You said that you'd be happy
With a baby on your knees
But here I sat with him in my arms
And you're slippin' around on me.

You thought that you were being wise
When you called me on the phone
And you said that you had been delayed
But you'd soon be coming home.

I knew that you've been cheatin'
'Cause you stayed away so long
And I heard the jukebox playing
When you called me on the phone.

--- Instrumental ---

Now it couldn't have been the radio
'Cause it had a honky tonk sound
And the same old song kept comin' and a goin'
And beat kept shufflin' around.

When I heard the people laughing
I knew there must be something wrong
For it was much too late to be delayed
For I could see the break of dawn.

I knew that you've been cheatin'
'Cause you stayed away so long
And I heard the jukebox playing
When you called me on the phone...
