Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...
Here's your standing o

Boy, you remind me of a love that seems so sublime
Your kisses told me, oh, so many lies
Shades on like I be stuntin' through the night
But I'm just hiding puffy eyes
To keep the world from knowing what's inside
I didn't know oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I wasn't sure, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And your words, they had no meaning
How didn't I foresee this?
Happiness, and congrats
Know that I'll pretend I mean it

So cheers (cheers), toast (toast)!
Bravo (bravo) to you!
'Cause you're the man of the hour
I'mma have to send you some flowers
Cheers, toast!
Bravo to you!
The man of the hour
You played the one that loved you the most

So here's your standing o
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...
Boy, so here's your standing o
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...
I gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it
So here's your standing o

Here's your standing ovation
Doctor, I was too patient
Even when you wasn't enough
I'm the one that taught you how to love
And, boy, I gave you all of me
Hugs of affection you couldn't see
Did you embrace her in your arms
Give her my own
Give her more than you gave to me
When you had nothing, I gave
When you were weak, I made you brave
You wanna leave me with scars on my heart
It's funny how y'all forget it all

So cheers (cheers), toast (toast)!
Bravo (bravo) to you!
'Cause you're the man of the hour
I'mma have to send you some flowers
Cheers, toast!
Bravo to you!
The man of the hour
You played the one that loved you the most

So here's your standing o
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...
Boy, so here's your standing o
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...
I gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it
So here's your standing o

Round of applause
To the biggest fool in the world
Give them all that you got
And they still ride out into the sunset with the next girl
Round of applause
To the biggest fool in the world
Give them all that you got
And they still ride out into the sunset
With the next girl

Standing Ovation!
Congratulations!
Damn, I was down for it!
I gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it...
