Should I Betray
								Should I betray you to Charlene?
She doesnВ’t know the things IВ’ve seen
She must still think youВ’re Mr. Clean
Just like the man she wed

Should I betray you to your spouse?
The wife who waits back at the house
She doesnВ’t know that youВ’re a louse
ThatВ’s not the man she wed

She doesnВ’t know the deals you make
The throats you cut, the vows you break
To buy up some old ladyВ’s stake
Quick before sheВ’s dead

She doesnВ’t see your oily smarm
You pour on in the place of charm
When youВ’ve got some shopgirl by the arm
Steering her into bed

That virgin forest you chopped down
To build another ugly town
IВ’ll tell your wife you bribed them round
To back your plan instead

But perhaps she doesnВ’t want to see
The heel that you turned out to be
ThatВ’s why sheВ’ll take a gin or three
To drive doubts from her head

While sheВ’s working hard enough
With housework, kids, and all that stuff
YouВ’re out there with some bit of fluff
Cruising on the Med

She thought the leopardВ’s spots were paint
She thought sheВ’d turn you to a saint
Kept hoping, though the hope grew faint
That you were better bred
