Well, I'm sick and tired
Of your alibi, now
Your indiscreet lies, now
Just gon' get you by, now
Over and over and over and over
And over and over, again

And your family
Your far superiority
Your delusions of grandeur
Are gonna keep cuttin' you free, yeah
Over and over and over and over
And over and over and over, again

But you can count me out
'Cause without a doubt
You know I paid the price
'Bout cold as ice
Now we know you're not Miss Nice
And I paid the price

Up and down
Round-ound you go
Don't you know one monkey
Don't stop no show?

It's plain to see
You're in need of help
But I can't go on
And whip myself up
Over and over and over and over
And over and over and over, again

Hey! Hey!
Whipped to my soul

Hit it!


(It's alright, it's alright)
(It's alright, it's alright)
(It's alright, it's alright)

Alright to count me out
('Cause he's so right)
'Cause without a doubt
('Cause he's so right)
You know I paid the price

Yeah, you're cold as ice
('Cause he's so right)
Well, you're a-not Miss Nice
And I paid the price



'Show business, when you don't have
any talent you need a sponsor'

New York City, you're calling angels
(Take your pride)
Los Angeles, you're calling angels
(You'll pay the price)
Recount it!

(You'll pay the price)
(You'll pay the lies)
(He paid the price)
(He paid the price)

Now, recount, Ellie!
(Don't, he's paid the price)
Recount!
(He's paid the price)
It's the same thing!

(He's paid your price)
(He's paid the price)
(He's paid the price)
(He's paid the lie)

Don't descriminate your angel!
(Don't, he's paid the lie)
(He's paid the price)

Don't descriminate your angel!
(Don't, he's paid the price)
You can't afford to!
(He's paid the lie)

I can't afford to!
(Don't, he's paid your price)
Don't descriminate your angels!
(Don't, he's paid the price)

Don't descriminate your angels!
(Oh no, he's paid the price)
(Oh, but you know)
(Don't mess around)
You'll know it, too
(Oh, but you know)
(Don't mess around)
Don't descriminate your angel!
(No, don't mess around)

Take all of your money
(All of your money)
Can't buy fame
(Now, that he knows)
No, it won't!
(Now, that he knows)
(Now, that he knows)
(Ooh, no!)
(Don't mess around)
No, don't call his angel

Now, we know you're not gon' pay
Even if that heaven pay you.

~
