Used to have a woman loved me hard and slow
Why I ever left her I will never know
But I saw a pretty baby coming down the line
Had to go and make that little girl mine
Now I'm feeling so low and sad
'Cause I got what I wanted
But I lost what I had

Baby waited tables on the midnight shift
Stayed home sleeping while I got ripped
I wanted a woman who could run with me
Found one that drove me
Straight to my knees
Now I'm feeling so mean and bad
'Cause I got what I wanted
But I lost what I had

So I went looking for someone to tell
Ended up down at the Heartbreak Hotel
Lobby was filled with men so sad
Got what they wanted
Lost what they had

Dogs see a cat, you know he gotta catch it
The moment a man got an itch
You know he gotta scratch it
And if you're like that boy
You better quit
Better watch what you're after
Cause you just might get it
But then you'll be so lonely and sad
When you get what you wanted
But you lose what you had

Now if you got a woman
Who stands by your side
Don't go and ruin it with the roving eye
If you're feeling weak
And you were needing help
Just keep on reminding yourself
That if you get it
You're gonna be sad
When you get what you wanted
But you lose what you had
Yeah when you get what you wanted
But you lose what you had
