Loretta broke it off in a letter,
She wrote that she was leaving and that her life would be better.
Joan broke it off over the phone,
After the tone, she left me alone.
Jen said she'd never ever see me again.
When I saw her again, she said it again.
Anne met another man.
Lisa got amnesia, just forgot who I am.
Felicity said there was no electricity.
Emily, no chemistry.
Beth left, Fran ran.
Flo had to go, I couldn't go with the flow.
Carol Brown just took a bus out of town.
But I'm hoping that you'll stick around.

Bret: He cannot cook, he is not good boyfriend material.
Jemaine: We can eat cereal!
Bret: You'll lose interest fast, his relationships never last.
Jemaine: Shut up, girlfriends from the past!
Bret: He says he'll do one thing, then he goes and does another thing.
Jemaine: Mmm... Who organized all my ex-girlfriends into a choir, and got them to sing?
Shut up, girlfriends from the past.

Mimi will no longer see me.
Britney, Britney hit me.
Paula, Persephone, Stella, Stephanie.
There must be fifty ways that lovers have left me.
Carol Brown just took a bus out of town.
Love is a delicate thing, it could just float away on the breeze.

Bret: He said the same thing to me.
Jemaine: How can we ever know if I'm the right person in this world?
Bret: He maybe looks at other girls.
Jemaine: Love is a mystery, well, it does not follow rules.
Bret: This guy, he's a fool.
Jemaine: Shut up, girlfriends from the past, quiet. Shut up, girlfriends from the past, quiet.
Bret: He'll always be a boy, he's a man who never grew up.
Jemaine: I think I told you to shut up.

Mona, I thought you told me that you were in a coma.
Stan, you should've told me when we began that you were a man.
Who organized this choir of ex-girlfriends?
Was it you, Carol Brown?
Was it you, Carol Brown?
Carol Brown just took a bus out of town.
But I'm hoping that you'll stick around.
