The Lyrics

Ever have a GF like this?
No, no, no, no, no
You followed me around like a shadow
And you were always in my face
You weren't content to let me leave, you're so nasty
You drove me out of my mind

So I was the one with all the money
while you were the one with a hot body
A beautiful face without a brain
Little pleasure, but so much pain

(Chorus)
Looked a 10 but we're a Zero
All you did was use me
You were but a status symbol
But you kept me from better things

Perfect couple, but no one noticed
That you didn't have a heart
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I knew it
All my friends that you had screwed

(Chorus)

Looked a 10 but we're a Zero
All you did was use me
You were but a status symbol
But you kept me from better things
You were a worthless human being

Yes, a useless human being
A drinking, drugged-up, freakish thing
But then I said goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye (my wallet dry)

I used to love you, but you made me cry
And I know someday soon you're gonna die

Goodbye Lexi
Back to Europe you should fly
