Well I knew she belonged to someone else at the time
But lonely look in women are a weakness of mine
So I bought all she said about the love he never gave her
And figured I just love her some and do us both a favor
Just as I got up to leave he walked through the door
And I guess I thought he'd be surprised
But he looked at me as if to say he's been there before
And he offered me these words to the wise
He said you know she's a cheater son but you believe that you're the one
Who's got a lot of what it takes to change her
And I know now that you can't get her you ain't much but that don't matter
Nothing suits her better than a stranger
And the stranger man the better and the chances are she'll set her
Eyes on you the next time she goes slummin'
So you sit back and wait your turn boy you got lots of times to learn boy
Cool it while you can your time's comin'
[ fiddle ]
Well it happens that in time it happened just like he said
And soon enough her shoes were settin' under my bed
And I'll confess I did my best to prove that man had lied
But nothing short of suicide could keep her satisfied
So buddy losing her to you was just a matter of time
And it's her time for finding something new
Nothing I can say is gonna make you change your mind
So I'll just give the same advice to you
You know she's a cheater son...
I said cool it while you can cause your time's comin'
