A is for all the times I bit my tongue
B is for bullshit and you fed me some
C is for charity and now you're mine
D is for dollars, but you're counting dimes

E is the exit sign backstage at shows
F is my favorite letter, as you know
G is for God loves a patient man
Who spends his days living in ego land

You always write it in the cheapest key
You always blame it on the cheapest key
You always play me in the cheapest key

They say the start's always the hardest part
But like you know, baby, I'm all warmed up
Sometimes I wanna shout your name out loud
And let them in on what you're all about

You always write it in the cheapest key
You always blame it on the cheapest key
You always play me in the cheapest key

But don't get me wrong
Here comes my softer side and there it goes
'Cause I've been on the road too long to sympathize
With what you think you're owed

You always write it in the cheapest key
You always blame it on the cheapest key
You always play me in the cheapest key
The cheapest key, the cheapest key
