  • Well, I had me a boy, turned him into a man
    I showed him all the things that he didn't understand
    Whoa, and then I let him go

    Now, there's one in California who's been cursing my name
    'Cause I found me a better lover in the UK
    Hey, hey, until I made my getaway

    One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
    'Cause I'm the best baby that they never gotta keep
    One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
    They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

    Ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
    Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
    They won't let go
    Ex's and oh's

    I had a summer lover down in New Orleans
    Kept him warm in the winter, left him frozen in the spring
    My, my, how the seasons go by

    I get high, and I love to get low
    So the hearts keep breaking, and the heads just roll
    You know that's how the story goes

    One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
    'Cause I'm the best baby that they never gotta keep
    One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
    They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

    Ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
    Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
    They won't let go

    My ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
    Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
    They won't let go
    Ex's and oh's

    One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
    Climbing over mountains and a-sailing over seas
    One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
    They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

    My ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
    Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
    They won't let go

    Ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
    Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
    They won't let go

  • Zodeus BloombergWho are the men from the video
  • Slytherin Girl from ItalyIt's a song about why men get dropped, so stop being cynical about her body. I love the song, because if a man does that to women he is seen like "alpha", but when a woman leaves them, they get confused...

    I think we have our hearts broken. But you have to be careful with who you date. Every relationship will influence the next one. Of course we are trying to do the right things, but women need their independence as well.

    It's better to be alone, than being in a toxic relationship. So when someone leaves just LET them go. I love the comments of toxic men, saying that after 1 day with her, they would run away... I'd say most men don't even get 1 date of 2 hours. I've left people right after a first date. It's called "self respect"...you know the only thing that matters is to be financially independent, the rest is really "details"... I don't stay friends with people from the past, and I don't even think about who they might be dating now in my place. And men don't like that. They have their ego somewhere up in the sky,and they are competitive... whatever that means. Integrity matters the most.

    I wouldn't even bother to write them a song to be honest. I just don't think about the past. Life is too short. If they are with someone else oh well ... Good for them. Their absence is the most important thing for me. Plan and build your life around a dream, a job, a career, NOT people. They leave when things are not convenient anymore and we have to stop trying to change one another. There is only acceptance of who we are inside. If that "acceptance" is not there, then you know it's time to go.
  • John from Syracuse, New YorkJudging from the lyrics of this song, and the inspiration of it according to Ms King, she clearly has a problem with men. Just becouse you've been hurt by guys, doesn't make it okay for you to hurt them, 2 wrongs don't make a right, infact that's all the more reason not to hurt them becouse you know what it's like on the receiving end. Young lady you need to grow up. Looks to me like you take great pleasure in dissing guys. And you say you're not a mean person, yet you've hurt numerous guys for what I see as no good reason, and in my book that makes you a liar, a hipocrite. If I was one of your so called boy friends, you never would of hurt me becouse I wouldn't of given you the chance becouse after one day with you, you'd never see me again, after one look at you I'd not have stuck my neck out, infact one look at you, and that would be a deal breaker for me, you're not my type to begin with, I wouldn't give you a second look sweetheart!.
  • Glenn from UsaIt's just you.
  • Scott from UsaDoes anyone else notice that this song sounds a little like flagpole sitta by Harvey danger or is it just me?
