Just thought I'd have a little fun and paint the town
I always said someday I'll walk the line
But now she's gone and I'm the bluest guy around
And that's not exactly what I had in mind

I thought that I could play the field and be a clown
I broke the heart that loved me many times
Yes, I know that I'm the biggest fool in town
And that's not exactly what I had in mind

I didn't mean for things to get so out of hand
I always meant to make it up in time
But now she's gone, she hates the very sight of me
And that's not exactly what I had in mind

I told myself, "Go play around you're young and free"
Too late I found that I was oh so blind
I lost a love I never did deserve at all
But that's not exactly what I had in mind
No, that's not exactly what I had in mind
