I shoulda known it
I shoulda seen
Leave it to you
To treat me mean

Every promise was just a runaround
I shoulda known it
Yeah you're gonna let me down
Well it's over now you see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

I shoulda known it
Hard to believe
It was all right there
In front of me

Sold down the river
Left for dead
Yeah you're puttin' ideas
In another man's head

And it's over now you see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
Thanks for nothin'
Yeah thanks a lot

Go ahead baby
Take all I got
And it's over now ya see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
