A true story.


I thought he stole my woman, but I realise I just druv her away.
I said I thought he stole my woman, but I realise I just druv her away.
She said I love you darlin’, but I just can’t stand these games you play.

I thought I was the great lover, but now I know I was incompetent. (2)
I know where our love came from, but I don’t know where it went.

True love’s made in heaven, but the devil causes breakin’ up. (2)
Fall asleep on the job, boy, the tears will come when you’re wakin’ up.

Love ain’t like an electric light, you can’t just switch it off and on. (2)
But if you don’t treat her right, the one you love will soon be up and gone.

Baby, baby, baby. Baby won’t you please come back. (2)
The sun shone down upon us, but now all the clouds are black.

Well I’ve got another woman, she loves me for the man I am. (2)
Gonna take good care of her, make sure she never wants to scram.
