Lyrics
You're talking so sweet
Well you needn't
You say you won't cheat
Well you needn't
You're tapping your feet
Well you needn't
It's over now
It's over now

You're dressing with class
Well you needn't
You're holding your sass
Well you needn't
You're think you're a gas
Well you needn't
It's over now
It's over now

It's over now
It's over now
You had your fun
So take a bow
You ought to know
You lost the blow
The beat is low
The shadows grow
The lights are low
It's time to go
Let's close this show down

You're taking off weight
Well you needn't
You're looking just great
Well you needn't
You're setting the bait
Well you needn't
It's over now
It's over now

Scat...

You play enough game
Well you needn't
It's more of the same
Well you needn't
You're coming off lame
Well you needn't
It's over now
It's over now

You're bending my ear
Well you needn't
You're calling me dear
Well you needn't
You're acting sincere
Well you needn't
It's over now
It's over now

It's over now
It's over now
Don't wanna see
Don't need a row
You had you're day
Your matinee
You had to stray
You know they say
You gonna play
You gotta face
So find a way out

You say that you try
Well you needn't
You say you won't lie
Well you needn't
You're starting to cry
Well you needn't
It's over now
It's over now

It's over now
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now
