Get Him Back

Album: Extraordinary Machine (2005)
  • One man, he disappoint me
    He give me the gouge and he take my glee
    Now every other man I see
    Remind me of the one man who disappoined me

    Wait till I get him back
    He won't have a back to scratch
    Yeah, keep turning that chin
    And you will see my face
    As I figure how to kill what I cannot catch

    So I say, and on I go
    To another one who disappoint me so

    Next one up, a contemptible snob
    He lived to put things in their place
    He did a commendable job
    He put himself so low
    He can hardly even look me in the face

    So wait till I get him back
    He won't have a back to scratch
    Yeah, keep turning that chin
    And you will see my face
    As I figure how to kill what I cannot catch

    Oh, he made my blood just burn
    I flipped so far, I thought that I would not return

    But the last one I had who was getting my hopes up
    I might've been a little fast to dismiss
    I think he let me down, when he didn't disappoint me
    He didn't always guess right, but he usually got my gist

    So wait till I get him back
    I'm gonna bring him home and I'll watch him unpack
    Yeah, keep turning that chin
    And you will see my face is fixed on the one
    I'm gonna get back

    I'm gonna get him back, I am
    I'm gonna get him back
    I really am
    I'm gonna get him back
    I'm gonna get him back
    I am, I'm gonna get him back, oh yeah Writer/s: Fiona Apple Maggart
