I took my girl to go bowling downtown at the red door after an argument I started cause I thought she didn't like me anymore I can't help it sometimes I feel pitiful and of course she's so young and beautiful

I bought us two glasses of coke that's her favorite and I wanted to make up for earlier but I dropped her glass and it broke so I just gave my glass to her

she laughed and so did I in our lane and then she went to a vending machine to buy a candy cane but right next to that was a boy I knew with a spring in his hand playing a country pinball machine called 'stand by your man' I saw him talk to her but I stayed in my lane and played my game steady and was thinking of a day when I'd be too old to throw a ball this heavy

but I guess I'm young now so it's easier to knock 'em all down then I looked and saw her say to him 'you're really hittin' that ball around' and he's lookin' at her the way I did when I first met her I could see in his face white flowers and cups of coffee and love letters

I was sorry to interrupt their game but I went and did it anyway I dropped my red bowling ball through the glass of his machine I said 'are you quick enough to hit this ball, mr. clean?' I was scared to lose her so I couldn't help being mean

and that ended both of our games I said I was sorry but my girl left with him just the same I thought how much I hate when love makes me act this way I was bent over a broken pinball machine in a bowling alley and I threw it all away
