Heard from friends of mine you'd been telling lies
How I was wrapped up in you
But surprise surprise, surprise surprise
I never wanted you that bad

(Cause I) knew you was telling lies
Knew you was telling lies
I could see it in your eyes

Why did you have to go and fool after
We had got along so fine?
But surprise surprise, surprise surprise
Fate is nothing strange to me

I hope you're proud of all your chasing around
Thinking I was alone all night
But surprise surprise, surprise surprise
You're only fooling yourself

Yeah, baby, why did you have to go and fool around
After we got along so fine?
I knew you was telling lies, telling lies
Yes I did
We got along so fine

But I knew you was telling lies
Knew you was talking jive
I could see it in your eyes
