I was telling one of my kids about a guy i used to work with who cheated on his wife about three times a week but couldn't comprehend how she could have "an affair on him" This called to mind an old Bobby Bare song (IF THAT AIN'T LOVE WHAT IS). These two memories inspired this silly song.

They said I might get sued if I use the name
So it’ll have to stay a mystery.
We were shoppin at a major discount chain
When my wife skipped out on me.
She was over in the bras and panties
I was browsin through the huntin wear
When some sneaky snake from lingerie.
Waltzed her right out of there.
It’s a sad sick feeling
To get dumped in the discount store.
Just sorta sets your head to reeling
That aint the kinda bargain I was looking for.
I can’t imagine what got in her head
Don’t know what she was thinking
Musta been something that I said
The other night when I was drinkin.
She said for better or for worse,
But I guess maybe she lied,
Just because I drink and curse
She left me high and dry.
I’m just a wounded bird in a rusty cage
Tryin to deal with all this pent up rage.
Always treated her the best I could
Long as she did all the things that I thought she should.
Don’t know why she’d run away
