i think i'm in trouble again
oh no not another girl that i can't win
seems the more time i spend trying hard for another
leaves me high and dry with no will to recover

warning signs
came from the first flirt
my friends had all told me that this could hurt
the jury was out and then the verdict came in
i was sentenced to hard time and loneliness without her

i don't know what to say
she brought me to life's party and left me
her sinister smile - i should have known
she was too good for me
i was a temporary boyfriend

good little girls can be so hard to please
but i've learned what they really want is never me
true love is not nice, pain and hurt i've discovered
but i'm not quite ready to become a modern lover

tacticians wane and statisticians gawk
as prototype girl A, the new kid on the block
she blows them off in succession but i'm newly inclined
as i save her the effort
and dump myself this time

now i know what to say
no more girls can play games with my heart
my foolish days have all come and one
women beware, i'm a temporary boyfriend
