Million to One Shot

You can size me up if you want to
And read my resume through
I know I’ve made some bad choices
But, they seemed like the right thing to do

If you need em I’ve got references
I’ll hand you over my black book
The folks in there, yeah, we’ve had our differences
And with some of them I’m still on the hook

For things I’ve said, and did, and was
It’s given me ample reason to pause
And to reflect and address my flaws

So, please accept me for what I’ve got
Don’t reject me for what I’m not
I’ve got us all worked out
It’s just a million to one shot
But I’ll take them odds exactly
And I’ll gladly bet the pot
And I’ll say so matter of factly
We got a million to one shot

So, if you’ve read my qualifications
You seen what I can do
Got the skinny on my past relations
Yes, everything they said is true

I can be a bit of a bastard
And a whole lot of crazy to
But, if you call my brothers up and ask him?
They’ll say “He’s not crazy, just slightly askew”

But aren’t we all just one move away
From losing our minds from the daily day to day
On the balance beam together we sway

So, please respect the good I’ve got
Don’t try to change all my have not’s
So, holy long-shots Batman
It’s just a million to one shot
So, don’t you give me that soul mate stuff
I hear it’s cool, but still not enough
That true love wedding knot
It’s a million to one shot

After all, what have I done that’s been so wrong?
Kept my beliefs and character strong
As the years keep rolling on and on

So, you can size me up if you have to
You gotta do, what you gotta do
I’ll be waiting for you here, after
Your deliberations are through
We’re not the best pair on the block
But, we might be the only chance we got
Think of us like a romantic comedy
Called a million to one shot
A million to one shot
You gotta be in it to win it
