Smash Mouth – I Had You lyrics

Waking up in the morning
My X is calling she tells me to get a job
She tells me that I'm a slob
But still she's calling
Until 3 in the morning
I come home stumbling
I'm looking for something to eat
My head is killing me
It's not as good as it seems

But I know one thing is true
Things were better when I had you

She known each other
I punched your brother
Call the police on me
Your dad's coming after me
Don't you take my dollar
Restraining orders
I keep changing my number
You putting the blame on me
I didn't know she was under 18
She showed me a fake ID
It's not as good as it looks
It's not as good as it seems but I know one thing is true
Things were better when I had you

But I know one thing is true
I'm just trying to get rid of you
Slashing my tires, she broke into my room
Went through my garbage
Checking under my covers
Looking for rubbers
Investigate my laundry
Changing my dead bolts
She threw a brick through my window
Wrapped it in a letter
Saying I hate you I'm gonna kill you
I could never forgive you
But I know one thing is true to be continued
