A Jerk Like You

You wake me up to tell me you’re tired
And then you fall right back to sleep
You snore louder than my lousy heater
You drink, you smoke, and you’re cheap

You’re a pain in my ass
always asking for water
when I get you a glass
you want it hotter or colder

I’m a strong woman but I’m weak for a jerk like you

When I come home the dishes are dirty
You’ve rented a movie I don’t want to see
“Don’t watch it if you don’t like it”
But it’s my god damn TV!

You’re a pain in my ass
always asking for water
when I get you a glass
you want it hotter or colder

I’m a strong woman but I’m weak for a jerk like you
