  • You're just another in a long line of men she screwed
    Just another in a long line of men she knew
    And yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do
    Like all the boys before
    Another dream come true

    It's a power, it's a power, it's a power move
    And while I'm not quite sure what she's trying to prove
    They all say she's got low self-esteem
    So, why is she looking like the cat who got the cream

    But you, you can do better than
    You can do better than that

    I know you've been feeling sad
    I've got no right to be mad, mad
    But you can do better than that
    And I know that you're not to blame
    You just got caught in a game, game
    But you can do better than that
    Better than that
    Better than that, ooh
    Better than that
    Better than that
    Better than that, ooh

    She's the apple of everybody's eye
    With an angel voice, devil in disguise
    Got a sour face like a poisoned fruit
    That the boys can taste 'til they're out of use

    And she'll network 'til her dreams come true
    Even if it means getting into bed with you
    Everybody's friend, does it ring a bell
    I know a little too much, but I'll never tell

    But you, you can do better than
    You can do better than that

    I know you've been feeling sad
    I've got no right to be mad, mad
    But you can do better than that
    And I know you've been feeling down,
    You're always out on the town, town
    But you can do better than that
    Better than that
    Better than that, ooh
    Better than that
    Better than that
    Better than that, ooh

    Well, I guess it's just what humans do
    Hook up with other people 'til it all falls through
    And when it's over, they go out and try to heal their pain
    Hook up with another lover, do it all again
    I'm not passing judgment on her sexual life
    I'm passing judgment on the way she always stuck her knife
    In my back ever since we were starting out
    Suspicious from the start, I always had my doubts about you

    But you, you can do better than
    You can do better than that

    I know you've been feeling sad
    I've got no right to be mad, mad
    But you can do better than that
    And I know that you're not to blame
    You just got caught in a game, game
    But you can do better than that
    Better than that
    Better than that, ooh
    Better than that
    Better than that
    Better than that, ooh Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
