Dance Hall Crashers – Othello lyrics

How can you say that you love me,
When you never look me in the face.
How can you say that you need me,
When you've been messing around.
All over the place.
I went downtown yesterday,
And was walking in the marketplace
All the women they laughed at me,
They whispered that I was a disgrace.
You've been out all night drinking again,
You never even bother to call.
Been crossing blades with God knows who,
You're headed for your rise and fall.
Sooner or later I'll wake up,
And rub the sleep out of my eyes.
Later that day when you wake up,
You'll be in for a big surprise.
You talk about yourself all night,
When really you are such a bore.
You gave me flowers to my face,
Behind my back you call me a whore.
I've had enough of you God knows what,
I think it's time for you to leave.
I've forgiven you too many times before,
This time you get no reprive.
The bed's too big without you,
But I suppose it'll have to do.
Better to lay in an empty bed,
Than to spend another night beside you.
People talking all over town,
About the way you've been putting me down.
People talking all over town,
They don't wanna see you around.
