Mark Chesnutt — Don't Know Why I Do It lyrics

(Tony Martin / Mark Nesler)

Have you ever stared down in the bottom of a coffee cup
And discovered that you got no reason staying up
Right at the moment when
The caffine is kickin' in

So you break down and give an old girlfriend a call
Then after two hours of hearing her mindless talk
You remember what you dumped her for
And you wish you hadn't opened that door

Chorus:
I do it and I don't know why
Hate to admit it but I think that I
Got something rollin' round loose inside
That never was screwed down tight
I don't know why I do it
But I do it all the time

Have you ever worked hard
To line your pockets with dough
Then let a little girl and love start burning a hole
Knowing that she'll break your heart
And max out your credit cards

Chorus:
I do it and I don't know why
Hate to admit it but I think that I
Got something rollin' round loose inside
That never was screwed down tight
No, I don't know why I do it
But I do it all the time

--- Instrumental ---

Have you ever fallin' for a girls thinkin' she's the one
And you get a funny feeling that your ramblin' days are done
You can tell she loves you so much
You have to go and screw it up

Chorus:
I do it and I don't know why
Hate to admit it but I think that I
Got something rollin' round loose inside
That never was screwed down tight
No, I don't know why I do it
I do it I do it I do it
I do it and I don't know why
I got a habit of wreckin' my life
Keep leaning left when I want to go right
You know it isn't like I haven't tried
I don't know why I do it
But I do it all the time

(Why do it, Don't know why I do it)
I don't know why I do it,
But I do it all the time....
