(Oh oh oh ohh)

Here's your standing O

Boy, you remind
Me of a love that seemed so sublime
Your kisses told me oh so many lies
Shades on like I be stuntin' through the night

But I decided with the eyes
To keep the world from knowin' what's inside
I didn't know oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
I was a show oh oh oh oh-oh-oh

And your words they had no meaning
How didn't I forsee this?
Happiness and congrats
Know that
I pretend I mean it

So cheers, toast, bravo to you
'Cause you're the man of the hour
I'm a have to send you some flowers oh

Cheers, toast, bravo to you
The man of the hour
You played the one that loved you the most

So here's your standing O
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh

Boy so here's your standing O
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Gave you my heart and all you did 
Was pound on it (so here's your standing O)

Here's your standing ovation
Doctor, I was too patient
Even when you wasn't enough
I'm the one that taught you how to love

And boy I gave you all of me
Parts of affection you couldn't see
As you embrace her in your arms give her my all
Give her more than you gave to me

When you had nothing I gave
When you were weak I made you brave
You went and leave me with the scars on my heart
It's funny how ya'll forget it all

So cheers, toast, bravo to you
'Cause you're the man of the hour
I'm a have to send you some flowers oh

Cheers, toast, bravo to you
The man of the hour
You played the one that loved you the most

So here's your standing O
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh

Boy so here's your standing O
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh ohh oh
Gave you my heart and all you did 
Was pound on it (so here's your standing O)

Round of applause to the
Biggest fool in the world (biggest fool in the world)
Give 'em all that you got
And they still ride out into the sunset with the next girl

Round of applause to the
Biggest fool in the world (in the world)
Give 'em all that you got
And they still ride out into the sunset with the next girl

Standing ovation
Congratulations
Damn I was down for it
Gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it

Standing ovation
Congratulations
Damn I was down for it
Gave you my heart and all you did was pound on it

All you did was pound on it
Gave you my heart
And all you did was pound on it
All you did was pound on it
