That boy took my love away.
Oh, he’ll regret it someday-i-ay,
But this boy wants you back again.

That boy isn’t good for you.
Tho’ he may want you too,
This boy wants you back again.

Oh, and this boy would be happy just to love you
But oh my, that boy won’t be happy
Till he’s seen you cry hi-hi-hi.

This boy wouldn’t mind the pain,
Would always feel the same
if this boy gets you back again.
This boy, this boy.
This boy, this boy…
