She’s not the one I would choose if I was 17
At least if I had one more chance to
Please find a way to let me go my way
And you can do the same if there’s still time.

The door to the bedroom doesn’t close as tight
As you’ve made your heart to keep me out
And why would I risk another honeymoon
Considering the first one didn’t take

I know you’ll leave me by myself
I know you’ll leave me by myself

Oh we’ll attend to me when I grow old
You’ll be raising someone else’s kids
And I don’t suppose you’d think about a trade
The years that we both wasted for your health

I know you’ll leave me by myself
I know you’ll leave me by myself.

If you sign the papers when I’m not around
Try for now to use your maiden name
And don’t find someone who treats you like I did
You deserve a better man than me

I know you’ll leave me by myself
I know you’ll leave me by myself
