Say I have known some
Less than I should 
Say I have known some
Too well for my own good
Say I'm a saint of mercy 
Say I'm a whore 
I've been a lot of things 
But never yours

I wear my mama's dress 
Her finest clothes
 Daddy showed me outside 
To meet you on the front porch
I laugh at all your jokes 
But you look bored 
I've been a lot of things but never yours

You never cross my mind
You can be sure
You'll never catch my eye
 Waiting for you watching the door
I let you hold me
Dry lip kiss me on the dance hall floor 
I've been a lot of things 
But never yours

 Never yours [Repeat: x8]

So you say you won
It was a bet
A game of pool or cards 
I repay my family's debt
I let you lie beside me
With no remorse 
I've been a lot of things 
But never yours
