It's hard to say how long it's been, but once upon a time

You were my best friend, I'm sorry I hurt you but I loved him, loved him

You said I'd get hurt in the end, you tried to warn me with good advice

Instead of listening, I paid the price, yes I did, you told me back then

You said he'll love you, leave you, you said his heart was cold as ice

And you were right girl, yes, he played me for a fool, (you were right girl)

Hmm, it all came true, (you were right girl), I know

I should have known it all along, (you were right girl)

Yes, you were right and I was wrong, I thought you blamed him for your mistakes

That all your put downs were just sour grapes, you told me back then

That they'll be lyin, cryin' and it won't be his heart that breaks

And ooh, (you were right girl) you were right girl

He played me for a fool, (you were right girl) oh

It all came true, you were (you were right girl) right girl

Yes, I should have known it all along (you were right girl)

You were right girl, you were right and I was wrong

Oh, what made me think that I was different from you

That I could make him do what he wouldn't do for you

Now you told me back then I'd never change him, change him

But he'd change me before he's through, and ooh (you were right girl)

You were right girl, he played me for a fool, he really did

(you were right girl) well, it all came true, (you were right girl)

You were so right, I should have known it all along (you were right girl)

Oh, yes, you were right and I was wrong, oh, (you were right girl)

He really played me for a fool, (you were right girl)

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, it all came true (you were right girl)

Yeah, (you were right girl) you were right girl

I should have known it all along, (you were righ girl)

You were right girlfriend, you were right and I was wrong, woo, woo, woo

(you were right girl) you were right my girl, (you were right girl)

You were right my girl, he played me for a great big fool
