I Tried to Be Good

Hey baby, there is an old saying
When you drink the water
Remember the spring
You must have forgotten
Cause you didn’t come home again
Baby, I hope you don’t mind
I am giving you back this ring

Chorus
Baby, this thing is not working
And I’ve tried to be good
Like a good woman should
And now I’m looking for a younger man
The cougar that I am

Verse 2
Baby, there is a war going on
Between my heart and my body parts
There are no reasons for pretenses
I have come to my senses
Too many times I haven’t been fulfilled
Now if you won’t or can’t
I’ll find someone that will
Baby, this thing is not working
And I’ve tried to be good
Like a good woman should
And now I’m looking for a younger man
The cougar that I am

Bridge
When you drink the water
Remember the spring
Cause mother has come to her senses
And is giving you back this ring

Verse 3
You’ve been in and out of my life
Like a revolving door
Now I can’t this anymore
So excuse me as I take leave
I’m no longer that little naive
Woman you met years ago
Baby, it’s time for me to go
And it was tearing me apart
Cause the love we once had is long gone

Chorus
Baby, this thing is not working
And I’ve tried to be good
Like a good woman should
And now I’m looking for a younger man
The cougar that I am
