Lyrics
It's the end to all my high jinx
It's the end to all my capers

Sort of a three way story
(the kind you read about in the
Sunday papers)

All I was gettin' over
Havin' both cakes and eatin' them too

But to my surprise,
My slice on the sun
Been eatin' the forbidden fruit

Refrain
Oh I've been cheatin' on you
I've been cheatin' on you
Been cheatin' on you with
Somebody's been cheatin' on me

Strophe
Thought I was a Jimmy Slick
(Yeah, I thought that)

Don't I was a Charlie Cool
(Thought that too)

But I'm just sad and stupid
(My friends call me Freddy Poo)

Ooh dooped, why don't you call me
Turn the dooper into the doop

I'm so surprised
To find my slice on the sun
Been eatin' the forbidden fruit.

Refrain
Oh, I've been cheatin' on you ...baby
I've been cheatin' on you
I've been cheatin' on you with
Somebody's been cheatin' on me

Guitar Solo
(Oh somebody say someting)

(Oh Yeah)
(Slow that guitar)
