Hey girl, I wanna give you some friendly advice

He's got you cryin', oh he's done it again
He's made a date and he didn't show
You know he's done this to you so many times
When you gonna let him go
He doesn't treat you little a lover should
He could be so downright cruel
Can't understand why you're hangin' with him
Girl, don't you be a fool

Go on and dump the dude
You know he's got a rotten attitude
He always leaves you in a cryin' mood
Take my advice, don't you think twice
Listen to what I'm telling you
Go on and dump the dude

You know that we've been friends for so many years
And I've never ever seen you this way
So torn apart, how he gets to your heart
With all the little games that he plays
Just give him up, get him out of your life
Promise me that once and for all
You're gonna tell him that it's over and done
The very next time he calls, ain't you now

Dump the dude
You know he's got a rotten attitude
He always leaves you in a cryin' mood
Take my advice, find somebody nice
Listen to what I'm telling you
Go on and dump the dude

Girl, I know you may think this is none of my business
But the fact that we're friends I believe that makes it my business
I care about you but I ain't preachin'
I think you should dump the dude

I don't know why you'd want to settle for less
When you could have so much more
You know that you deserve only the best
So what are you waiting for?

Go on and dump the dude
You know he's got a rotten attitude
He always leaves you in a cryin' mood
Take my advice, don't you think twice
Find yourself somebody nice
Go on and dump the dude
