Friday night you and your boys
Went out to eat
Then they hung you
But you came home around three
Now if six of youґll went out
Then four of you were really cheap
'Cause only two of you had dinner
I found your credit card receipt

Chorus:
Itґs not right, but itґs okay
Iґm gonna make it anyway
Pack your bags up and leave
And donґt you dare come
Running back to me
Itґs not right, but itґs okay
Iґm gonna make it anyway
Close the door behind you
Leave your key
Iґd rather be alone than unhappy

I packed your bags
So you can leave town for a week
yes I am
The phone rings
Then you look at me
(Whyґd you turn
And look at me)
You said it was one of your friends
down on 54th street
So why did 213 show up
On your caller I'd

Iґve been through all this before
(So how could you think)
don't think about it
don't think about it
(That I would stand around
And take some more)
get gone, get gone
(Things are gonna change)
'Cause I wonґt be a fool anymore
Thatґs why you have to leave
So donґt turn around
To see my face
'Cause thereґs no more tears
Left here for you to see

was it really worth
You goinґ out like that
See Iґm moving on
And I refuse to turn back
See all this time
I thought I had somebody
Down for Whitney
It turns out
You were makinґ a fool of me oh

Chorus
