  • He wore that cowboy hat to cover up his horns
    Sweet talking forked tongue had a tempting charm
    Before I turned around that girl was gone
    All I can say is bartender pour me something strong

    Here's to the past they can kiss my glass
    I hope she's happy with him
    Here's to the girl who wrecked my world
    That angel who did me in
    I think the devil drives a Coup de Ville
    I watched them drive away over the hill
    Not against her will, I've got time to kill
    Down in Brokenheartsville

    It was long and chrome sittin' in the lot
    Fire engine red that thing was hot
    He revved it up she waved goodbye
    Love's gone to hell and so have I

    Here's to the past they can kiss my glass
    I hope she's happy with him
    Here's to the girl who wrecked my world
    That angel who did me in
    I think the devil drives a Coup de Ville
    I watched them drive away over the hill
    Not against her will, I've got time to kill
    Down in Brokenheartsville

    Here's to the past they can kiss my glass
    I hope she's happy with him
    Here's to the girl who wrecked my world
    That angel who did me in
    I think the devil drives a Coup de Ville
    I watched them drive away over the hill
    Not against her will, I've got time to kill
