Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee

Oh, I'm gonna put it in the want ads
I need a love that's true
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through

At home I find myself
Lost and all alone
My man is playing the field
The thrill is gone
He stays out all night
Says he's with the boys

But lipstick on his collar
Perfume on it, too
Tells me he's been lying
Tell ya what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna put it in the want ads
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads
Somebody rescue me

I spend my nights alone
Cryin' bitter tears
Although I cry aloud
Nobody really hears
And when I need him most
He's never by my side

He's either playing cards
Or drinking at the bar
He thinks that I'm a fool
I'm going to the evening news

Gonna put it in the want ads
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through

Extra! extra! read all about it!
Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee

Extra! extra! read all about it!
Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee

Oh, I'm gonna put it in the want ads
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through

Gonna put it in the want ads
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads
Please somebody rescue me

Lipstick on his collar
Perfume on it too
Tells me he's been lying
I'm going to the evening news

Gonna put it in the want ads
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through

Gonna put it in the want ads
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads
Please somebody rescue me

Gonna put it in the want ads...
