I could be married
Maybe a couple kids
When you come knockin’ on my door.
Bumptious and ornery
You’ll be the last to know
That I don’t love you anymore
But didn’t the paper tell you that I moved on?
Didn’t ya hear me on the radio?
Didn’t you seal our fate those many years ago?
Well you’re on your own and I’m full grown.

Bye bye bye Mr. Buttonlip
I can’t take your silence anymore
Bye bye bye Mr. Buttonlip
I really hope you find what you’re looking for
‘Cause I won’t wait around for you no more

And I know your good intentions come
Every time you get a little lonesome
Aching for familiar faces, routine girls in darkened places
Pity holes where violins abound
Why do you stick around just to stay in the picture?
This album closed when you hit the road.
Why do you come around just for warmth in the winter?
This heart of mine can’t be bought and sold.

Bye bye bye Mr. Buttonlip
I can’t take your silence anymore
Bye bye bye Mr. Buttonlip
I really hope you find what you’re looking for
‘Cause I won’t wait around for you no more
So don’t come knockin’ on my door
‘Cause I won’t live there anymore

I was waiting for you to come to your senses
But all I got from you is your desperation.
