Lyrics

Pick Pick Picked


I do not need the aggravation
I do not need the disrespect
I’ve given my all and all and all
And you still treat me like a wreck.
I guess you don’t think I’m ready
Guess you don’t think I’ll go
But all the love you never give me
I pick pick picked up on my own.

No I do not think you know him
He doesn’t do the things you do
He’s a kinder cut of critter
He thinks I’m way too good for you
I guess you don’t think I’m ready
Guess you don’t think I’ll go
But all the love you never give me
I pick pick picked up on my own.

(Instrumental Solo)


You know my best friend always tells me
Don’t take a man who’s only cute
Even if he’s got the big eye
And wears a shiny mohair suit
But I don’t listen to my bestie
I’m drawn to cute and mean
And I keep falling for their smooth lines
And then regret this final scene.

And I don’t do need the aggravation
I do not need the disrespect
I’ve given my all and all and all
And you still treat me like a wreck.
I guess you don’t think I’m ready
Guess you don’t think I’ll go
But all the love you never give me
I pick pick picked up on my own.
