I don't care if you never come home
I don't mind if you just keep on rollin' away on a distant sea
Cus I don't love you and you don't love me

You cause a commotion when you come to town
You give 'em a smile and they melt
Havin' lovers and friends is all good and fine
But I don't like yours and you don't like mine

La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

I don't care what you do at night
Oh, I don't care how you get your delights
I'm gonna leave you alone, I'll just let it be
I don't love you and you don't love me

I got a problem can you relate
I got a woman callin' love hate
We made a vow we'd always be friends
How could we know that promises end

I tried to love for years upon years
You refuse to take me for real
It's time you saw what I want you to see
That I'd still love you if you'd just love me

Thanks to Shelly for the correction
