Before He Cheats

Have you ever been cheated? Have you ever cheated? Well, as a person who has been both, I’ll say both sucks. At first that I had been cheated before, I thought it would feel great when I could be the cheater or the third person, just to, well, you know, feel better, even the score, get some new perspective, and shits like that. Well, I can’t say that it didn’t feel good at first, but soon after I learned that it didn’t get better. I did even the score, in some way. I did get some new perspectives, eye-opening ones. But definitely didn’t feel better. See, the thing is, a cheater is just an empty shell. They just don’t know what they’re looking for, yet. And worse, they don’t have any idea what they really need for life. Been cheated on before doesn’t give you right to be a cheater or the third person. Just for the sake of yourself, or your next person if we think ahead, think before you cheat. If you’ve been cheated once and for the first time ever, don’t let it sucking you up. It stinks and hurts so much too, I know, but you must be growing strong for the sake of no one else but yourself. Grow strong and make him thinking before he cheats.

I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats. I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires. Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats.” –Carrie Underwood, Before He Cheats

Today’s song for Growing Strong is titled “Before He Cheats”, performed by Carrie Underwood, American singer who rose to fame as the winner of American Idol in 2005. The country pop-rock track was released on August 19th 2006 as the fourth single taken from her debut album, “Some Hearts”. It was written by Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear.

Thing about women in love is, they tend to forgive and forget easily. Thing about cheaters is, there’s really no stopping them, unless we do something about it, and though, well, even that’s not a guarantee that they won’t do it again. “Before He Cheats” is lyrically speaking about a woman taking revenge on her unfaithful lover, could be boyfriend or husband. “Right now he’s probably slow dancing with a bleached-blond tramp, and she’s probably getting frisky. Right now, he’s probably buying her some fruity little drink, ‘cause she can’t shoot whiskey. Right now, he’s probably up behind her with a pool stick, showing her how to shoot a combo. Right now, she’s probably up singing some white-trash version of Shania karaoke. Right now, she’s probably saying, ‘I’m drunk’, and he’s a-thinking that he’s gonna get lucky. Right now, he’s probably dabbing on 3 dollars worth of that bathroom Polo. And he don’t know,” that the way women’s intuition works is more terrifying than how Sherlock Holmes’ brain thinks.
Women always know, whenever something is off, something is not right, something wrong is going on, and else. And when a faith is broken, women know. And when women are in rage, the result could be even more horrifying than Bruce Banner turning into the Hulk. “I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats. I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires. Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats.” When women discover that they’re being cheated, there are at least five stages they’ll face afterward: denial, anger, fear, bargaining, and acceptance. Can’t believe they does that, it makes us so mad, but we can’t leave them, how about we just forgive and forget. It’s a long way to go, girl, but when it turns out that nothing could make the cheater stop, then just accept that we need to move on. “I might’ve saved a little trouble for the next girl, ‘cause the next time that he cheats, oh, you know it won’t be on me. No, not on me.”

“Right now he’s probably slow dancing with a bleached-blond tramp, and she’s probably getting frisky
Right now, he’s probably buying her some fruity little drink, ‘cause she can’t shoot whiskey
Right now, he’s probably up behind her with a pool stick, showing her how to shoot a combo
And he don’t know

That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats

Right now, she’s probably up singing some white-trash version of Shania karaoke
Right now, she’s probably saying, “I’m drunk”, and he’s a-thinking that he’s gonna get lucky
Right now, he’s probably dabbing on 3 dollars worth of that bathroom Polo
Oh, and he don’t know

I might’ve saved a little trouble for the next girl
‘Cause the next time that he cheats, oh, you know it won’t be on me, no, not on me

‘Cause I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all 4 tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Oh, maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats”
