Here To Listen


Lyrics

"Here To Listen"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Whenever you've had a problem, babe

I've tried to help you find a solution

But no matter what it is that I suggest

To you it's just air pollution


I've learned, baby, slowly, over the years

That what you really want is my ears


I'm here to listen, to everything you say

And pay attention, I'll never look away

I'll put down my guitar, and turn off the TV

I'm here to listen, understand and agree


Whenever you've had a bad day, babe

I've tried to make you feel good again

I offer you my body and mind

But you never want either of them


I've learned, baby, slowly, over the years

That what you really want is my ears


I'm here to listen, to everything you say

And pay attention, I'll never look away

I'll put down my guitar, and turn off the TV

I'm here to listen, understand and agree


You don't need me for my money

Don't want me for my looks

You don’t wanna hear what I have to say

And you don’t want me readin’ no books

But I'm not good for nothin'

I figured out what I'm worth

As long as I keep my big mouth shut

I know why I'm on this Earth


I'm here to listen, to everything you say

And pay attention, I'll never look away

I'll put down my guitar, and turn off the TV

I'm here to listen, understand and agree


Who needs your girlfriends, when you’ve got me

Why pay for a shrink, when I'll do it for free

I'm here to listen,… understand,… and agree

Brief Description

A country-flavored song about a man's secret to success in his relationship with a woman:  knowing his place.  It's got some humor in it, if you "listen" the right way.  It's hard to know the definition of irony, but there might be some of that in it too.
