(Ian Hunter)

I can't believe what you did, you know - you just can't let it go
I'm sick 'n' tired of listening to your innuendo
I can't believe what you did, you know - you sawed me in half
When I was at the end of my endurance
All you did was bite the hand that fed you from the start

Oh - oh - oh - oh - a little soap 'n' water, na na na na na na - would not come amiss
Oh - oh - a little soap 'n' water - a little soap 'n' water, a little soap 'n' water

I can't believe what you did, why - why you stoop so low
Why am I the target for your slings and arrows
I can't believe what you did, when - you showed me no class
Every mirror tells a different story
Who gave you the right to be the keeper of my past

Oh - oh - oh - oh - a little soap 'n' water, na na na na na na - would not come amiss
Oh - oh - a little soap 'n' water - a little soap 'n' water, we're gonna have to wash your mouth out if you persist

You know, I was never loyal to you - you were never loyal to me
We were both loyal to the cause
That cause died - there was nothing left inside
It ain't my fault, let it - it ain't your fault - let it ride

I can't believe what you did, you know - you know how to hurt
All you do is drag old memories through the dirt
I can't believe what you did - you show no mercy
Yesterday don't last until tomorrow
My oh my, what a pitiful cry - you're your own worst enemy

Oh - oh - oh - oh - a little soap 'n' water, na na na na na na - would not come amiss
Oh - oh - a little soap 'n' water - a little soap 'n' water, we're gonna have to wash your mouth out if you persist

I got just what you need, I got just what you need
I got just what you need, I got just what you need
I got just what you need, I got just what you need
I got just what you need
