When you left me it came as a big surprise
And the tears rolled down my rosy cheeks from my big blue eyes
You said for your high class friends I wadn't good enough
So you put me in this corner gathering dust.

Well, I never thought that you'd treat me that a way
And made me sittin' here alone on my dignity while you're out to play
And every night you go out and really strat your stuff
While I'm sittin' here in this corner gathering dust.

Well, a man ain't a man when he's got no plan
And don't know what he's gonna do
But I ain't that kind to let you break my mind
And I'm gonna get over you.

I'm gonna find myself a new baby every night
I'm gonna find 'em fool 'em then forget I ever held 'em tight
Don't waste your time a comin' round tryin' to raise a fuss
'Cause I'm all through sittin' in the corner gathering dust.

Well, a man ain't a man when he's got no plan
And don't know what he's gonna do
But I ain't that kind to let you break my mind
And I'm gonna get over you.

I'm gonna find myself a new baby every night
I'm gonna find 'em fool 'em then forget I ever held 'em tight
Don't waste your time a comin' round tryin' to raise a fuss
'Cause I'm all through sittin' in the corner gathering dust...
