Let's start by correcting ya tone
Lower ya finger, don't be comin' at me
With condescending demeanor
We both know that ya dead wrong
And what makes it worse you don't even have the nerve
To ever say that you're sorry

You're never wrong and I'm never right and
You win all the rounds in every fight
That's why

Can't stay another day when you're always
Getting your way, you just keep getting your way
You just keep getting your way, ya selfish!
So I decided not to get in your way
It's time to do it my way and that means
Getting away from you, ya selfish!

How is it that you can look at us and only see you
You can look at one but, never would you ever see two
You can live a lie and never be true
It's so funny now, how clearly I can see you

You're never wrong and I'm never right and
You win all the rounds in every fight
That's why

Can't stay another day when you're always
Getting your way, you just keep getting your way
You just keep getting your way, ya selfish!
So I decided not to get in your way
It's time to do it my way and that means
Getting away from you, ya selfish!

No, we don't need to talk
Ain't nothin' left to say
You got everythang ya want
Go ahead and have ya cake
I know what's best for me
We go our separate ways
Leaving you with everything
Even all the pain

Can't stay another day when you're always
Getting your way, you just keep getting your way
You just keep getting your way, ya selfish!
So I decided not to get in your way
It's time to do it my way and that means
Getting away from you, ya selfish!
