Cause Only Two Of You Had Dinner

Cause Only Two Of You Had Dinner

Jim has asked us to feature songs about various mealtimes, and I went with a song about a woman confronting her lover about his cheating. It is a great track, by one of the most successful recording artists of all time.

I thought Whitney Houston was incredible, and her deterioration on a personal level distressed me because it was truly heartbreaking. Still her music lives on and is an absolute joy to listen to. This is one of her later tracks “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay”.

It will be a busy weekend for me (Wimbledon Tennis Championships starts tomorrow and we have lots of guests visiting) but I look forward to seeing all of the other songs on Jim’s theme when I have a moment.

Friday night you and your boys went out to eat
Then they hung out
But you came home around three
If six of y'all went out
Then four of you were really cheap
Cause only two of you had dinner
I found your credit card receipt

It's not right
But it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway
Pack your bags up and leave
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right
But it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway
Close the door behind you
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone
Than unhappy

I'll pack your bags
So you can leave town for a week
The phone rings
And then you look at me
You said it was one of your friends
Down on 54th St.
So why did 213
Show up on your Caller I.D.

I've been through all of this before
So how could you think
That I would stand around
And take some more
Things are gonna change
That's why you have to leave
So don't turn around to see my face
There's no more fears and tears
For you to see

Was it really worth you going out like that
See I'm moving on
And I refuse to turn back
See all of this time
I thought I had somebody down for me
It turns out
You were making a fool of me

  1. Whitney is singing this to a lover that has been playing around, and she wants him to know that she has the credit card receipt, so he should pack his bag and get out. What kind of idiot would ever cheat on Whitney?
