(Lou Dalgleish)

Everybody thinks the nicest man you’d ever meet
Is the one that placed this ring upon my hand
But a love that’s true can sometimes be lost in deceit
And if you’re looking for the lie well here I stand

I’m seeing black and blue and purple
‘cause he keeps seeing red
I look up at the church and tower and steeple
And I wonder who’s better off dead
He’s down on his knees and begs forgiveness
and that’s the worst part I dread
But no I won’t stand by him
No matter what Tammy said

Everybody thinks he’s full of charm and treats her right
But that’s not how it looks from where I stand
When her turns to take her arm and holds it just too tight
I want to tell the world just what I’ve planned

When he leaves the bar and staggers home on Friday night
He’s going to see the colour of my eyes
‘cause a man should know the difference between wrong and right
And he’s going to learn the truth before sunrise

She’s seeing black and blue and purple
‘cause he keeps seeing red
I look at the church, the tower, the steeple
And I wonder who’s better off dead
He’s down on his knees and begs forgiveness
And that’s the worst part I dread
But no she won’t stand by him
No matter what Tammy said

He tells me he’s sorry
He says that he’ll try
But I say enough, I’ve got to be tough
This time it’s goodbye

I’m seeing black and blue and purple
‘cause he keeps seeing red
I look up to the church and tower and steeple
And I wonder who’s better off dead
He’s down on his knees and begs forgiveness
and that’s the worst part I dread
But no I won’t stand by him
No matter what Tammy said
But no she won’t stand by him
No matter what Tammy said
No I won’t stand him
No matter what Tammy said
