High and dry, well, I'm up here with no warning (yes)
High and dry, well, I couldn't get a word in

High and dry, oh what a way to go
She left me standing here just high and dry

A minute I was up there standing by her side
The next I was down there, well, left out of the ride

Anything I wished for I only had to ask her, yes
I think she found out it was money I was after

High and dry, oh what a weird letdown
She left me standing here just high and dry
All right

It's lucky that I didn't have any love towards her
Next time I'll make sure that the girl will be much poorer

Well she left me standing here just high and dry
