If you lose
It's because you showed your hand
Somebody called your bluff
I guess you didn't understand.

I thought you learned your lesson
It's time for you to go home
'Cause you don't know how
You don't know when to leave well enough alone.

Crowded rooms
That's where you make your stand
Talking loud and jivin'
Trying to take the upper hand.

I feel sorry for you, buddy
No one's pickin' up the phone
'Cause you don't know how
You don't know when to leave well enough alone
Don't know how to do it, man.

On your own
That's where you've always been
'Cause you're way too short on patience
Trying too hard to get ahead.

You think you'd know by now, man
The game you're playin' has gone cold
'Cause you don't know how
You don't know when to leave well enough alone
Hey, don't know how to do it, man.
