I Always Knew

5 Chinese BrothersBuy this song

I always knew you were too good for me 
I always knew you knew it too 
I did what I could, I knocked on wood, I hoped you understood 
But I could never measure up to you 

Now it scares me when I hear you talk 
I know I never had a chance 
But I'd rather be a nickel on the sidewalk 
Than a penny in a rich man's pants 

Now you've got someone to take care of you 
He gives you everything you need 
All those pretty things, engagement rings, all tied up in strings 
I only gave you what I got for free 

I always knew you were too good for me 
That's what you always used to say 
It's so hard to protect your self respect, 
In fact that's all I kept 

And that's the only thing you gave away
