I had a girl
Yeah.. "had" is the word
I tried to hold on
But it was pretty absurd
She said she loved me
And I said I loved her too
But we weren't having any fun
So what could I do
I let her slip away...
Away....
I let her slip away...
Away...
I had a car
Yeah.. the colour was blue
It kept breaking down
So what could I do
I put an ad in the papaer
You know I called it a steal
Then this guy came to see it
And we struck up a deal
I let it slip away...
Away....
I let her slip away...
Away...
I had a thought
You know I thought it a lot
I thought I was smart
And I now I know that I'm not
I let it slip away...
Away....
I let her slip away...
Away...
[repeat 2 times]
