You said that he was gone for good, but I saw him,
Oh my love,
You said that he was gone for good, but I saw him.
He was on the night train heading back to your apartment in Harlem.

I never thought you could be such a problem,
Oh my love,
I never thought you could be such a problem.
So pack your bags for good and go back over to Harlem.

You said you wanted somebody else, well you got him,
Oh my love,
You said you wanted somebody else, well you got him.
I hope that you and him are happy living together in Harlem.

I hope that he is good to you and spoils you rotten,
Oh my love,
I hope that he is good to you and spoils you rotten.
So get your shit together and go back over to Harlem.

Oh my love, oh my love,
Oh my love, oh my love.

    General CommentSeems pretty clear to me. A guy and a girl break up so the song writer starts dating the girl, only to discover she is cheating on him with her ex-boyfriend.
