I've been lying
To keep you from this pain
Now your crying
And to know that I'm to blame
And I'll miss you
But it's over now

I'm so sorry
That it had to be this way
Please don't hate me
But there's nothing you can say
To change my mind
I've got to go away

The guy that I fell for
He wanted more and more

Bye bye, boyfriend
It's time that I'd be on my way
Bye bye, boyfriend
I used to like the way you said
Baby, back it up
Lay down and work

It was fun but it couldn't last forever
Bye bye, pretty boy
It's time to, it's time to pack it up
Baby, 'cause it's over now

Let me tell you how it was when we started off
The tattoos and the lip pierce and raggedy style you used to rock
Lately everything you do and say is messed up
Things have changed, down is up we're outta luck

And, baby, I'm sorry
That it had to be this way
Please don't hate me, but there's nothing you can say
To change my mind (the guy that I fell for)
I gotta go (he wanted more and more)

Bye bye, boyfriend
It's time that I'd be on my way
Bye bye, boyfriend
I used to like the way you said
Baby, back it up
Lay down and work

It was fun but it couldn't last forever
Bye bye, pretty boy
It's time to, it's time to pack it up
Baby, 'cause it's over now

You never put the effort in to the things that really counted
A word here, and a kiss there
Could change the way it's turning out
You work so hard at all the things I never cared about
How hands work and fingers moving, eyes wide shut
And, baby, I'm lonely
Though your right in front of me
You controlled me
That was the girl I used to be
Gave up myself
Well it's over now

The guy that I fell for
He wanted more and more

Bye bye, boyfriend
It's time that I'd be on my way
Bye bye, boyfriend
I used to like the way you said
Baby, back it up
Lay down and work

It was fun but it couldn't last forever
Bye bye, pretty boy
It's time to, it's time to pack it up
Baby, 'cause it's over now

I'm backing up
Baby, 'cause it's over now

Pretty pretty pretty pretty boyfriend
Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on
Baby, back it up
Lay down and work
It was fun but it couldn't last forever
Bye bye, pretty boy
It's time to, it's time to pack it up

Baby, 'cause it's over now

    General CommentQuite a few of these lyrics are wrong, but the worst of them all is:

    "Let me tell you how it was when we started off
    The tattoo's and the leap years and right sound that you used to rock
    Now baby everything you do and say is messed up
    Things have changed, down is up we're outta luck"

    is really:

    "Let me tell you how it was when we started off
    With your tattoo and your lip pierced
    And the raggedy style you used to rock
    Lately everything you do and say is messed up
    Things have changed - down is up we're outta luck"

    General Commentshe fell for a guy who wasn't ready for commitment,
    wanted sex, something relative...
    wanted her body, but not her mind and her soul.
