Lyrics

Dunbar-Gangwer

Watch out she’s an operator ooh
Watch out she’s an operator ooh

Kiss the boys and make them cry well that’s how she gets her kicks
She’ll tell you that you’re number one but it’s just one of her tricks
She’ll build you up and say you thrill her
Like no one she ever knew
But soon you’ll find
You’re just one in a line
Of other guys she told the same thing to so

Watch out she’s an operator
Better watch your step or you just might fall
Watch out she’s an operator
A real heart breaker don’t care at all

I really was a sucker for a couple of clever lines
But soon I found her looks of love were just heartache in disguise
So if you’re looking to love someone
Then you better stay away from this girl
Or soon you’ll find
You’re just one in a line
Of other guys who got there fingers burned so

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Well you’re a real hot number
Until she breaks your connection
And then suddenly you’re out the door
With no love or affection

(Chorus)
