She said, boys, they can't be trusted,
I get so disgusted
She says it over and over
You stuttered and you hesitated
From there it all just escalated
It happened over and over

And she said
Boys lie, like the rug under my feet
White lies, every breath between your teeth
Fine line, between love and alibis....Boys lie

He made me this one great promise
But call me the doubting Thomas
She thought it over and over
You'll be mine, you'll be fine
Oh, for the rest of time
He promised over and over

There's nothing that a woman does
just keep her faith because
There's nothing that a man can say
won't make you walk away
Ain't nothing that he can't undo
a little nudge, and a broken smile
Just staring back at you

When it comes to being trusted
She said, you're so busted
But now that it's over, it's over
I took a poll and you were graded,
Boys were highly overrated
It happens over and over

    General CommentIt's a fun song... first time I heard it I saw it live. Seems to relate with the way guys can't ovecome the preconcieved notions that girls have about all guys being the same. And maybe take that as a challenge to prove that special girl wrong.

    General CommentThis song is so funny, because most girls think this way at one point or another in life! I think this way all the time :P and sure it might not be fair to half of the guys out there, but come on, sometimes it damn well applies.
