And I wish I'd never met you
And I wish that I would cry
And I hunger for you, baby
And I know deep down inside

And I wish that I had a dollar
And I wish I had a dime
And I wish I could collect from you
For all your sexual crimes, yeah

And I wish that I had a dollar
I would buy you another drink
And all the love you'd taken back
Was all that you could sink

And all the things you told me
And all there was to tell

And all the love you take, baby
Was all end up in hell, well huh

And I wish that day I met you
Would have (...) and let me down
And all my dreams were broken
And just lying on the ground

I lost the day I met you
And I cursed the way of life
And all that you had broken me
I was all chocked up inside, well

And I wish the day I told you
Was all but left unsaid
And I just can't trust you, baby
You're just lying on your head, well

Uh-huh-huh-huh, uh-huh-huh
Uh-huh-huh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh-huh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh-huh-huh, uh-huh

And I wish I had a dollar
And I wish I had a dime
For all  the lies you told me
And all your sexual crimes

And I've just got to leave you
Lying in your dreams
Cause all those lies are broken
And all those sexual dreams, well

Uh-huh-huh-huh, uh-huh
