Lyrics: We're even now
Can we just drop the whole thing?
We're even now
No need to waste your time
When you broke my heart I knew
That hindsight's a better view
And I hope by now you realize it too

We're even now
Don't even think about it
We're even now
What comes around goes around
When you saw me with somebody new
We were having a grand debut
You see the game you play can be played by two

It's childish to be spiteful
Can't we be friends?
Let's bury the old hatchet
Here's where the bad blood ends
We're even now
We're even Steven
We're even now
And I'm believin'
It's good we're even now

We're even now
Let's just forget about it
We're even now
Go bug somebody else
When you slashed my tires I knew
What I though were idle threats were true
And you'll act on them after you've had a few

We're even now
I'm done stalking your condo
We're even now
You won't catch me snooping around
Your security system works well
Your neighbors are annoyed as hell
And your obedient Doberman knows my smell

It's childish to be spiteful
Can't we be friends?
Let's bury the old hatchet
Here's where the bad blood ends

We're even now
We're let's call the ballgame
We're even now
Let's call it same same
It's good we're even now
I'm glad we're even now
Telling you we're even now

About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
