Brought It On Myself


Lyrics

"Brought It On Myself"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Back when I was a young man

I thought I knew it all

Finding girls to go home with

Was never any trouble at all

I brought it on myself

Yes, I brought it on myself

I brought it on myself

And that was how my trouble began


When I got a little older

I'd learned a lesson or two

Never brag about my conquests

And slip out in the morning dew

You know I brought it on myself

Oh yeah I brought it on myself

I brought it on myself

Had no one to tell my troubles to


But the girls they all talked to each other 

And that was how my legend grew

Their friends they would all come and ask me

When’s it my turn to go home with you?

I guess I brought it on myself

Yeah I know I brought it on myself

Well, I brought it on myself

Couldn't help the trouble I got in


When I finally felt like settlin' down

With just one girl in my life

Every time I thought I had one picked out

She didn't want to be my wife

Suppose  I brought it on myself

I know I brought it on myself

I brought it on myself

My reputation was the trouble for me


So here I am a single man

But on the road I never get the blues

I still have fun the only way I know

Rockin’ and rollin’ girls everywhere I travel to

Brought in on myself

Yep, I brought it on myself

Oh, I brought it on myself

Someday this trouble will catch up with me
