Good Riddance – Leader Of The Pack lyrics

I met him at the candy store
Turned around and smiled at me
Get the picture
That's when I fell for
Leader of the pack

My folks are always putting me down
They say I came from the wrong side of town
They told me he was bad
But I know he was sad
That's why I fell for
Leader of the pack

Well the day my dad told me to find someone new
I had to tell my johnny we're through
He stood there and asked me why
But all I could do was cry
I'm sorry I hurt you
Leader of the pack

He sort of smiled
Kissed me goodbye
And tears were beginning to show
As he drove away
I ran and I begged him to go slow
Would he hear me
I'll never know

I felt so helpless
What could I do
Rememberin all the things we been through
At school they all stop and stare
I can't hide the tears but I don't care
I'll never forget him
Leader of the pack

Leader of the pack
Now he's all gone
