better things to do lyrics – terri clark

don’t tell me the reason that you’re calling
is to see if i’m all right since you’ve been gone
’cause i know you and i know why we’re talking
you’re wanting me to say i’m barely hanging on
well, maybe that was true for a night or two
but now, i got better things to do

[chorus:]
i could wash my car in the rain
change my new guitar strings
mow the yard just the same as i did yesterday
i don’t need to waste my time crying over you
i got better things to do

maybe when i don’t have so much going
or quite so many irons in the fire
i’ll take the time to miss you like you’re hoping
but now, i can’t put forth the effort it requires
well, i’d love to talk to you, but then, i’d miss donahue
that’s right, i got better things to do

[repeat chorus]

check the air in my tires
straighten my stereo wires
count the stars in the sky or just get on with my life
i don’t need to waste my time crying over you
i got better things to do
i got better things to do
