I see you sittin' there, givin' me that certain stare
And it's plain to see that chair is there for me
But I'll stay here on this stool, and watch the boys shoot pool
'Cause, girl, I'm not the fool you think you see

I've played your game before and girl I know the score
Is gonna be a whole lot more than I can pay
You think that I'm alone, but there's a wife and kids at home
So listen close, and hear me when I say

I'm just here to have a beer, and a little bit of cheer
I don't need to hear your stories and your lies
Honey, I'm not blind, and I don't need to read your mind
To know what's goin' on behind those big brown eyes
I know you've got a plan, and you think that I'm your man
But you don't understand what's really goin' on
I've got someone of my own, and she's got supper on at home
And I'm just here to have this beer, then I'll be gone

I really must confess the way you wear that dress
Is definitely messin' up my mind
Girl, I can't deny, that look that's in your eye
Is temptin' me to try to make you mine

It's been a long hard day, and I just drew my pay
And I could stay and play awhile with you
But my conscience tells me no, so I guess it's time to go
And you can show your smile to someone new

I'm just here to have a beer, and a little bit of cheer
I don't need to hear your stories and your lies
Honey, I'm not blind, and I don't need to read your mind
To know what's goin' on behind those big brown eyes
I know you've got a plan, and you think that I'm your man
But you don't understand what's really goin' on
I've got someone of my own, and she's got supper on at home
And I'm just here to have this beer, then I'll be gone

Yeah, I've got someone of my own, and she's got supper on at home
And I'm just here to have this beer, then I'll be gone
