Someday boy you'll reap what you sown
And you will see that what's wrong with me

You've gone to the dogs again and I'm not placing bets on you
Anything but blind
Surprise, surprise!
Valentine's day is over, it's over

You know where the phone is
How brittle bone is
The devil made you a man
Are related now I understand
So below there is no love
Valentine's day is over, it's over

Time runs out very fast
But that's all in the past
Your idea of justice just becomes rougher and rougher
Valentine's day is over, it's over

Thank you for the card
That love between two people must be based on understanding
Surprise, surprise!
Valentine's day is over, it's over
It's over
