"The problem is all inside your head", she said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover

She said it's really not my habit to intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself at the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover

Fifty ways to leave your lover
Just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy

Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee

And get yourself free
Just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy

Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee

And get yourself free
She said it grieves me so to see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again
I said I appreciate that and would you please explain

About the fifty ways
She said why don't we both just sleep on it tonight
And I believe in the morning you'll begin to see the light
And then she kissed me and I realized she probably was right

There must be fifty ways to leave your lover
Fifty ways to leave your lover
Just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan

You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much

Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free
You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan

You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much

Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free
