Blake Shelton’s If I’m Honest album is one of his best ever and will likely be talked about for quite a while.
One of the songs critics and fans are having a field day with is “She’s Got A Way With Words.” Without listening to the words and just focusing on the music, one would think it’s a sweet, sexy song about a lady poet, maybe. It’s not about that.
The lyrics suggest it’s a little more cutting. Edgy, even.
When you put two and two together
You figure out love’s got four letters
I shoulda known that when I met her
But she had to spell it out for me
After all that second guessing
It’s been a long hard history lesson
Hell that’s a class I got an F in
But now I understand perfectly
She put the her in hurt
She put the why in try
She put the S.O.B. in sober
She put the hang in hangover (hangover)
She put the ex in sex
She put the low in blow
She put a big F.U. in my future
Yeah she’s got a way
She’s got a way with words
Yeah she’s got a way with words
Little words like “I” and “do”
Lying, cheating, screwed
Yeah all the words I thought I knew
They got a brand new meaning now
Blake performed the song during a recent appearance on the “Ellen Show” and if this song is about what everybody thinks it is about (a famous country music singer who’s name rhymes with Sharanda Samdert)– he’s got to start selling it a little more. It almost feels like he doesn’t want to be singing it.
