I got home today
Took a look around
Trying to find that girl of mine
She could not be found

All her things were gone
She just left a note
It don't take no mastermind
To figure what she wrote

And she said
"Dear John, I'm moving on;
By this time I'm gonna be long gone.
Dear John, c'est la vie.
Dear John, so long;
You've seen the last of me."

I don't want her back
I won't even try
This time ain't just au revoir
This time it's goodbye

We could not go on
Living like we were
I was just about to write
A Dear John note to her

I was gonna say
"Dear John, I'm moving on;
By this time I'm gonna be long gone.
Dear John, c'est la vie.
Dear John, so long;
You've seen the last of me."
