Shoulda Known Better

lyrics

Well he could be the sweetest
And he sure knew how to charm
Said you were his onliest girl
When he held you in his arms

But that man he had a bad side
And everybody knew
Now you're just a fool for love
Looks like the joke's on you

Shoulda known better
With a man like that you should've known

Well girl you saw it comin'
You knew it from the start
You knew that he was trouble
So why'd you let him have your heart

Now you're lonely and you're cryin'
'Cause that man he could not be true
You already knew the punchline
But the joke is still on you

Shoulda known better
With a man like that you should've known

Your friends all said he'd do you wrong
So when the truth came out
it was all one big "I told you so,
you have nothing to complain about"

Woo!

But that man he had a bad side
And everybody knew
You already knew the punchline
But the joke is still on you

Shoulda known better
With a man like that you should've known

Shoulda known better
With a man like that you should've known

Shoulda known better
With a man like that you should've known
