Life turned to love
Now love is about to turn into hate
You ask me, “Can we try it again”
Boy, let me tell you somethin'
Our road has come to an end, huh

First come, first serve
Hey, you don't want my love
So I'm givin' it away
First come, first serve
And if it hurts your pride
Boy, you get what you deserve

Boy, tell the truth, did it ever occur to you
That I have wants, desires and needs too
While you were out there roamin' and homin' the streets
I sat home lonely, night after night, in desperate need, oh

First come, first serve
Hey, you don't want my love
So I'm givin' it away
First come, first serve
And if it hurts your pride
Boy, you get what you deserve, oh

Boy, I want you to know that I'm a-through talkin'
So I can get my things and start walkin'
Conversation ain't what, what I need, no, no
In case you want to know I'm takin' it to the streets, oh

First come, first serve, tell the truth, boy
You don't want my love
So I'm givin' it away
First come, first serve
And if it hurts your pride
Boy, you get what you deserve, uh-huh

First come, first serve, ain't it true
You don't want my love
So I'm givin' it away
First come, first serve
And if it hurts your pride
Boy, you get what you deserve, oh

First come, first serve
Hey, you don't want my love
So I'm givin' it away
First come, first serve
And if it hurts your pride
Boy, you get what you deserve, I'm movin' on

First come, first serve
I'm movin' on, I'm movin' on
Bye-bye, baby
First come, first serve
