“I win”- definitely- applicable to my life

December 6, 2008

i don’t mind waiting in line
no, no
i don’t mind if the bills pile up and the work is slow
i don’t mind the gas or the groceries or the grind
long as I’m with you i’m having a good time

i don’t mind the stoner waiter or the poorly cooked food
i don’t mind little miss kitty or her knucklehead dude
i don’t care if every last person here is ugly and rude
long as i’m with you i got a good attitude
long as i’m with you

we could be stuck in traffic for over a week
with a car full of quintuplets who are all cutting teeth
and around my neck could be a flaming christmas wreath
and i’d be smiling under
smiling underneath

i don’t mind waking up early for a flight that’s delayed
i don’t mind our weeks’ vacation was chilly and gray
i don’t mind the traffic cops or the TSA
long as i’m with you i’m having a good day
long as i’m with you

i don’t mind spilling my hot sauce onto my white shirt
i don’t mind that twinge when i walk in that knee that i hurt
i don’t mind my gums peeling back or my hair getting thin
long as i’m with you, i win
long as i’m with you

we could be stuck in traffic for over a week
with a car full of quintuplets who are all cutting teeth
and around my neck could be a flaming christmas wreath
and i’d be smiling under
smiling under
smiling underneath
