"The Cheapest Key" as written by and Kathleen Margaret Edwards....
A is for all the times I bit my tongue
B is for bullshit and you fed me some
C is for charity and now you're mine
D is for dollars, but you're counting dimes

E is the exit sign backstage at shows
F is my favorite letter, as you know
G is for God loves a patient man
Who spends his days living in ego land

You always write it in the cheapest key
You always blame it on the cheapest key
You always play me in the cheapest key

They say the start's always the hardest part
But like you know, baby, I'm all warmed up
Sometimes I wanna shout your name out loud
And let them in on what you're all about

You always write it in the cheapest key
You always blame it on the cheapest key
You always play me in the cheapest key

But don't get me wrong
Here comes my softer side and there it goes
'Cause I've been on the road too long to sympathize
With what you think you're owed

You always write it in the cheapest key
You always blame it on the cheapest key
You always play me in the cheapest key
The cheapest key, the cheapest key

    General CommentWow, I cagn't believe that no one has commented on this song. Any ways, the meaning of this song should be quite hjhhgjghj dfdfdf oblivous, just about a girl who is with a terrible guy. What I would like to comment on however is the cleaverness
    of the A B C D E F G part of the song. I believe that she used those letters because they are the letters of music
    notes and as this song is called the cheapest key, listing all of them is quite approperate. Just my imput

    General CommentGood catch on the A-G being the music scale. I wondered why she stopped at G, but that fits perfectly.
