Track Name: Southern Girls
Been scheming since you were young
of the pipe organ playing and releasing of doves
wearing white with your hair done up
making your parents proud

When you're looking for just anyone
keep your eyes peeled for a sign from God
getting hitched will be so much fun
in time you can turn it to love

You've been waiting your whole life
Just to be a submissive wife
Giving up on what you like
To settle for what is at hand
This has always been the dream
To make it last fulfill his needs
This will give your life meaning
How can you pass up this chance?

College set you up with a gullible jerk
got a four-year degree but never planned to work
maybe substitute teach till you get knocked up
or find something easier to do

Patience gave way to good timing
but you wouldn't put out till you got that ring
now he's working overtime while you watch tv
and stay at home eating for two

SOUTHERN GIRLS wait their whole lives
Just to be submissive wives
Giving up on what they like
To settle for what is at hand
This has always been the dream
A good wife must fulfill his needs
This will give your lives meaning
So how could you pass up this chance?

We both know there's no mister right
You choose someone and then survive
Having kids will help you get by
Till you can grow old and die

If you stay in love with his ideal
You won't care how you feel
Believing won't make it real
You choose to live the lie
Track Name: Too Tired To Do It
I'm too tired to break up
I haven't the strength to fight
When it's so much easier
To lay in your arms tonight
I don't want to start this now
I don't want to make you cry
I'm too tired to break your heart
If I have to explain just why
I'm too tired to break up, I'll stay for one more night
In the morning I'll wake up and make things right

I'm too tired to break up
Let's do it some other time
When I'm feeling stronger
When you don't think you'll mind
I don't want to do this now
Let's wait for another day
Then it will be easier
Cause I'll have all the words to say
I'm to tired to break up, I'll stay for one more night
And in the morning we'll wake up
I'll forget how I thought we could make up
In the morning we'll break up and say goodbye
Track Name: In You I Rest
Some folks fight just to feel passion
A heated spat to pass this time
But with my woman it's easy
We never raise our voice
In whispers alone it is revealed

In you I will rest

The night we met you started a new chapter
And I told everyone I'd met my girl
We knew our wait was over
So we called off the search
We weren't even looking

In you I will rest

Project what you want on me
Take all the time you need
To believe in what you see

One nervous first date couldn't slow the feeling
And a whole week of nights made it secure
I told you I would move with you
I'd go wherever you go
I said 'Darling this is real, just take my word'

And in you I will rest
Track Name: Since I Left Town
I hear you've been hanging all around my girlfriend
Ever since I left town
Now I can't imagine just why you would do that
Askin' if she wants to step out
Now don't be concerned man it won't be a problem
As long as none of it's true
Cause I'll kick you in the teeth
If you don't leave her alone
Try me, see what I do

Now baby, don't worry, this blood is not mine
My talk got a bit out of hand
Plus there're still some things I don't get
That you never told me
Some things I don't quite understand
Now don't be scared dear it won't be a problem
I just want to hear if from you
Oh it's quite an awful way to be treatin' your sweetheart
So sorry, but what could I do

Night's almost over, there's no time to dig more
There won't be enough room for the two
So your bodies in his truck at the bottom of the lake
And the sun's coming up without you
Track Name: Moses! Don't Hit That Rock!
Moses don't hit that rock
or you'll never get into that promised land x3
The Lord gave it to you but now he's gonna take it away

Aaron don't make the golden calf
or you'll never get into that promised land x3
The Lord gave it to you but now he's gonna take it away

Don't complain to the Lord bout the manna from heaven
or you'll never get into that promised land x3
The Lord gave it to you but now he's gonna take it away

Don't listen to the words of the other ten spies
or you'll never get into that promised land
Don't listen to the words of the unfaithful spies
or you'll never get into that promised land
Don't listen to the words of the other ten spies
or you'll never get into that promised land
Joshua and Caleb are the only ones he's letting in

Moses! Don't hit that rock!
Track Name: Don't Make Me Choose
It's been a few months since I got married
And there's things I left behind
Like I cut back on my gamblin'
And times I stayed out all night
While at first I was excited to see what habits I could break
There were certain things that I didn't want to change

She told me 'Baby I think it's important
That you still have your fun
But there're some minor adjustments
When you commit to someone
You can still watch your football
You can still dress the same
But if you wanna get some lovin' you'll shave'

Don't make me choose
Don't make me choose
Don't make me choose
Don't make me choose
Don't put me to the test
To see which I love best
Cause I'm not really sure what I'll do

Now this problem's been growing
Between me and my girl
Where at first she was supportive
Now she says what she prefers
All my friends say in a marriage
You can't always have your way
You pick your battles and on this one you should cave

Don't pressure me cause I'm not sure which way I'll lean

If it's you or the moustache
If it's you or the moustache
If you're up against the moustache
You'll lose
