Lyrics

Hot cup of coffee on the bedside stand
He didn?t mean to make her cry
It?s another day now, won?t she understand?
Of course, there?s a reason why

He said her face was too made up
Her smile it was too bright
She walked too far away from him
He wants her to be right there by his side
Her skirt it was too short
Her shirt it was too tight
Why?d she have to talk that way?
Everything she did she was just asking for a fight

He?s gonna make it up to her, he?s gonna take her out tonight
She?ll wear that dress she knows he likes
They?ll catch a movie or they?ll dance the night away
It?s gonna be alright

He lands his first punch in the driveway
They haven?t even made it to the car
She slides in beside him
His driving gloves, they never leave a mark

He?s taking her back home now, far from all those prying eyes
He?ll teach her what it means to be a good wife
No nosy neighbors, no one to hear her cry
This is her day this is her life

Because her face was too made up
Her smile it was too bright
He saw her looking at that guy
She ?s not gonna make a fool of him tonight
Her skirt it was too short
Her shirt it was too tight
Her heels they were too high
She steels herself it?s going to be a long, long night

Hot cup of coffee on the bedside stand
She knows better than to cry
