  • Called me up one day
    Said you didn't mind
    Just called to find out
    What you thought already

    What'd you hope I'd say?
    That you were my one true love, a lie
    But it'd keep you happy

    So I told the truth
    Look at where it got me
    Girl, did you have to mention
    Girl, what you said

    What you say, what you say
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Is she not gonna take me back?
    What you say, what you say
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Is she not gonna take me?
    Said you wanna know
    But I know you don't
    But I know you don't

    You liked getting laid
    And it's not like you laid all of your cards out face up on the table

    Never broke no rules
    Never crossed no boundaries
    Girl, did you have to mention
    Girl, tell me what to do

    What you say, what you say
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Is she not gonna take me back?
    What you say, what you say
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Why you gotta be like that?
    Is she not gonna take me?
    Said you wanna know
    But I know you don't
    But I know you don't

    You said you wanna know
    You said you wanna know
    But I know you don't
    But I know you don't

    You said you wanted names
    You said you wanted dates
    But I know you don't
    But I know you don't

    You said you have your cake
    You said you eat your cake
    Now you know I won't

    (Said you wanna know, oh oh oh oh, oh oh)

    Why you gonna be like that?
    Why you gonna be like that?

    (Whatchu' say, watchu' say?)
    Why you gonna be like that?
    Why you gonna be like that?
    Is she not gonna take me back?

    (Said you wanna know, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Why you gonna be like that?
    Is she not gonna take me?

    (Said you wanna know, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Why you gonna be like that?
    You ain't gonna have me back
    You ain't gonna have me back Writer/s: DAN LANCASTER, LUKE PHILIP RAYNER, MATTHEW STEPHEN DONNELLY, ROBERT DAMIANI, SIMON JAMES DELANEY, THOMAS DAVID DOYLE
