Don't you cry now, sweetie,
Just you put that gun away
All I did was play the part
You wanted me to play.

You thought that you were handsome
And strong and good in bed;
I just agreed with you and you
Swallowed every word I said.

Oh honey, did you really think
You were special, dear? Unique?
And did you really think
I was so needy and so... weak

I robbed you blind, I left you cryin',
I played you for a fool,
But you're the one who let me.
Admit it, it was good for you too.

You'll have quite a story
'Bout the one that got away.
It's a cruel game, dear, but just the same
It's one that we all play.

I've watched you force your hand before:
You're no angel either, dear.
So put your hands where I can see them,
And let's get one thing clear:

You're pathetic!
Did you really have to spring for that new tattoo?
Did you really think that I would choose to stay with you?

I gave you what you wanted.
You returned the favor, too.
We've both made out quite nicely.
Admit it, it was good for you too

Admit it, admit it was good for you too

I won't apologize, my dear,
I won't apologize because
I know that it was good for you
Too.
