5 chinese brothers – i always knew lyrics


paul foglino

i always knew you were too good for me
i always knew you knew it too
i did what i could, i knocked on wood, i hoped you understood
but i could never measure up to you

now it scares me when i hear you talk
i know i never had a chance
but i’d rather be a nickel on the sidewalk
than a penny in a rich man’s pants

now you’ve got someone to take care of you
he gives you everything you need
all those pretty things, engagement rings, all tied up in strings
i only gave you what i got for free

i always knew you were too good for me
that’s what you always used to say
it’s so hard to protect your self respect,
in fact that’s all i kept
and that’s the only thing you gave away
