You've been wearing that crown and tearing me down
It's been a while since you've treated me right
You strung me along for far to long because I never gave up the fight
Until now

It's gonna hit you hard Til You see stars
Gonna put through you a world of hurt
Oh I don't believe in getting even but giving what you deserve
Oh my, oh my

Mama always told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave me that advice
I'm through, with you
You're one bridge I'd like to burn
Scatter the ashes, smash the urn
I'm through with you, la ti da
I don't wanna be your just for fun,
Don't wanna be under your thumb
All I wanna be is …done
Done

You crossed the line too many times,
I'm gonna put you in your place
You play with dynamite don't be surprised when I blow up in your face
Oh my, oh my

Mama always told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave me that advice
I'm through, with you
You're one bridge I'd like to burn
Bottle up the ashes, smash the urn
I'm through with you, la ti da
I don't wanna be part of your fun,
Don't wanna be under your thumb
All I wanna be is …done
Done

(Done) with your selfish ways
And all the games you play
I'm through with you and everything you say

(Fiddle Solo)

Mama told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave that advice

Mama always told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave that advice
I'm through, with you
You're one bridge I'd like to burn
Bottle up the ashes, smash the urn
I'm through with you, la ti da
I don't wanna be your just for fun,
Don't wanna be under your thumb
All I wanna be is …done
Done

Hey ooh,
I wanna be done (so done)
So done (so done)
So done

    You can't not love it if you have ever had to endure the wrath of a narcissistic ex. Thank you Band Perry for putting the words to music!

    "IT IS DONE"
    They say to be done,
    is it said, love is dead,
    and in the song destruction said--
    ~to be buried under ones thumb,
    but still love is done.
    So it is totally kaput,
    and driven well underfoot,
    but mostly I wish the song to be number one.
    I love the words to done,
    but not done to be finished, and all!
    Yet there's violence in the call,
    but still lyric wise it can be won.
    Love gone wrong, yet not complete,
    it's a ride be fasten to your seat,
    and in your kingdom I'm done.
    If not written in fun,
    but in the end--
    ~all in life should be your friend--
    ~~all but, what it is is done!
    To these lyrics I have succumb--
    to this love life is all but diminish,
    but both all coming on a finish,
    and so it is Done.
