Don't do me any favors matter of fact why don't you do yourself a few. Your presence ain't

Nobody's blessing I've got plenty of other things I could do. Oh no, not another excuse your

Tired silly games for me are just no use and now it's plain for me to see you're with

Somebody that you don't want to be

So won't you please please me like you want to not like you have to or won't you just go on

And leave me leaving me is the least that you could do

You could have spared me so much misery and told me you just wanted a friend. Believe me

There is a difference when you mean it and when you pretend. Or was I just you habit cause I

Know a habit is a hard thing to break, but won't you spare me a little mercy there's only so

Much that I can take

But won't you please please me like you want to not like you have to or won't you just go on

And leave me leaving me is the least that you could do
