If it happens again I'm leaving 
I'll pack my things and go 
If it happens again 
There'll be no looking back 
I won't say I told you some
You did what you were told 
And you took the strain 
Been left out in the cold 
Got yourself to blame 
But believe me, 
If it happens again I'm leaving 
If it stays the same I'm gone 
When you're stabbed in the back 
And there's salt in the wound 
The it's time to move along 

No more spanners in the works, 
All the works been done 
Had your face rubbed in the dirt 
On show for every one 
But believe me 
If it happens again I'm leaving 
If it stays the same I'm gone 
When compromise is the song you sing 
It's been going on to long
