Hey fellas, have you heard the news?
You know that Annie's back in town?
It won't take long just watch and see
How the fellas lay their money down.
Her style is new but the face is the same
As it was so long ago,
But from her eyes, a diff'rent smile
Like that of one who knows.
Well, it's been ten years and maybe more
Since I first set eyes on you;
The best years of my life gone by,
Here I am alone and blue.
Some people cry and some people die
By the wicked ways of love;
But I'll just keep on rollin' along
With the grace of the Lord above.
People talkin' all around 'bout the way you left me flat,
I don't care what the people say, I know where their jive is at.
One thing I do have on my mind, if you can clarify please do,
It's the way you call me by another guy's name when I try to make love to you!
I try to make love but it ain't no use.
Give it to me, give it!
Work so hard I couldn't unwind,
Get some money saved;
Abuse my love a thousand times,
However hard I tried.
Heartbreaker, your time has come,
Can't take your evil way;
