CHORUS:
Ex-girlfriend you can't have him
It's about time
That you found you a new man
He's moved on
Don't you know, don't you know
You gotta let him go,
Let him go, let him go
Ex-girlfriend you don't listen
Stop trying
He's not gonna give in
He's not yours anymore
Don't you know
You gotta let him go
Let him go, let him go

Hey ex-girlfriend
It's too bad when you had him
Y'all thing didn't work
But he's all mine now
So stop pursuing him
Before you get your feelings hurt
See our love is hot
And no, it won't stop
'Cause I got him on lock
And although he rejects you
Lt don't seem to affect you
'Cause you just keep trying
To get wit him

So don't, don't keep, keep calling
Hanging up the phone
When I answer I know it
Tears you up inside and
Why do you sit in silence
On the other end
'Till I hang up and you
Predictably call right back again

REPEAT CHORUS

Hey ex-girlfriend
Whatever your name is

I'm really not amused
'Cause the things you do
Are very offensive
And sometimes straight up rude
All those late night calls and notes
On his car
Won't get you anywhere
You can call his mom
As much as you want
And he won't really care

So don't, don't keep, keep calling
Hanging up the phone
When I answer I know it
Tears you up inside and
Why do you sit in silence
On the other end
'Till I hang up and you
Predictably call right back again

REPEAT CHORUS

I understand why
You want him back
But don't you know
Our love's too strong
For you to penetrate
It's too late

Repeat chorus
