How can you say that you love me
When you never look me in the face
How can you say that you need me
When you've been messing 'round all over the place

I went downtown yesterday
And I was walking in the marketplace
All the women laughed at me
They whispered that I was a disgrace

You've been out all night drinking again
And you never even bother to call
Been crossing blades with God knows who
You're headed for your rise and fall

Sooner or later, I'll wake up
And wipe the sleep out of my eyes
Later that day, when you wake up
You'll be in for a big surprise

You talk about yourself all night
When really, you are such a bore
You give me flowers to my face
Behind my back, you call me a whore

I've had enough of your God knows what
I think it's time for you to leave
I've forgiven you too many times before
This time, you get no reprieve

The bed's too big without you
But I suppose it will have to do
Better to lay in an empty bed
Than spend another night beside you

People talking all over town
About the way you've been putting me down
People talking all over town
They don't wanna see you around
