"XXX" as written by and R. Galleti D. Austin....
Trisha works the triple-X place out on the interstate
She was trained to be a teacher, but she needed to get paid
She tells me, "Never fall for love, boy, and you'll never be betrayed
Mine's a hard life, but I've chosen to keep going"

She asks me, "Is it better in your dreams?
That surely ain't the way it is with me
No, my visions are dimmer than my reality
Mine's a hard life, but I've chosen to keep going"

And I've got a little boy at home
I keep praying to No One that when he's grown
He's gonna be hones unlike any of the bastards I have known
Mine's a hard life, but I've chosen to keep going

Go on and show me the bright side, and I can tell you why it's a lie
There ain't one thing in Odesa, Missouri gonna go my way before I die

"They all say I should sing another tune
But tell me what's a girl like me to do:
I don't suffer fools gladly and consider lovers fools
Mine's a hard life, but I've chosen to keep going"

Ours was not much of a romance
It had not been much of a lap dance
But before she'd let me get up from the table
Trisha made sure that I had paid her
For all her advice
