Lyric "Not What I Had In Mind"

Just thought I'd have a little fun and paint the town
I always said someday I'll walk the line
But now she's gone and I'm the bluest guy around
And that's not exactly what I had in mind.

I thought that I could play the field and be a clown
I broke the heart that loves me anytimes
Yes, I know that I'm the biggest fool in town
And that's not exactly what I had in mind.

I didn't mean for thing to get so out of hand
I always meant to make it up in kind
But now she's gone, she hate the very sight of me
And that's not exactly what I had in mind.

--- Instrumental ---

I told myself, go play around you're young and free
To late I found that I was, oh so blind
I lost a love I never did deserve at all
But that's not exactly what I had in mind.

No, that's not exactly what I had in mind...
