lyrics

She wasn't looking for trouble when she walked into the bar
But she found it shooting pool and sucking on a big cigar
Her trailer was shaking with the love they were making
They were getting it on all night
Three months later on and she's calling him a mother
Looking for her ex-lover with a Louisville Slugger
No more feeling flirty, no more getting down and dirt
'Cos the whole thing's ending in a fight

She says "Don't come knocking on my front door
Thinking I'm gonna let you in
And don't go calling me on my cell
Thinking I'll take you back again
'Cos there'll be pigs flying by on a cold day in Hell
Before I ever let you see that I'm beat
I ain't leanin' on another now, I'm standing on my own two feet

She was playing "Real Housewives" out in West LA
Caught her husband in their bedroom with his new PA
So she razored up his suits and his snakeskin boots
And threw the whole caboodle in the pool
Now she's headed back to momma with her foot down hard
In his Mercedes Benz and with his credit card
She knew that he was lying now she's done some simplifying
He never should have took her for a fool

She says "Don't come knocking on my front door
Thinking I'm gonna let you in
And don't go calling me on my cell
Thinking I'll take you back again
'Cos there'll be pigs flying by on a cold day in Hell
Before I ever let you see that I'm beat
I ain't leanin' on another now, I'm standing on my own two feet

Well she was onlt seventeen, a real Daddies girl
When he pulled up in his truck and tried to rock her world
She was almost taken in, by a dimple and a grin
'Till she found out he was seeing her best friend

She says "Don't come knocking on my front door
Thinking I'm gonna let you in
And don't go calling me on my cell
Thinking I'll take you back again
'Cos there'll be pigs flying by on a cold day in Hell
Before I ever let you see that I'm beat
I ain't leanin' on another now, I'm standing on my own two feet
