Lynda
(Toni Land ©1999)

Why can't I be like Lynda?
She don't take no guff,
She don't take no crap.
She don't take nothin' lying down.
I'm still trying to forgive you
I'm still finding reasons
I'm still explaining your running round,
why can't I be like her?

Why can't I be like Lynda?
She's out there complainin'
She's out there yellin'
She's out there screamin' when things are wrong
I'm just here prayin'
Silently hoping
Creatively writing it in a song, why can't I be like her?

I'm sleeping on a bed of nails
I'm walking on burning red hot coals
Shouting out I love you when my story's all full of holes, why can¹t I be like her?

Why can't I be like Lynda
She's planning her future
She knows what she what she's gonna do
She won't quit till she's got it all
I'm filled with good intentions
Overflowing with apologies
I'm stuffed with excuses and Tylenol, why can't I be like her?

Chorus

Why can't I be like Lynda?
She's getting all dressed up
She's going out to parties
Going to out smoking her cigars
I'm waiting for you to call me
Waiting for you to ask me
Hoping you come drive me in your car, why can't I be like her?

Chorus

Why can't I be like Lynda 3x,
Why can't I be like her (over verse )
