Just Because He Got a Lady
Lyrics
He's got a lady

Just because he got a lady
Don't mean that he ain't lonely
He ain't the only
Company she keeps

He stares off in the distance
When you ask him about his lady
Because she ain't his lady anymore
Anymore than he's her man

Chorus
Ain't no consolation
No matter what you say
He's smiling at you through those tears
But the hurt and pain won't go away

He's looking for his lady
For the love that's missing from his life
And no one seems to notice anyway
He's still calling her his wife

Just because she is his lady
Don't mean that he's the only one
She prefers the company
Of strangers in her bed

She don't even call him by his name
She likes to play her dangerous games
And nobody gonna change her
Ain't no remedy, ain't no cure

Chorus
Ain't no consolation
No matter what you say
He's smiling at you through those tears
But the hurt and pain won't go away

You can see his heart is broken
Into little bits and pieces
That wedding ring that he wears on his finger
Don't mean a damn thing
It's better to be lonely
Than to love a cheating heart
It's better to be lonely
Than to get a broken heart
