You’re no good

philip lacey 1956 (United Kingdom)

You’re no good you’re a bad bitch babe
You’re no good you cheat and you lie
You’re no good no not even maybe
This man is leaving and saying goodbye

You have taken me way past the limit
I just can’t take any more
I’ll be out of your life right this minute
I’m walking out through the door

You’re no good you’re a bad bitch babe
You’re no good you cheat and you lie
You’re no good no not even maybe
This man is leaving and saying goodbye

I have tried I have made excuses
For all your lies and deceits
And now that I’ve run out of uses
I’ll be leaving quiet and discreet

You’re no good you’re a bad bitch babe
You’re no good you cheat and you lie
You’re no good no not even maybe
This man is leaving and saying goodbye

Threes nothing you can say
To make me change my mind and stay
So I’ll be on my way
I’m living for myself from today

You’re no good you’re a bad bitch babe
You’re no good you cheat and you lie
You’re no good no not even maybe
This man is leaving and saying goodbye
