Lately you've been acting kind of strange, it's true
Everybody knows there's been a change in you
You come home for awhile and then you're gone again
Well I thought I'd better let you know just where I stand.

I'm tired of bein' the loser in this game you play
You're gonna wish you'd been truer, when I'm gone someday
You'll try to get me to come back, but I won't make a deal
And I thought I'd better let you know just how I feel.

I feel like crying each night when I'm alone
I feel like dying each time you don't come home
But that's all over now, I've learned a thing or two
I might just go out and find myself somebody new.

And just in case you're wonderin' what it's all about
Well, I thought I'd better let you know I'm checking out.

I feel like crying each night when I'm alone
I feel like dying each time you don't come home
But that's all over now, I've learned a thing or two
I might just go out and find myself somebody new.

And just in case you're wonderin' what it's all about
Well, I thought I'd better let you know I'm checking out.

Well, I thought I'd better let you know I'm checking out...
