After I get rid of everybody
And you get rid of me,
Who will have the last laugh?
I guess we’ll wait and see.

I hate the way her lips move
When she says the words “I love you.”
She reminds of somebody,
But I can’t remember who.

And you lie there as I tell you
That I must do what I must do,
And you lie there as I tell you
That she and I are through.

Then you put your shoes on,
You say “Oh, you’re so right,”
You thank me for the evening
And vanish into the night.

I looked into your eyes
Said, “Here’s what’s gonna be:
After I get rid of everybody,
You’ll get rid of me.”
Now I can’t keep from grinning
Because, you, it’s true:
I saw the whole thing coming,
And now we’ve played it through.

The next time that you catch me, girl,
You will catch me lying,
‘Cause this motherfucking truth bullshit
Ain’t worth the sweat of trying.
