“I’m Living Up to Her Low Expectations” Lyrics

Found myself some brand new friends
Took up a few bad habits again
I partied every single night this week

Late for work three days in a row
When she left she was right I know
‘Cause she said I’d never amount to anything

I’m living up to her low expectations
I’m becoming everything she said I’d be
I’m living up to her low expectations
‘Cause her low expectations are high enough for me

I had to drop that night school class
Who’s got the time when you’re havin’ a blast?
The waitress here thinks I’m the cutest thing

Boss told me didn’t get that raise
But what the heck? That’s okay
Because I never did deserve it anyway

I’m living up to her low expectations
I’m becoming everything she said I’d be
I’m living up to her low expectations
‘Cause her low expectations are high enough for me

Yes, her low expectations are high enough for me

“Too Much Fun” Lyrics

Blue lights flashing in my rear view
The sheriff said, “Boy I should’ve known it was you
You got fourteen people in the back of this truck
I warned you twice and now I’m writing you up”
I said “Officer, what have I done?”
He smiled and said, “Boy you’re having too much fun”

Too much fun, what’s that mean?
It’s like too much money, there’s no such thing
It’s like a girl too pretty with too much class
Being too lucky, a car too fast
No matter what they say, I’ve done
But I ain’t never had too much fun

There was a fight Friday night at the stumble inn
Me and ‘ole Harley just had to join in
Next thing you know we were both seeing stars
They threw us out, closed down the bar
I said, “The Long Branch is open the night’s still young
And we ain’t never had too much fun”

Too much fun, what’s that mean?
It’s like too much money, there’s no such thing
It’s like a girl too pretty with too much class
Being too lucky, a car too fast
No matter what they say, I’ve done
But I ain’t never had too much fun

I’m a holly terror, a tornado
Wind me up, turn me loose and let me go

Too much fun, what’s that mean?
It’s like too much money, there’s no such thing
It’s like a girl too pretty with too much class
Being too lucky, a car too fast
No matter what they say, I’ve done
But I ain’t never had too much fun

No matter what they say, I’ve done
‘Cause I ain’t never had to much fun
Give me the reigns and let me run
‘Cause I ain’t never had to much fun

Rest in Peace, Daryle. Share this update with other traditional country music fans.
