None of the Above
Copyright 2020 by Rob Roper

She wanted a man
who wore a tie to work
two kids and a dog
a house in the 'burbs
And all I wanted
was none of the above
She said goodbye
so much for love

I got a one-room apartment
and a beat-up old car
I work in a factory
a disgrace to my family
Everybody told me
you gotta bleed for your art
Well, I bled a lot
but I never got far

(instrumental bridge)

I bet she found a man
who wears a tie to work
she's got two kids and a dog
and a house in the 'burbs
I should have never said no
to all of the above
I could have been happy
I could have had love

Her divorce went fast
once the kids were grown
she moved into the city
and got a place of her own
She thinks about a boy
who wanted none of the above
I bet that he's happy
I bet he found love
