Have a Ball

Lyrics by Scott Schafer

You check the rearview 

You got to put your makeup on 

You’re trying to find that smile 

But you’re humming that same old sad, sad song

 

You’ve got to head on home 

Back to where his money flows

Honey, we all need that validation for our souls

But let me tell you

 

I used to have it all

I used to have a ball

 

Until I spent it all on fancy things

On foolish thoughts of chasing crazy dreams

The lives you read about 

In those magazines

 

I came to bat swinging for the wall 

When I come up short

I could see how all the fanfare

Don’t buy no love at all

 

But if you stand with me 

If you take the fall

When we’re no longer beautiful

I'll still be the best friend, money never had

 

These days I don’t care much for them fancy things

For them foolish thoughts or chasing crazy dreams 

But I’d give you anything

To watch you shine tonight 

 and every night

 

There ain’t no sense in hiding 

These are just the vehicles we arrived in

You know I used to have it all

I used to have a ball

 

Until I 

Spent it all on fancy things

On foolish thoughts of chasing crazy dreams

The lives you read about

In those magazines  

 

I came to bat swinging for the wall 

When I come up short

I could see that all the fanfare

Don’t buy no love at all

 

But if you stand with me 

If you take the fall

When we’re no longer beautiful

I'll still be the best friend, money never had

 

These days I don’t care much for them fancy things

For them foolish thoughts or chasing crazy dreams 

But I’d give you anything

(Because)I believe I see the light

 when I watch you shine at night

 

There ain’t no sense in hiding

Just use those pretty legs and dive in

Even if we had it all

I’m sure we’d have a ball

 

Until we

Spent it all on fancy things

On foolish thoughts of chasing crazy dreams

Like the lives you read about

In those magazines 

 

We’d come to bat swinging for the wall 

When I we come up short

We’d remember all the fanfare

Don’t buy no love at all

 

But if you stand with me 

If you take the fall

When we’re no longer beautiful

I'll still be the best friend, money never had

 

These days I don’t care much for them fancy things

For them foolish thoughts or chasing crazy dreams 

But I’d give you anything

To watch you shine tonight, and every night
