You call me up at five to five, and you ask me if I’ll drop by
That you need me, tonight you’re all alone.
Like the fool I am and the fool I’ll be, I drove there anxiously
But when I got there, you were not alone.

When will I ever learn that you’ll never care about me.
You only build me up to bring me down again.
When will I ever learn that you’ll use me and abuse me.
Oh tell me, when will I ever learn.

When will I learn, when will I get wise, you never, apologise.
I swear that this time I’m through with you.
Like the fool I am and the fool I’ll be the next time you need me,
Once again I’ll give in to you.

When will I ever learn, that you’ll never care about me
You only build me up to bring me down again
When will I ever learn, that you’ll use me and abuse me
Oh tell me, when will I ever learn
