He thought he was “Mr. Big Shot”

I had to quickly put him in his place.

He even tried to dictate what I wore;

he thought he could tell me what to do.

 

I had to quickly put him in his place

his ego was just getting too big.

He thought he could tell me what to do;

He wasn’t good enough for a woman like me.

 

His ego was just getting too big

and he’s such a small man.

He wasn’t good enough for a woman like me;

I had to move on to someone new.

Affair

Guilty hearts lay still

hidden in a secret place

where they can’t be found.
