You told me I was the one
The only one who got your head undone
And for a while I believed the line that you spun

But I've been looking at you
Looking closely at the things you do
I didn't see it the way you wanted me to

How how howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well howzat
It's goodbye

You only came for a smile
Even though you're really not my style
I didn't think that you'd run me 'round
Like you do

How how howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well howzat
It's goodbye
Aha
O yeah, oh yeah

Well I've been looking at you
(I'll tell you what I see)
Looking closely at the things you do
(No you can't fool me)
I didn't see it the way you wanted me to

How how howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I found where you're at
It's goodbye

Howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well howzat
Goodbye
Oh yeah, oh yeah
