	Last night I caught that girl
	Lyin'   tryin'
	To deceive me
	And now all of these tears
	She's cryin'   I'm not buyin'
	You better believe me

	She swore that she was mine alone
	Our love would never die
	I'm leavin' now for parts unknown
	I saw her with that guy (saw her with that guy)
	That's the reason why (that's the reason why)
	I'll be passin' by (I'll be passin' by)
