Now every once in a while
There's a crack in my smile
Dark voices are talking to me
Dark voices tell me the way
It's supposed to be
They said "Breakin' up"
They said "It's hard to do"
But what they say
About breakin' up
Y'know it's just not true
Breakin' up, it's easy to do
Breakin' up, it's easy to do
Why if you know
Why did you have to go
And leave me on t he floor
About as sick as a dog
I'm feeding my face
Like a bleary-eyed hog
Why'd it have to stop
With so much good undone
Breakin' up, it's easy to do
Breakin' up, it's easy to do
Breakin' up, it's easy to do
Y'know I break up every time
I break up with you

Gordon Gano: vocal, guitar
Brian Ritchie: acoustic bass guitar, reed organ, guitar solo, vocal
Guy Hoffman: drums, percussion, vocal

Recorded and Mixed by David Vartanian at DV's Perversion Room, Milwuakee, WI
