"Cheatin'" as written by Brett James and Don Schlitz....
You say your everyday
Is a bad dream that keeps repeatin'
Baby you should have thought about that
When you were cheatin'

How do you like that furnished room
The bed the chair the table
The TV picture comes and goes
Too bad you don't have cable
How do you like that paper plate
And those pork and beans you're eating
Maybe you should have thought about that
When you were cheatin'

How do you like that beater car
I think it's fair we traded
Your pickup truck is running fine
It's a cozy ride for dating
Yes I've been out a time or two
And found the comfort I've been needing
Maybe you should have thought about that
When you were cheatin'

You made your bed
And you're out of mine
You lie awake
And I sleep just fine
You've done your sowin'
Now you can do the reapin'
Maybe you should have thought about that
When you were cheatin'

Now what became of whatshername
After she spent all your money
Did she leave you just like you left me
Sometimes life is funny
Yes I'll be glad to take you back
Just as soon as I stop breathing
Maybe you should have thought about that

Oh maybe you should have thought about that
Maybe you should have thought about that

When you were cheatin'
When you were cheatin'

    General CommentThis song is basically the depiction of a woman who's significant other cheated on her and she kicked him to the curb. Now he has nothing to his name, including the woman he cheated on his girlfriend/wife with, and she is telling him that maybe he should of thought about the consequences before pursuing the action.

    I love the line where she says she'll take him back when she stops breathing.
