"You Know Me Better Than That" as written by Tony Haselden and Anna Lisa Graham....
Baby, since you left me, there's somebody new
She thinks I'm perfect, I swear
She likes my body, my class and my charm
She says I've got a confident aire
She respects my ambition, thinks I'm talented too
But she's in love with an image time is bound to see through

[Chorus]
Oh, you know me better than that
You know the me that gets lazy and fat
How moody I can be, all my insecurities
You've seen me lose all my charm
You know I was raised on a farm
Oh, she tells her friends I'm perfect
And that I love her cat
But you know me better than that

I miss picnics and blue jeans and buckets of beer
Now it's ballet and symphony hall
I'm into culture, clean up to my ears
It's like wearing a shoe that's too small
Oh, I caught her with an issue of Brides magazine
Starin' at dresses and pickin' out rings

[Chorus]

Oh, she tells her friends I'm perfect
And that I love that cat
Oh, but you know me better than that

    Haha What a great song. George Strait is amazing. The guy just tells stories about life and they are all soo true.

    General Commentto me the overall meaning is obvious- new relationship w/ higher class female...

    and then, deeper, he's speaking to his ex...it seems like theyre more friends now, and he's just sharing the joke w/ her, but under it all, he still misses her b/c he could be himself w/ her...and not worry about playing a role.
