Verse 1

Heard your team's playing in the finals on Sunday.

You said you're taking her out on a date, but hey,

You can always cancel, I'm sure she'll understand.

It's just the one time in months she'll get to hold your hand.

Verse 2

I bet you'll meet her late, take her to a café,

Where the match is on and you won't hear what she'll say,

With your eyes and mind glued to the giant TV screen.

Yeah, I bet she'll have such a perfect evening.

Pre chorus 1

My heart's been chipped on your cruel words,

Ever since you told me you're meeting your girl.

I've been wondering what's on the cards,

For me on Sunday while you give her a twirl.

Well now I know-

Chorus

I'm gonna stay at home and watch the game,

Cheer when he scores, umm, what's his name?

Doesn't matter, all that does is this-

It's ruining your date- my secret wish.

Verse 3

Yeah, I know I sound bitter, but I damn well should.

You had me completely fooled, I'll admit you're good.

But it's a small town, and rumors travel fast here.

Wasn't long before news about her reached my ears.

Verse 4

You chose to deny, but just at first, then you switched

To flaunting her before me to make my heart twitch.

Boy, I'm twenty four, I won't cry, no, I'll just wait,

For dear old fate to intervene and ruin your date.

Pre chorus 2

My heart's been on the mend since I heard,

About your date in my city, how dare you?

Have fun, here's to flipping you the bird,

When you can't watch your precious match at two.

Oh, by the way,

Chorus

I'm gonna stay at home and watch the game,

Cheer when he scores, umm, what's his name?

Doesn't matter, all that does is this-

It's ruining your date- my secret wish.

Bridge

Guess hell really has no fury like a woman scorned?

If she's your rose, I promise I'll be your thorn.

And indulge in being this petty,

And celebrate this small victory.

I'm gonna stay at home and watch the game,

It's your fault, you're the one to blame.

And now you must pay the price-

You'll miss you game, piss off your girl, that's losing twice!

Chorus

I'm gonna stay at home and watch the game,

Cheer when he scores, umm, what's his name?

Doesn't matter, all that does is this-

It's ruining your date- my secret wish.

Chorus

I'm gonna stay at home and watch the game,

Cheer when he scores, umm, what's his name?

Doesn't matter, all that does is this-

It's ruining your date- my secret wish.
