I read her letters 
And I saw her picture 
And I smelled her cheap perfume, hmm 
It must have come from you 

How could you touch her 
Lay down beside her 
Well, there just ain't no excuse 
You shouldn't have been so loose 

I saw the telephone bill 
You must be out of your mind 
If you think you can smooth it over 
Then you're wasting your time 

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget 
'Cause you really, really, really, really 
hurt me this time 
And I guess I can go on although I must admit 
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time 

You're such a liar 
You took her and her children 
Out for the afternoon 
While I was sittin' waitin' on you 

How could you do it 
You should've been here with me 
You just couldn't do it 
You had to be in the streets, uh 

Well, I heard through the grapevine 
You've been messin' around 
When you thought you were gettin' over 
That's when my baby I found, oh... 
Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget 
'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time (You really hurt me) 
And I guess I can go on although I must admit 
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy 
thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time 

I gave my heart, gave my time 
=Gave my soul 'cause love was blind 
I can't explain this poor excuse 
Of a man of a boy who was born to lose 

I paid the rent, washed your clothes 
Cooked your food and I only God knows 
Only God knows why I stay with you 
I guess (Guess I) I'm in love 

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget 
(Oh, baby, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love) 
Cause you really, really, really, really 
'hurt me this time 
(Ooh, you really hurt me this time, baby) 
And I guess I can go on although I must admit (Although I must admit) 
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that 
I'm gonna mess around some time 
(I'm gonna mess around some time) 

I gave my heart, gave my time 
Gave my soul 'cause love was blind 
I can't explain this poor excuse 
Of a man of a boy who was born to lose 

I paid the rent, I washed your clothes 
Cooked your food and I only God knows 
Only God knows why I stay with you 
I guess (Guess I) I'm in love 

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget 
'Cause you really, really, really, really 
hurt me this time 
(Ooh, oh, baby, you hurt me, you hurt me) 
And I guess I can go on although I must admit 
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy 
thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time 

I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget 
(I'm willin', I'm willin' and able) 
'Cause you really, really, really, really 
hurt me this time
