You're No Good

Feeling better now that we're through
Feeling better now I'm over you
I learned my lesson, from the start
Now I know how you really are
You're no good, you're no good
You're no good, baby you're no good
Gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good
You're no good, baby you're no good

I broke a heart that was gentle and true
Broke a heart for someone like you
I'll beg her forgiveness on bended knee
But I wouldn't blame her if she said to me
You're no good, you're no good
You're no good, baby you're no good
Gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good
You're no good, baby you're no good
No good

You're no good, you're no good
You're no good, baby you're no good
Gonna say it again
No good, you're no good
You're no good, baby you're no good

I'm telling you now baby, I'm leaving today
