Patti Rothberg – This One's Mine lyrics

Well, I know that I got to leave you, lover
But I don't see how I can
You say you wanna make me happy
Go and find yourself another man

The first time that you told me this
You know my heart was about to crack
But I was givin' some guy just a little kiss
And that's when you wanted me back

No thanks to you I'm doing fine
Everybody has their day and this one's mine

People come around and tell me
Baby, 'bout the way you won't be true
But I never loved you anyway
So the last laugh is on you, ha

Couldn't keep me on the sidelines honey
While you played the field no more and
The thing that you never realized
Is it was me who was keepin' score

You lost the game right down the line
Everybody has their day and this one's mine

You can beg and you can plead
And get down upon your knees
I could say that you were a dirty dog
But that's an insult to the fleas

I've given you about 10 second chances
And ya blew it about eleven
Now I don't ever wanna see your face
Right here 'less you ever make it to heaven

Somehow I know you're not that divine
Everybody has their day and this one's mine
