Verse 1

Hey boy, did you hear about the new job on the block?

It's called Rebound Girl, it's easy- a guy turns back the clock

To his old relationship, misses his ex, gets cold and detached,

While you love him and show him you're the perfect match,

Till he realizes it's not working and leaves you out in the dark.

I tried this once, they told me, hey, get set, on your mark…

Pre-chorus

And go- go, go, go,

But just so you know,

I decided to run as fast as I can,

And get away from that man.

Chorus

Sorry, but I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.

I've already got enough on my plate,

I've got no time to clean your slate.

I won't help you bury the skeletons in your closet.

Cause I need a love that would last,

A man who knows that past is past.

And I don't recover from heart-breaks that fast.

That's why I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.

Verse 2

You talk about how you saw your girl with another guy,

Yes, I did feel pretty bad for you, it sucks, I'm not gonna lie.

But that's not enough for me to say yes when you ask me

Out to movie, cause, hey, a jealousy-induced dating spree?

Yes, of course it'd work, yep, of course you'd feel the spark.

I tried this once, they told me, hey, get set, on your mark…

Pre-chorus

And go- go, go, go,

But just so you know,

I decided to run as fast as I can,

And get away from that man.

Chorus

Sorry, but I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.

I've already got enough on my plate,

I've got no time to clean your slate.

I won't help you bury the skeletons in your closet.

Cause I need a love that would last,

A man who knows that past is past.

And I don't recover from heart-breaks that fast.

That's why I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.

Bridge

Rebound girl,

Doesn't really pay well,

Tears are a good way to get rid of that extra mascara but

Is it really worth

Going through Hell?

Yeah, not the best idea I've ever had.

Sorry, but I'm not doing it anymore, my bad.

Chorus

Sorry, but I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.

I've already got enough on my plate,

I've got no time to clean your slate.

I won't help you bury the skeletons in your closet.

Cause I need a love that would last,

A man who knows that past is past.

And I don't recover from heart-breaks that fast.

That's why I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.

Outro

See the confidence in me that was newly found?

Yeah, no more being charitable, no more rebounds.

I've already got enough on my plate,

I've got no time to clean your slate.

I won't help you bury the skeletons in your closet.

Cause I need a love that would last,

A man who knows that past is past.

And I don't recover from heart-breaks that fast.

That's why I'm done playing the role of Rebound Girl.
