Shoot Me

Richard Groff 1957 (Pottstown, Pa.)



My heart is broken and I just want to cry
My wife has been sleeping with another guy

She works all night and she sleep all day
She wants to get paid and she wants to get laid

She told me she never even liked me
She only got married to see how it would be
