I never did it
No I won't admit it
Why should I lie for you anymore?
You never loved me
You pushed and you shoved me
I seen a woman I never saw
I saw you laugh when the knife was twisted
It still hurts but the pain has shifted
I'm looking back at the time that drifted by
But I won't cry for the wasted years
'Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

Feeling neglected
Used and rejected
You need a shoulder to lean upon
Maybe you've picked him
Found your next victim
Don't worry someone will come along
I broke the spell that you kept me under
I'd had enough of the rain and thunder
I lost track of the time and I wonder why
But I won't cry for the wasted years
'Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

I'll sit around and drink a few more beers
Until the memory just disappears
'Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears

    General CommentThis tune's 'bout a fellow named Martin
    Who's just getting over a partin'
    And these lyrics he wrote
    are a harsh farewell note
    To the gal who has got him disheartened

    General CommentThis song came out around 1982 or 1983 when you were one. I don't know if it is still in print but it is a great song and if you can ever get a chance to listen to it, it would be worth your time.
