Lyrics:

If I'd have known I'd be sitting here next to you,
in this smoky old bar;
I would have changed my shirt, and washed my pants,
maybe even combed my hair;
I might look like somethin' that the cat drug in,
baby let me tell you why,
My hearts been broken & I'm still choking on the tears of her goodbye...

There was screamin & yellin' and lots of go to hell,
and I don't ever want to see you again;
On my way out the door I was almost floored by,
a flying frying pan;
I never meant for it to end this way,
but with me it seems to be a tradition;
But I survived, I'm still alive,
I ain't ready for demolition...

Cho:
My paint's a little peeled, but I could be healed by a woman's gentle
touch...
My foundation's cracked, but I could be put back, it really wouldn't
take that much..
So pick me up, take me home, dust me off a little and you'll see,
I'm a fixer-upper but I could be your lover, I just need a little TLC..

Well honey it's only been a couple of months,
since that night we met;
I'm workin through all you're self improvement books,
and I know I ain't there yet;
I'm gonna try to quit chewin' and spittin',
and puttin my boots on your table;
And I'll get a job soon, honey I swear,
'cuz I'm ready, I'm willin', and I'm able...

Cho:
My paint's a little peeled, but I could be healed by a woman's gentle
touch...
My foundation's cracked, but I could be put back, it really wouldn't
take that much..
So pick me up, take me home, dust me off a little and you'll see,
I'm a fixer-upper but I could be your lover, I just need a little TLC..
