"Better Stay Gone" as written by and Amy Rigby....
I'VE GOT SOME SHIRTS OF YOURS

I GOT A SUIT THAT USED TO BELONG TO YOU

I OUGHTA THROW THEM OUT

CALL THE SALVATION ARMY

GIVE EM TO SOMEONE WHO CAN REALLY USE EM



BUT YOU MIGHT COME BACK

THE DOOR'S NOT BROKEN

IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND

MINE'S STILL OPEN

YOU'LL NEED SOMETHING TO WEAR

TO TAKE ME OUT TO DINNER

CAUSE WE'RE GONNA WANNA CELEBRATE

WE'LL DRINK CHAMPAGNE

I JUST CAN'T WAIT



BUT THEN AGAIN, THE LAST TIME THAT YOU MOVED ON

I CRIED FROM DUSK TIL DAWN

ON SECOND THOUGHT

I GUESS YOU BETTER STAY GONE



I GOT SOME NEWS TODAY

A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME

SHE'D SEEN YOU AROUND

I GOT ALL HOT AND FLUSTERED

I DUSTED OFF YOUR PICTURE

DUG UP MY DIAPHRAGM AND CHECKED IT FOR HOLES



BECAUSE YOU MIGHT COME BACK

YOU'RE HEARTS STILL BEATING

WHAT WAS GOOD BEFORE

CAN BEAR REPEATING

I'VE GOT CANDLES LIT

THE BATHTUB'S OVERFLOWING

CAUSE YOU KNOW YOU LIKE TO TAKE A BATH

SHAMPOO MY HAIR AND MAKE ME LAUGH



BUT THEN AGAIN, THE LAST TIME THAT YOU MOVED ON

I FELT SO STEPPED UPON

ON SECOND THOUGHT

I GUESS YOU'D BETTER STAY GONE



INSTR.



BECAUSE YOU MIGHT COME BACK

THE BELL STILL BUZZES

IF YOU'VE GOT SOME DOUBTS

WHAT COULD BE WAS

IS THERE A SONG YOU'D LIKE

SOME RECORD IN THE PLAYER

CAUSE WE'RE GONNA WANT TO SING AND DANCE

AND GIVE ROMANCE ANOTHER CHANCE



BUT THEN AGAIN THE LAST TIME THAT YOU MOVED ON

LOVE LEFT MY LEXICON

ON SECOND THOUGHT

I GUESS YOU'D BETTER STAY GONE
