Lyrics
I read her letters and I saw her picture
And I smelled her cheap perfume, hmm, it must have come from you
How could you touch her, lay down beside her
Well, there just ain’t no excuse, you shouldn’t have been so loose
I saw the telephone bill, you must be out of your mind
If you think you can smooth it over then you’re wasting your time

Well, I’m willing to forgive you but I can’t forget
Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time
And I guess I can go on although I must admit
I’ve been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin’ that I’m gonna mess around some time

You’re such a liar, you took her and her children
Out for the afternoon while I was sittin’ waitin’ on you
How could you do it? You should’ve been here with me
You just couldn’t do it, you had to be in the streets
Well, I heard through the grapevine you’ve been messing around
When you thought you were getting over, that’s when my baby, I found, oh

Well, I’m willing to forgive you but I can’t forget
Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time, you really hurt me
And I guess I can go on although I must admit
I’ve been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin’ that I’m gonna mess around some time

I gave my heart, gave my time, gave my soul ’cause love was blind
I can’t explain this poor excuse of a man, of a boy who was born to lose
I paid the rent, washed your clothes, cooked your food and only God knows
Only God knows why I stay with you, I guess I, I’m in love

(Well, I’m willing to forgive you but I can’t forget)
Oh, baby, I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
(Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time)
Ooh, you really hurt me this time, baby
(And I guess I can go on although I must admit)  Although I must admit
(I’ve been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin’ that I’m gonna mess around some time)
I’m gonna mess around some time

I gave my heart, gave my time, gave my soul ’cause love was blind
I can’t explain this poor excuse of a man, of a boy who was born to lose
I paid the rent, I washed your clothes, cooked your food and only God knows
Only God knows why I stay with you, I guess I, I’m in love

(Well, I’m willing to forgive you but I can’t forget)  Yeah
(Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time)
Ooh, oh, baby, you hurt me, you hurt me
(And I guess I can go on although I must admit)  Although I must admit
(I’ve been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin’ that I’m gonna mess around some time)

Català – Disposada A Perdonar
He llegit les seves cartes i he vist la seva foto
I he ensumat el seu perfum barat, hmm, deu venir de tu
Com has pogut tocar-la, ficar-te al llit al seu costat
Bé, simplement no hi ha cap excusa, no hauries d’haver estat tan fàcil
He vist la factura telefònica, deus estar boig
Si creus que pots suavitzar-ho, llavors estàs perdent el temps

Bé, estic disposada a perdonar-te, però no puc oblidar
Perquè realment, realment, realment, realment aquest cop m’has fet mal
I imagino que puc continuar, encara que he d’admetre
Que he estat ocupada, ocupada, ocupada, ocupada pensant que perdré el temps

Ets un mentider, vas sortir amb ella i els seus fills
Per la tarda, mentre jo estava asseguda esperant-te
Com vas poder fer-ho? Hauries d’haver estat aquí amb mi
Senzillament, no podies fer-ho, havies d’estar al carrer
Bé, he sentit rumors que has estat tontejant
Quan creies que te n’estaves sortint, és quan, xicot meu, me’n vaig adonar, oh

Bé, estic disposada a perdonar-te, però no puc oblidar
Perquè realment, realment, realment, realment aquest cop m’has fet mal, realment m’has fet mal
I imagino que puc continuar, encara que he d’admetre
Que he estat ocupada, ocupada, ocupada, ocupada pensant que perdré el temps

T’he donat el meu cor, el meu temps, la meva ànima perquè l’amor era cec
No puc entendre aquesta pobra excusa d’un home, d’un nen que ha nascut per perdre
He pagat el lloguer, t’he rentat la roba, cuinat el teu menjar i només Déu sap
Només Déu sap per què em quedo amb tu, jo crec, que estic enamorada

(Bé, estic disposada a perdonar-te, però no puc oblidar)
Oh, noi, estic enamorada, estic enamorada, estic enamorada, estic enamorada
(Perquè realment, realment, realment, realment aquest cop m’has fet mal)
Ooh, realment aquest cop m’has fet mal, noi
(I imagino que puc continuar, encara que he d’admetre)  Encara que he d’admetre
(Que he estat ocupada, ocupada, ocupada, ocupada pensant que perdré el temps)
Que perdré el temps

T’he donat el meu cor, el meu temps, la meva ànima perquè l’amor era cec
No puc entendre aquesta pobra excusa d’un home, d’un nen que ha nascut per perdre
He pagat el lloguer, t’he rentat la roba, cuinat el teu menjar i només Déu sap
Només Déu sap per què em quedo amb tu, jo crec, que estic enamorada

(Bé, estic disposada a perdonar-te, però no puc oblidar) 
(Perquè realment, realment, realment, realment aquest cop m’has fet mal)
Oh, oh, noi, m’has fet mal, m’has fet mal
(I imagino que puc continuar, encara que he d’admetre)  Encara que he d’admetre
(Que he estat ocupada, ocupada, ocupada, ocupada pensant que perdré el temps)
