Jerry treats me nice, now, wherever we go
Brian's awful sweet to me
Bob is such a doll when he looks in my eyes
Larry keeps me company
Gary wants to buy me a diamond ring
& Johnny says for me he'd do anything
But the one you can't have is the one that you want the most

It's so true now
They spend up their money like it grows on trees
They all buy me shoes the world
They make you feel important as a girl should feel
They tell you you're the only girl
They're all puttin' out a lady's show for you
They're even at each other's throats for you
But the one you can't have is the one that you want the most

Human nature, why did you make it this way? Ow-wee
Everyone but the one I love makes a play for me

Never had trouble gettin' guys around me
I've never been without a boyfriend
I always had 'em plain get nice with me
I keep 'em guessin' to the end
But the love of my life is really there alone
& the only time things are bad & gone wrong, yeah

The one you can't have is the one that you want the most
