Woulda - Shoulda - Coulda

I know

I woulda - shoulda - coulda - done better

Could of been a better man to you

Oh baby, for this I am sorry - sad but true

But you know as I know - as everyone else knows

You - shoulda - coulda done better by me too

And if you woulda - I just might have been a better man for you



We both shoulda known better

And yes

We both woulda - shoulda - coulda done better


We’d have fewer regrets)

But now you say - what can we do

What should we do - now that it’s over

And we’re thru


I wish I could - I wish I may - I wish I might

I wish I would - just stop thinking

Stop dreaming - stop screaming - all through the night


And I know

I woulda - shoulda - coulda - done better

And I know

You - shoulda - coulda done better by me too

But now it’s over and we’re thru

What can we do

Agree with M.E. - the words have a rhythm and a catchy
intonation suited to a song.

This sounds like a song to me, possibly reggae or Rhythm and blues. It certainly got that feel to it for me. Either way a fine poem

Play the market eventually you'll here "woulda - shoulda - coulda" (Where I got my inspiration). Guess it holds true for people as well as money.
