Look what you've done
You gigolo
You know that I
Loved ya hon
And I didn't wanta know
That your cool, seductive serenade
Was a tool of your trade
You gigolo

Of all the riches
You've surveyed
And all that you can lift
I'm just another dollar
That youve made in your long long grift

Look what you've done you gigolo
Another hustle has been run
But now you oughta know
That this fool can no longer be swayed
By the tools of your trade
You gigolo

I'm just another John you gypped
Another sucker stiffed
A walk-on role in the script
Of your long long grift

The love that had me in your grip
Was just a long long grift
