Thought I'd write a little country song.
Since most of those mournful country
songs come from codependent relationships,
I thought I'd get right to the point. Remember,
I just write 'em; don't participate in 'em.

 Codependency (Song)

You and I are just the same,
our love/hate relationship is all to blame.
I love to hate you, it's just me,
all a part of our… codependency.

You left me for that other one,
thought you would have both me and your fun.
That fell through and you came crawling back,
I took you back in 'cuz of what I lack.

Oh… I thought your love was real,
but, I'm just stuck under your heel.

You know I hate you when you drink,
come home drunk and raise a stink.
Don't know what I'll do when you're gone,
without you I can't carry on.

Stole my keys and took my car,
'Times I don't know who you are.
Wrecked it before you got home,
'Specked I'd still take you for my own.

Oh… I thought your love was real,
but, I'm just stuck under your heel.

You went out with your friends,
landed in jail; it never ends.
'Specked me to bail you out,
so I did, you worthless lout.

You called from the hospital the other day,
said you were near death; I should pray.
I prayed for your death, so I'd be free.
Paid your bill; praising your honesty.

Oh… I thought your love was real,
but, I'm just stuck under your heel.

On your stupid, stiletto heel...
your heel, dammit…
your god damned heel!

Sad and funny at the same time. Who hasn't experienced some of these feelings of love and hate intermingled? And I have a feeling here that this "relationship" can last for a while!

EEE-haw & rattle snakes lol
a country toe-stepper fer sure fer sure
aside from the humor of this delightful country parody
toxic relationships are so emotionally brutal, I had the hardest time
back in 1984 breaking myself away from someone who would not let go & move on, it's so self depleting to the individual and too
it's a shame those types cannot see the self inficting destrution
in possesiveness and control.

Good one Ron, Just for you Ron, Steal Your Shoes

Steal Your Shoes

No more stilettos,
Find one with pumps,
Women with mood swings,
Blame the time of the month.

Hang on to that hat,
Those cowboys wear,
Women with stilettos,
Donít like to share.

Being codependent,
It takes two,
Donít let this woman,
Steal your shoes!

All that's missing is the music, Ron, though the words come through strong on their own - funny and sharp. Who's you nomination to be the singer? My money's on Clint Black.
Great work!

I just bet you had a gleeful chuckle while you composed this one, Ron. I enjoyed your word, "'Specked" that is joyful coinage, and I like your reminder in the introduction "Remember, I just write 'em. Very Goood!! ~~ Diana

Ron, I think you've just summarized every country song written in the past 50 years. The stiletto heels, however, suggest an insight that could only come from...experience.
