You're going to get it straight from the shoulder
Can't you see the party's over?
(Hey) Let me go

Can't you get it through your thick head
This affair is finished, dead?
Please let me go

I've tried giving you the velvet gloves
I've tried giving you the knockout punch
Hey, let me go

Let me go

I find it hard, hard to be cruel
With a smile, don't you?
You'll never find that perfect love
That you read about, that you dream about

Maybe I'll become a playboy, hang around in gay bars
And move to the west side of town

So you think I'm giving you the brush off
No, I'm just telling you to shove off
Hey, baby won't you let me go?

This ain't the time to waste my breath
I'm going into sudden death
Hey, let me go

Can't you get it through your thick head
This affair is dead as a dodo?
Hey, baby won't you let me go?

The bell has rung and I've called time
The chairs is on the table, out the door, baby
Baby, won't you let me go?

Let me go
Baby, won't you let me go?
