Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
I sit and count the tears

I have counted everyday since you've been away
It seems like a thousand years

And at na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
I sit and count the tears

And I have counted all your lies, all your alibis
Now, I'm a girl, believes just what she hears

And at na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
I sit and count the tears

He's gone and found somebody new
She may be happy now but soon
She'll be counting everyday that he's been away
And it will seem like a thousand years

And at na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
She'll sit and count the tears

She'll sit and count the tears
She'll sit and count the tears

Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night
