Reach Around Jerk

Reach Around Jerk

Sheryl Crow

Wake me up when you are over
'Cause I don't want to hear you say
That you've got worries on your shoulder
Well, I'd love to say they'd up and go away

I ain't never seen you cryin'
But that don't mean that you can't feel
And maybe deep inside you're dying
That may be the only thing that's ever real

[Chorus]
It's a reach-around jerk in a button-down shirt
Talking sweet to keep all the little people happy
When the talk is cheap, the shit gets deep
Better face reality, everybody's had a bad day or two
They don't treat you like the way you think they should
So you lick your bitter wounds, turn and blame the government,
Establishment, Hold your breath so no one sees you when you're down

Wake me up when you are over
Let me know how long it took
If you ever need my sympathy
Honey, here's how deep you're gonna have to look

I know when you get older
You'll learn the art of how to please
But right now you're just getting colder
And my love is gonna Send you to your knees

[Chorus]

If you need me, I am able
And if you need me, I am here
But when you reach across the table
I'll be leaving all my tears inside my beer
