"Consequence" as written by William Daniel and David Brown Forbes....
Hey girl I never said I'd be there every night
When I come home late it's fisticuffs till light
Now you slap me with a summons I must serve
When you caught me with your friend,
you cut me at the nerve

Stop right there, 'cause you were wrong
Do you believe in consequence?
I gave you all I have, and for so long
I believe in consequence

When did I promise that I always be
Wasn't it clear, it clouded up your memory
But still you tell me that it's all that I deserve
When you swung the gavel 'round,
you struck me at the nerve

The straight and narrow is another deadly curve
When you drove your steely knife in,
you struck me at the nerve
