"I hate to disappoint you ..."
No one ever likes to find that note beside the bed
And maybe you thought leaving me was leaving me for dead
But later that same weekend, you never would have bet
A dance, a drink, and two strong arms can make a girl forget

It ainít that tough, it ainít that tough
Time for fighting dirty
Take off those kid gloves
It ainít that tough getting over you

What was I to do, with a cold and empty home
While you were with the boys I was all alone
Well, you can keep your football and you can keep your beer
Find someone else to fetch it Ďcause this ainít your winning year

Take what life gives you, give it to Ďem back in spades
When life leaves you lemons, pour some cotton-pickiní lemonade -- itís a game, where the winner stays sane

It ainít that tough, it ainít that tough
Kept it all together, When the going got rough
Cause it ainít that tough getting over you

Never had a doubt that I would bounce right back
New love come around, put me right on track
Better to start over, thereís times when Ďnoughís enough
I couldnít have said it better, hell it ainít that tough

It ainít that tough, it ainít that tough
Who you think youíre kidding? You called that love?
It ainít that tough getting over you
It ainít that tough, it ainít that tough
I hate to disappoint you, but it didnít mean that much
It ainít that tough getting over you
