Garrison Doles: Song Lyrics

Whenever I'm With You

(click title to read lyrics)
Words and music by Garrison Doles

Congenial society is what I’m talkin bout
Folks just seem to natchly coalesce
It comes to this society I can’t seem to work it out
My personal relations are a mess
Who comes to my rescue
Girl you’re my saving grace

refrain
Everybody, everybody
Likes me better whenever I’m with you
They put up with my density
And all my eccentricity
They treat me just like I’m family
When I show up with you

Everybody, everybody
Likes me better whenever I’m with you
They always make a place for me
Invite me in and cherish me
They never set the dogs on me
(the dogs would even love on me - this world holds no hostility)
When I come round with you

This is not a mystery, it’s plain for anyone to see
Cause Baby when you’re with me well I like me better too

bridge
Primitive existence
Growling like a bear in a cave
Somehow you sooth my savage breast
Make me want to behave - when we’re in public

Don’t claim to have a diplomatic warm and winning manner
Prickly porcupine is more my style
I try to get control of my irascible demeanor
Never seem to come up with a smile
Who comes to my rescue
Girl you’re my saving grace

repeat refrain
