"Payback Is a Dog" as written by Thom Bell and Kenny Gamble....
By mistake I heard
Some news about you
I just turned my head
And closed my ears
It hurts so bad

First I tried to look
I paused a moment
Just to catch my breath
Until I saw how big a fool I was

To love you so
The way [Incomprehensible]
I had no where to go

Remember when I told you
Not long ago
If you wanted somebody new
To make me know

One day you know
Just how it feels

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog

It seems like only yesterday
We chased a rainbow
Now our pot of gold
Has turned to worthless, useless simple tune

It was just a dream
And I just woke up
I don't have anything

Now you seem to act so strange
I told you so
Only got yourself to blame
Wanna let you know

One day you'll see
Just how it feels

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

    By mistake I heard
    Some news about you
    I just turned my head
    And closed my ears
    It hurts so bad

    First I tried to run
    I paused a moment
    Just to catch my breath
    And then I saw how big a fool I was

    To have love you so
    And when I turned right back
    I had no where to go

    Remember when I told you
    Not long ago
    If you wanted somebody new
    To let me know

    One day you know
    Just how it feels

    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog
    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog

    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog
    Pay back is a dog

    It seems like only yesterday
    We chased our rainbow
    Now our pot of gold
    Has turned to worthless, useless sand it seems

    It was just a dream
    And I just woke up
    I don't have anything

    Now you seem to act so strange
    I told you so
    You only got yourself to blame
    Wanna let you know

    One day you'll see
    Just how it feels

    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog
    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog

    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog
    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog

    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog
    Pay back is a dog
    Dog, it's a dog
