Now this tune is all about a girl that's got a good man
But she gonna leave him, to another, for another slick talkin' dude
But I advised her not to burn down the bridge 
She might want to come back

One, two, three, four!

Your mind's set on leavin'
To a house down a one way street 
Say you're gonna lock up all the doors 
And throw away the key

Oh, but don't burn down the bridge, darlin'
You just might want to come back
'Cause the grass ain't no greener 
On the other side of the track 

Oh, you counted me out, before I could get to bat
All the things are out-ta the Chevrolet  Tomorrow night be drivin' a Cadillac 

But don't burn down the bridge, darlin'
You just might want to come back
'Cause the grass ain't no greener 
On the other side of the track 

Hey!

All your so called friends
 Taught you how to cheat an' lie
Now it seem like you gonna jump
From the fryin' pan to the fire

Oh, but don't burn down your bridge, darlin'
You just might want to come back
'Cause the grass ain't no greener 
On the other side of the track 

Hey! Ha!

 Thank you! Woo!
 Thank you very much!
