It was a matter of time
before she took her heart
and belongings away

you stood at the door and cried
but you got smart and realized

you’re too sentimental
she’s just superficial
your sympathetic magic
cast a spell

it was a matter of days
before she saw the smile
and wiped it off your face

you raved and you ranted
she took you for granted

you thought she knew you
but you had it coming to you
the sympathetic magic
casts its spell

one of these days
you’ll understand
making love
don’t make her
the only woman in the world

one of these days
you’ll find
that’s what you get
for being so kind
