had my Panera card
I said unfortunately I left it in my car
Her next question left no doubt she hoped to by my lover
She said, “I’ll look you up if you give me your phone number” I said…

CHORUS
Sorry mam but I’m happily married
I’m going home to my wife and family (I take that back)
Besides, you are much too young for me
Thanks for asking, it’s very flattering (put it in a cup, I’m taking it home)


She said, “excuse me you have got to be kidding?”
I said nope happily married with five children
Now if I can just have my coffee I’ll be on my way
She got emotional and said that I had made her day

Odd... she hid her tears of sadness behind a laugh
I high tailed out of there and went to get some gas
Card reader was broke, I had to go inside
Oh Snap! The cashier had that look in her eye

As I went to pay, I could sense the question coming
Apparently lots of cashiers needed lovin
Didn’t want to break another ladies heart today
So i said, Mam before you ask I got something to say…

CHORUS
Sorry mam but I’m happily married
I’m going home to my wife and family
Besides, you are much too old for me
I know you wanna ask, it’s very flattering

...Joke, I don’t think you understand
Their just trying to get your number so that you can get benefits
Exactly! And I’m happily married. I’m not interested.
I’m married to a lady… Lady K
