Baby I no longer want to be 
Just a thorn in your side 
Tell me what you gave me baby 
And I will give you back 
The troubles you gave to me 
Gonna wrap em up in a box 
Tie 'em up with string 
Send 'em back to you 
They no longer mean a thing to me 

Better get used to bein' my used to be 
Baby I no longer want to be 
Just a cushion for your pride 
Here's my badge back baby 
This man's gotta ride away 
Before you make me change my mind 
I'll be gone before you notice that I'm not around 
You'll look everywhere baby 
But I just won't be found 

Better get used to being my used to be 
I used to be the hands of your clock baby 
But I always knew in time 
I'd no longer be the key to your lock baby 
And you would change your mind 

I used to be the hands of your clock baby 
But I always knew in time 
I'd no longer be the key to your lock baby 
And you would suddenly change your mind 

Baby I remember a time 
When you really used to try 
But nowadays baby 
You can't even look me in the eye 
Your love is drifting with the tide 
Well I ain't gonna blame you 
If you ain't gonna blame me 
I'll just move on down 
I'm sure that you'll agree 

Get used to bein' my used to be 
Well I ain't gonna blame you 
If you ain't gonna blame me 
I'll just move on down the line 
I'm sure that you'll agree 
Better get used to bein' my used to be
