  • It took about a dozen quarters, half an hour, two minutes
    Twenty seven seconds to get through to you
    And before I even had the chance to finish half a sentence
    She was spoutin, spittin, didn't wanna listen
    Nothing I can ever say or do will ever be enough for you

    Cause you made up your mind, yeah I made up my mind
    You're gonna say shoo fly don't bother me

    At the edge of goodbye there are always two sides
    That cut like a knife, no wrong and no right
    When you're standing on the edge of goodbye

    You're calling me at two a.m. I know you're whiskied up again
    And I don't really wanna have to deal with this again
    You say I never gave you half a snowball's chance in hell
    Oh well I know I didn't kiss and stop you're bitching
    Even if I had it's none your business, will you ever learn
    It's no concern to you

    Cause I made up mind, so you made up your mind
    Don't need no reason why, gonna hang up the phone


    So you made up your mind, yeah I made up my mind
    You gonna say shoo fly, gonna hang up the phone
