about

Another song off the 2004 release "Reach For The Sky". Admittedly, not every female's favorite song, but a live show favorite! Also, Michelle Preisler McComber shows her talented voice off once again.

RED-HANDED
Words and music by Patrick Fleming, Jr.
© 2004 By Patrick Fleming, Jr.

You said I flipped you off last night but I was only giving the finger to
The car that that came ‘round the corner and nearly hit me and you
You said I called you too early this morning
But I was up and I thought you might be yearning to
Get back together and get into the groove

‘Cause I can’t keep on making excuses
You called my bluff, no, there’s no use

I was caught red-handed in the cookie jar
I was caught on tape stealing a candy bar
I was drinkin’ from a bag in parking lot
I was saying I loved you when I loved you not

You say you saw me at the coffee shop but it wasn’t me with that blonde you see
‘Cause I was shopping with my mom and dad down at Macy’s
What I buy? How’d I know she was blonde?
No, I didn’t know that you talked to my mom
So let’s just forget I ever said a goddamned thing

‘Cause I can’t keep on making excuses
You called my bluff, no, there’s no use

I was caught red-handed in the cookie jar
I was caught on tape stealing a candy bar
I was drinkin’ from a bag in parking lot
I was saying I loved you when I loved you not

There was a time when I would tell the truth
But that was way back in my youth
You know I just turned twenty-two
So what makes you think I’m gonna listen to you

You said I called you too early this morning
But I was up and I thought you might be yearning to
Get back to the business of the finger I flipped at you

‘Cause I can’t keep on making excuses
You called my bluff, no, there’s no use

I was caught red-handed in the cookie jar
I was caught on tape stealing a candy bar
I was drinkin’ from a bag in parking lot
I was saying I loved you when I loved you not

I was caught red-handed in the cookie jar
I was caught with my pants down behind the bar
It wasn’t cigarettes, no, I was smoking pot
I was saying I loved you when I loved you not

I was caught red-handed
I was saying I loved you when I loved you not…
