Lyrics

I'll Be with Someone Else (ver. 2-3)

There are quite a lot of options
Some guys like clothes shopping
Others have big biceps
To carry you up stairways
If you're ever injured
Skating in the winter
It can be real dangerous
All I'm saying is—

—wait, girl
Think before you leave me
Someday you might need me
And I won't be there for you
I'll be with someone else

Yeah, I made some costly errors
Never made you dinner
Made you watch the ballgame
And cheered a bit too loud
When all you needed was a
Shoulder you could cry on
What the heck was I on
To let you get a—

—way, girl?
Think before you leave me
Someday you might need me
And I won't be there for you
I'll be with someone else

Everyone should get a second chance
When they make the mistake of their life
But if you walk out and find someone
Tall and dark and kind of dumb
I can't guarantee that I'll be free
When you come crawling back to me someday

Guess you'd better pack your baggage
Fill out your luggage tags in
Case they get misplaced when
You are flying home to
See your mom and dad that's
What most people do when
They have had a breakup
They need someone to care

Wait, girl
Think before you leave me
Someday you might need me
And I won't be there for you
I'll be with someone else
