I shoulda known it
I shoulda seen
Leave it to you
To treat me mean

Every promise was just a runaround
I shoulda known it
Yeah, you're gonna let me down
Well it's over now, you see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

I shoulda known it
Hard to believe
It was all right there
In front of me

Sold down the river
Left for dead
Yeah, you're puttin' ideas
In another man's head
And it's over now, you see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

Thanks for nothin'
Yeah, thanks a lot
Go ahead baby
Take all I got
And it's over now, ya see

It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
