Lyrics
I'M UPPING MY STANDARDS (SO UP YOURS)


Six-thirty, dishes dirty, fix my face so I look pretty
Made you dinner here at home, I'm left sittin' all alone
I hate waitin', contemplatin', what to do is so frustratin'
You don't show me no respect, it's 8 o'clock you're not home yet

---Somethings gotta give
---This ain't no way to live

I'm setting my sights a little bit higher
Don't want a spark, I want a fire
A little ain't enough, I'm wanting more
You think you're good but I'm going one better
Don't want the vinyl, I want the leather
Forget the meow, this cat's gonna roar
---I'm upping my standards...so up yours

Sick of copin', tired of mopin', won't waste time always hopin'
That someday you'll see the light, your bulb is dim you're not too bright
I'm done takin', this heart breakin', moving plans are in the makin'
Sorry doesn't work no more, I'll show myself to the door

---It's the final time
---I've made up my mind

I'm setting my sights a little bit higher
Don't want a spark, I want a fire
A little ain't enough, I'm wanting more
You think you're good but I'm going one better
Don't want the vinyl, I want the leather
Forget the meow, this cat's gonna roar
---I'm upping my standards...so up yours

(solo over bridge)

I'm setting my sights a little bit higher
Don't want a spark, I want a fire
A little ain't enough, I'm wanting more
You think you're good but I'm going one better
Don't want the vinyl, I want the leather
Forget the meow, this cat's gonna roar
---I'm upping my standards...so up yours
