Bowling Shoes

This song is by Fountains of Wayne.

Hey now baby don't be shy
I saw you with another guy
He was short but his hair was long
He had your sunglasses on

Picked you up in a German car
He took you out to an Irish bar
You drank bar from a plastic cup
Till you were barely standin' up

And now you've got some explaining to do
So come on baby won't you tell me the news
I don't know who you think you're trying to fool
But I know where you've been going so don't bother with the bowling shoes

Tuesday night you were out again
With a bunch of your stoner high school friends
Called me up said you might be late
And you ended up in another state

And now you've got some explaining to do
So come on baby won't you tell me the news
I don't know who you think you're trying to fool
But I know where you've been going so don't bother with the bowling shoes

I want a love that will last forever
But it seems like you and me just can't quite get it together
I want a lover I can take for granted
But you give me the blues each time I catch you red-handed

Hey now baby don't you lie
I saw you with another guy
He looked dumb but it sure did smart
When you held his hand and you broke my heart

And now you've got some explaining to do
So come on baby won't you tell me the news
I don't know who you think you're trying to fool
But I know where you've been going
So don't bother with the bowling
Know where you've been going
So don't bother with the bowling
Know where you've been going
So don't bother with the bowling shoes
