Verse 1

Your best friend and his best friend start dating.

And you decide to get together too.

We thought you liked him, and he liked you,

But I guess none of us had a clue.

Now he's left you for somebody else.

I won't tell you that to protect your feelings.

But here's a song for you that tells

Chorus

Hey, girl, oh, girl,

Don't ever think that you're not good enough

And that's why he got away.

No, girl, oh, girl,

It's not you, it's him, trust me, I know him.

He never really meant to stay.

He doesn't have the mind

To appreciate how you're one of a kind.

And I know your Prince Charming is on his way.

Hey girl, oh, girl,

Hang on tight now.

I promise you'll feel better now any day.

Verse 2

Yeah, she's kind of cool, and she's kind of hot too.

She's hip and happening but hey

She's the wild girl flirting with every other guy.

I can bet you she would stray.

Unlike her, you've got friends like me who

Would love to smash her stupid guitar in her face.

And I wish I could somehow just tell you

Chorus

Hey, girl, oh, girl,

Don't ever think that you're not good enough

And that's why he got away.

No, girl, oh, girl,

It's not you, it's him, trust me, I know him.

He never really meant to stay.

He doesn't have the mind

To appreciate how you're one of a kind.

And I know your Prince Charming is on his way.

Hey girl, oh, girl,

Hang on tight now.

I promise you'll feel better now any day.

Bridge

You're nice and sweet.

Don't let him change that heart of yours

That can make a hundred hearts skip a beat.

He doesn't deserve you.

What he did to you is so wrong.

Life will pay him back in kind.

Just wait and watch and stay strong.

Chorus

Hey, girl, oh, girl,

Don't ever think that you're not good enough

And that's why he got away.

No, girl, oh, girl,

It's not you, it's him, trust me, I know him.

He never really meant to stay.

He doesn't have the mind

To appreciate how you're one of a kind.

And I know your Prince Charming is on his way.

Hey girl, oh, girl,

Hang on tight now.

I promise you'll feel better now any day.
