about

People always wonder why Sherry would stay with me so long. Here's one answer.

lyrics

That’s What I Do

Can’t hammer a nail
Can’t fix the fence
Can’t hang a picture
But in my defense
I can write you a love song
So deep and true
I can make you laugh,
I can make you cry
That’s what I do

Can’t promise the moon
Can’t pay the rent
I’ve followed my dream
At your expense
But I can write you a love song
So deep and true
I can make you laugh
I can make you cry
That’s what I do

And it goes:
Fa La La La La
It goes:
Fa La La La La

Now I’m kind of rough
Full of scratches and dents
And you’re so beautiful
This should make no sense
But I can write you a love song
So deep and true
I can make you laugh,
I can make you cry
That’s what I do
I can make you laugh,
I can make you cry
That’s what I do

And it goes:
Fa La La La La
It goes:
Fa La La La La
