(Jarvis and Miki)
I've been so happy since I walked away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cos you were nothing but a big mistake
And life is wonderful, now that I'm rid of you

Oh I must've been crazy to have stayed with you
I can't believe I thought I was in love with you
But now the scales have fallen I can really see
And I say: "Go to hell", 'cos that's where you took me

Well, I've felt better since I slammed that door
You always cramped my style, I never noticed before
It's been a non-stop party since I flew the coop
I can't believe I fell for such a loser like you

And is it any wonder that I felt so blue
When I was always having to put up with you

Oh, here we go again, just lay the blame on me
Don't say another word, 'cos sweetheart, you're history

I know that you miss me really, bet you wish that you still had me. You'll never find someone like me but I've got no regrets at all.
I bet you're loving every minute of it. Sitting the the kitchen eating meagre meals with the curtains closed. Go on, be a bed-sit martyr babe. I don't give a damn anyway.

'Cos I've met this girl and she's so good to me
She's really beautiful, fantastic company
Oh, when I'm with her I realise what love can be
'Cos she's fifty times the person you'll ever be

Good luck, mister, do you think I care?
Since you've been gone the offers have been everywhere
I've got a million guys just lining up for me
I've turned a corner, boy, my life is ecstasy

(Jarvis and Miki)
Well, I've been in heaven since I walk away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cos you were nothing but a waste of space
And life is wonderful now that I'm over you
