lyrics

g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone
and now you feel you finally found a home
and don't you think you oughta hang up the phone
so hang it up now

g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone
a queen without a king, who's claiming the throne
and don't you think you oughta hang up the phone
hang up the phone
so hang it up now

you've been thinking love's a bit like drinking, and...
it's time you sober up and understand
your happiness may not lie in a man
another clone
so girl you're better off alone

n-n-n-now and then it's good to say goodbye
'cause after all the tears that you cry
you might just see us on the other side
rid of your cloud

(no more clouds)

g-g-g-g-g-girl, empty out your bed
and while you're at it why not empty your head
of all the lovely things that they have said
they have said
to keep you around?

maybe years from now when all is said and done
you won't lie in the arms of anyone
who's faded out like all the other loves
just hearts and bones
so girl you're better off alone

on a desert isle
maybe for a while
where you will learn to
never mind the ticking crocodile

g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone
and now you feel you finally found a home
and don't you think you ought to hang up the phone
hang up the phone... so hang it up now
('cause you're better off alone)
hang it up!
