You told me there wasn't a lesson in lovin' that you hadn't learned.
Oh yeah? Oh yeah?
You told me that you could keep playin' with fire with out gettin' burned.
Oh yeah? Oh yeah?
So you met someone who set you back on your heels, Goody Goody!
So you met someone and now you know how it feels, Goody Goody!
So you gave him your heart too, Just as I gave mine to you,
And he broke it in little pieces, now how do you do.
So you lie awake just singin' the blues all night, Goody Goody!
So you think that love's a barrel of dynamite.
Hooray and hallalujah! You had it comin' to ya.
Goody Goody for him, Goody Goody for me,
And I hope you're satisfied you rascal you.
