Hooray And Hallelujah

This song is by James Reyne and appears on the album Speedboats for Breakfast (2004).

She was the queen of all deception
I was a fool from out of town
After she showed me 'round reception
Whenever she could she'd put me
Down so I was on my knees
I'd like a lime with my coconut please

Hooray and Hallelujah
Today it happened to ya
I was wrong
Shoulda looked right through ya
Said so long
To you ya shrew ya

I've seen more than I remember
I remember more than I have seen
No use for Gideon
January through December
Through every hotel, motel, Holiday Inn
Throw them TV's outside
It's Women's Weekly nationwide

Hooray and Hallelujah
Today it happened to ya
I was wrong
Shoulda looked right through ya
Said so long
To you ya shrew ya

And that good-bye note
She didn't send it
But when she said good-night
Boy, she really meant it
And then she took my heart
Without a kiss
Hissing vicious in my ear
You won't be needing this

I used to be a bona-fide winner
Strut into a room and laugh so loud
Right place, right time
A phenomena
Not just another face there in the crowd
Who passed out on the floor
The gravy train don't stop here anymore
