"I Lost All My Money at the Cock Fights" as written by and Knudson Bayles....
All the boys are begging for her,
Reaching long to grab her clothes to
Pull her in every direction and
Throw some game that won't win.

This girl, she's looking at me
A glance over then down at her drink.
I think's got the right idea.
I think's got the right idea.

'You come with me, we should leave,
There's nothing interesting in this joint,
We pull stares from the whole crew,
And you ace like you never even knew.'

We move out to the street
It's raining hard - coming down in sheets.
She takes my hands, pulls hard,
And then we make the dash to the car.
I think's got the right idea,
I think's got the right idea,
'We're not going anywhere,'
She said, 'We'll just stay here.'

'You come with me now, we won't leave,
I'll show you something interesting.'

Her hair streaked her shirt with rain
And that did something to me.

    General CommentMinus The Bear's music is so vivid, and it plays out like a short movie... Jake Snider paints a beautiful picture with every word that he passionately sings :) I love this band :)

    General CommentAll the boys are begging for her, the typical case when the most beautiful girl in town looks a nerdy n takes it. We dont deserve that moment, we just live it ... and dont ask. Minus the Bear is my faking fav band now... even when i listen to a looooooot of music.... they sold out in my heart
