Well, the look on the cake
It ain't always the taste
My ex-girl she had
Such a beautiful face
I wanted love
But not for myself
But for the girl
So she could love herself

Oh my next girl
Will be nothing like my ex-girl
I made mistakes back then
I'll never do it again
With my next girl
She'll be nothing like my ex-girl
It was a painful dance
And I got a second chance

Oh, a beautiful face
And a wicked way
And I'm paying for her beautiful face
Everyday
All that work
Over so much time
If I think too hard
I might lose my mind

Oh my next girl
Will be nothing like my ex-girl
I made mistakes back then
I'll never do it again
With my next girl
She'll be nothing like my ex-girl
It was a painful dance
And I got a second chance

Oh my next girl

My next girl
