Lyrics:
Perfumed letters of an earlier time.
Memories of ladies now lay far behind.
Too many lovers makes her heart go blind.
Well, I should've known better.
I was so foolish and I chased the sun.
Young once and fine, now my days are done.
Too many lovers makes you on the run.
Well, I should've known better.
Well, I tried too hard and spoke too soon.
Oh, I got too drunk and shot the moon.
All the while I'd look at you and you'd say,
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better.
Oh baby, yes I do
Well darlin', now I do.
I jump from roof tops both far and wide.
I stole their kisses and I robbed them blind.
Leaving lovers in a bed of lies.
Well, I should've known better.
I was a lion tamer long ago.
A veteran in the art of fooling ghosts.
Much too lonely for their hearts to know.
Well I should've known better.
Go ahead!
Well, I tried too hard and spoke too soon.
Oh, I got too drunk and shot the moon.
All the while I'd look at you and you'd say,
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better.
Oh baby, now I do
Well darlin, now I do.
Yes, sir.
Now, an old man and nothing more.
Much too tired, oh, to even scores.
My wife, she left me back in '94.
Well I should've known better.
And as I sit within my shallow grave.
Looking for answers, oh, I should've saved.
Just out of heaven's reach, amazing grace.
Well I should've known better.
Well, I tried too hard and spoke too soon.
Oh, I got too drunk and shot the moon.
All the while I'd look at you and you'd say,
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better.
Well baby, now I do
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better baby.
Oh, you should've known better.
Oh baby, now I do.
Well baby, now I do.
