You Can Love Yourself

My baby she wrote me a letter
She didn't call me on the phone
Five little words was all she wrote
See ya later I'm gone

She had no explanation
About why she had to go
Well I can't take a joke,
But I can take a hint
She don't love me no more

But if nobody loves you
And you feel like dust
On an empty shelve
Just remember
You can love yourself

My mother says
She loves me
But you know
She could be jivin' too
And everybody's always criticizing
Everything that I do

I work 9 to 5, do the best I can
Try to please the boss
I bought a big ol' house,
And a brand new car
And then he laid me off


Everytime I meet a lady
I wanna try to get to know
Either I'm too small
Or she's too tall
She's rich and I'm po'
So I called my old friend
Hazel Mae
Asked her out for a little date
She said: “I'm married now
And I got three little kids,
Boy ya just a little too late“

(Chorus 2x)
