They couldn't believe I did it
That I was so committed
My life was so restricted for you (for you)
I just dove inside it blind
Couldn't see what swam inside
Thought that'd be romantic for you

Exchange my vows and said it all
On the ledge, prepared to fall
Even screaming damn it for you
(Remember?)

My friends said you would play me
But I just said they're crazy
While I was crying frantic
Was it true?

Why should I be sad? Heaven knows
From the stupid freaking things that you do
(Stupid freaking things)
Why should I get mad? Feel sad? Who knows?
Just take it all as a sign that we're through (goodbye)

It's time for me to move along (goodbye)
It's time for me to get it on (okay)
I'm tired of singing sad songs (alright)
It's time for me (Britney, let's go)

I sent you to Vegas
With a pocket full of paper
And with no ultimatums on you
I thought what could separate us
But it just seemed that Vegas
Only brought the player out of you
(Hey baby, what's your name?)

Lavish homes and fancy cars
Even got the drop Ferrari
Filled up our garage for you
Made your choice with all the teens
People and US Magazines
Tell me who'd I do that for, who?

Why should I be sad? Heaven knows
From the stupid freaking things that you do
(Stupid freaking things)
Why should I get mad? Feel sad? Who knows?
Just take it all as a sign that we're through (goodbye)

It's time for me to move along (goodbye)
It's time for me to get it on (okay)
I'm tired of singing sad songs (alright)
It's time for me (Britney, let's go)
It's time for me to move along (goodbye)
It's time for me to get it on (okay)
I'm tired of singing sad songs (alright)
It's time for me (Britney, let's go)

And don't you worry
About our angels
(All the magazines trying anything
To get things in the gossip section)
They'll get good guidance
And be trained well
Don't worry I'll keep a little secret
When I ask this question

Why should I be sad? Heaven knows
From the stupid freaking things that you do
Why should I get mad? Feel sad? Who knows?
Just take it all as a sign that we're through (goodbye)

It's time for me to move along (goodbye)
It's time for me to get it on (okay)
I'm tired of singing sad songs (alright)
It's time for me (Britney, let's go)
It's time for me to move along (goodbye)
It's time for me to get it on (okay)
I'm tired of singing sad songs (alright)
It's time for me (Britney, let's go)

It's time for me to move along (goodbye)
It's time for me to get it on (okay)
I'm tired of singing sad songs (alright)
It's time for me (Britney, let's go)
