"What Else Would You Have Me Be?" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
I gave you everything I stole
And you stole your heart away from me
A pair of thieves and don't you know
That's the way that we will always be

You used to love me
Running wild and sleeping with the thieves
C'mon baby, what else would you have me be?

And I'd take you out at night
Buy you cigarettes and whiskey drinks
Always end up in some fight
Ain't that the way good love has gotta be?

You used to love me
A drunkard running wild out in the streets
C'mon baby, what else would you have me be?

c'mon baby won't you dance
Make good use out of these drunken feet
And I won't mention that other man
Don't you whisper no girls names to me

You used to love me
Running wild and sleeping with the thieves
C'mon baby, what else would you have me be?
