Friday night you and your boys went out to eat 
Then they hung out, but you came home around three 
If six of y'all went out 
Then four of you were really cheap 
'Cause only two of you had dinner 
I found your credit card receipt

It's not right but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Pack your bags up and leave 
And don't you dare come running back to me 

It's not right but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Close the door behind you leave your key 
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

I pack your bags so you can leave town for a week (yes I am)
The phone rings and then you look at me (Why'd you turn and look at me) 
You said it was one of your friends, down on 54th Street (boy)
So why did 213 show up on your caller ID

I've been through all this before 
So how could you think 
That I would stand around and take some more 
Things are gonna change 
'Cause I won't be your fool anymore 
That's why you have to leave 
So don't turn around to see my face 
There's no more tears left here for you to see

Was it really worth you going out like that 
See I'm moving on and I refuse to turn back 
See all of this time I thought I had somebody down for Whitney
It turns out, you were making a fool of me

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Pack your bags up and leave 
And don't you dare come running back to me

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Close the door behind you leave your key 
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Pack your bags up and leave 
And don't you dare come running back to me

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Close the door behind you leave your key 
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Pack your bags up and leave 
And don't you dare come running back to me

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Close the door behind you leave your key 
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Pack your bags up and leave 
And don't you dare come running back to me

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Close the door behind you leave your key 
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

It's not right, but it's okay 
I'm gonna make it anyway 
Pack your bags up and leave
