In which I'm either an old fuddy duddy or just a decent human being

I just gotta say, I cannot believe there's a song out there that's based on a man talking to a girl on the phone while his other "girl" is "in the next room."

Maybe it's just me and maybe I'm getting old but ew!

I know the music business is tough but is that what you really want to be known for? Singing about being a cheater? Or damn close. With all the "I have to whisper" and "you make it hard to be faithful" I'm just disgusted.

I don't even want to type the name of the band or the song (for fear a Google search land some fifteen year old here looking for those lyrics, which I'm sure would get me lots of mean emails) which is a shame because a. dude can sing and b. the song has a decent hook but still, so not okay.

Should some teenager land here looking for those lyrics, I'll say two things: 1. Cheating is not cool, ever. 2. If you are talking to another girl while your girlfriend is in the next room, she knows. She may not act like it and she may not care, but she knows. In which case, you are screwed either way because she will either break up with you and smash the headlights out of your Camaro or you are dating an idiot. See, screwed.

Alright, I'm finished.

I'm with you I don't think its fuddy duddy I think it's having honor. I hope the other woman leaves him and the "angle" doesn't take him back!!

(deleted the rest of the rant 'cause it went on too long)

Let's just say I agree with you 100%

Since comments are not indexed like the blogsite I'll say I think the band is Hinder and I hae that song.

I agree with you...although there is one out there by a woman, can't think of who it is, singing about how she can't stand hurting him, but that she is cheating and knowing that it would kill him if he stop with one or the other!!

Ok, I gotta say I'm hooked now. I can't help but keep coming back here. Such wit... The mention of a Camaro is absolute gold!
