Well I hardly knew ya baby
And you were comin' on
Mama told me there'd be days like these
I should f known better maybe
Would of seen right through ya
I needed you like a disease


I ain't gonna cry over you
You're a mystery
I ain't gonna cry over you
You're history, history

You said you'd wait forever
But I know your type
The lights are on but on-one's home
I changed my number maybe
You better change your mind
Cause I'd rather spend the night alone

[Chorus: x2]

I ain't your kinda guy
So forget about me
Cause I ain't too shy to say what I'm thinkin' hit it
I got reckless baby
Put you in your place
Next time maybe re-arrange your face
