Lyrics

No you didn't hear me wrong
I just thought that you were joking
Well he didn't last for long
And yes that's kind of thought provoking

I know what you've come to do
So you can stop your persistent smiling
I'm not going to look at you
Because you're positively too beguiling

You used to hold me
And pretend that I was him
Well that's what you told me
Oh you may forget but I'll always remember

No let's not try again
I'm sure you'll manage somehow
You were too good for him
But that's just not good enough for me now

You used to hold me
And pretend that I was him
Well that's what you told me
Oh you may forget but I'll always remember
