lyrics

She don't want me round no more, she don't want me round no more
Sold my soul to the package store, she don't want me round no more
Gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent

Well I flew off the handle bout an hour ago
I was screaming so loud, nearly smashed my phone
Walked up Brighton, straight to the L
And a half pint of whiskey put on it's spell
When I got back, all my stuff's laying on the porch

My guitar, my dreams and all them bottles
'78 Puch with a torn up throttle,
Lenovo Thinkpad, 2005,
and my crushed up spirit layin' by it's side
She kept the $300 Tiffany's bracelet

She don't want me round no more, she don't want me round no more
Sold my soul to the package store, she don't want me round no more
Gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent

Well I went up the street, I thought I had a friend
Could I use your couch? Cause I could use the rest
'Said something bout a $100, I said
It's dangling around the wrist of my woman now, bub
He said if you don't got dollars, boy you don't make sense

Well I huffed, and puffed and sorta roughed him up
His gal came round started calling the cops
I dropped my stuff and I started to run
Cause I don't trust no man with no gun
At this point all I had was my guitar

She don't want me round no more, she don't want me round no more
Sold my soul to the package store, she don't want me round no more
Gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent

I went to Tedeschi's all out of tobacco
All I could afford was some rolled up hassle
I went outside, lit a match on the curb
I always blow smoke when I feel hurt
Started singing this song in the baritone you hear now

Sooner or later, a crowd gathered round
Singing and hollering, boy what a sound
Bums were handing me vodka nips
And a girl eased up to me with ruby red lips
Said come with me boy, I'll make you feel at home

She don't want me round no more, she don't want me round no more
Sold my soul to the package store, she don't want me round no more
Gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent

Well that girl I met turned out batshit crazy
Loose in the tooth she had two eyes lazy
17 cats, jumping over bottles
So I screwed the pooch, and went down to the Model
It's that hipster bar right behind Twin Donuts

There I met my girl and her bracelet
I told I loved her, and how much I meant it
She rolled her eyes and said: "Do you really?"
I said "I'm homeless hon, I'd do anything"
'Slapped me 'cross the face and I move back home

She don't want me round no more, she don't want me round no more
Sold my soul to the package store, she don't want me round no more
Gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent

Now my hometown, just and intersection
Four liquor stores to a church, you betcha
Lots of trees and plenty of lakes
And lots of time to make bad mistakes
Wouldn't you know it there ain't a goddamn girl around

Take it from me boys, it ain't worth it
She want ya to go dancing you just twerk it
She want more money man, you just fork it
She want ya quit drinking man, you just cork it
Cause I'm broke without a gal, and it's mighty mean

Cause I'm broke without a gal. and it's mighty mean!

She don't want me round no more, she don't want me round no more
Sold my soul to the package store, she don't want me round no more
Gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent
Yeah, I gave her my heart, she's giving me a bill for rent
