- LyricsI wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practiced all the things I would say
But she came over, I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her deserve
Now I know I'm being used
- LyricsShow me how to lie, you're getting better all the time
And turning all against the one, is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word, sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back in the line, a mob jumps to their feet.
Now dance, fucker, dance,

He tells me every day
He says, "Man I really gotta lose my chick
In the worst kind of way"
She sits on her ass, he works his hands to the bone
