Throwaway
Used to play the Cassanova
Smoother than the Bossa Nova
Love to play the Romeo
But I never need a home to go to

I'm so greasy, I'm so slick
I leave no traces, I just get out quick
I use cheap champagne
Brief affairs and backstage love

But a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway
A love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway

I've played the fool, I've played the clown
I'm an easy lover when I come to town
It's a fashion, it's a buyer's market
To bust it up before it's really started

I'm incurably romantic
If you leave, me I'll go frantic
With cheap champagne
Brief affairs and backstage love

But a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway
Yes, a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway

If the glove still fits, don't call it quits
Don't throw your life away
'Cause a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway, one for the money

Used to play the Cassanova
Faster than a roller coaster
I gave you the best years of my life
Don't you kick me in the gutter

'Cause a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway
Yes, a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway

Yes there's many a slip between a cup and lip
Don't let it slide away
'Cause a love like this is much too good
To ever throwaway, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on
Ah, yeah, much too good, much too good
Much too good
