"Been There Done That" as written by and Blair/van Zant Daly....
I've seen the devil,
Stared him straight in the eyes.
Danced in his fire on my darkest nights.
Laid in his garden an' I drank his wine.
Slept with temptation 'til I found salvation:
It almost ate me alive.

Oh, I've been there done that, had my thrill
Ain't goin' back again.
I was the life of every party,
It nearly did me in.
I was the baddest man that you've ever seen,
Lord, I wrote the book on sin.
Yeah, I've been down that road,
I ain't goin' back again.

I've caused more damage than a hurricane.
I've broke your heart an' didn't feel a thing.
Then walked away and cursed your name in vain.
But with you as my witness,
You gave me forgiveness,
Now I've got a second chance.

Oh, I've been there done that, had my thrill:
Ain't goin' back again.
I was the life of every party,
It nearly did me in.
I was the baddest man that you've ever seen,
Lord, I wrote the book on sin.
Yeah, I've been down that road.

He's knockin' at my door,
Ain't walkin' round here no more.
Been there, done that,
Ain't goin' back again, no!

I was the baddest mother that you've ever seen,
Lord, I wrote the book on sin.
Been there, done that,
Ain't goin' back again.

I was the life of every party,
It nearly did me in.
I was the baddest man that you've ever seen,
Lord, I wrote the book on sin.
Yeah, I've been down that road.
I ain't goin' back again,
Oh, no!

Been there, done that.
I was the life of the party, yeah.
Been there, done that.
