  • You're tellin' lies, so don't you criticize
    Yeah I got used, all messed up and abused
    You let me down, with all your runnin' round
    Still you pretend and try to call me friend

    Don't say a word, I know just what I heard
    Yeah you've been loose, you just got no excuse
    Just feel my rage, why can't you come of age?
    I felt it all, just like a cannonball

    Then you got mad, you said that I'm all bad
    So what's the use, you lied and that's the truth
    You took the key and drove right out on me
    I never knew put all my trust in you

    Okay, that's it, I'm leaving now, I quit
    I was unwise, so don't apologize
    I paid the price, for taking your advice
    I felt it all, just like a cannonball
    Yeah like a cannonball

    You can say what you want all day
    But I've never been so outraged
    I'm washing my hands of you
    How could you be so untrue
    You know I can't stand no more
    You know I can't stand no more
    I can't stand no more, can't stand no more, no Writer/s: RICHARD DAVIES
