Don’t Let Her Ruin You

You float down the river,
You throw yourself at work.

You hide behind your children,
With them you do not hurt.


But the point you are missing,
As you walk your desolate life.
Don’t let her ruin you,
She’s just your ex-wife.


Ohho’ohh...

You spent your years with the one,
You thought she was forever.
You worked, you played, you raised your kids.
The children you had together.

Then one day you walked inside,
To find her with someone else.
She was in your room with another man,
Aman who wasn’t you.

Ohh a’ohh, hoo ooh, ooh ooh, hoo da-y’ooh

The rage inside could not be contained.
How did this happen that you were betrayed?
You walked away and forever declared,
It won’t happen again, her life you did spare.

So, you both moved on, and you went your own ways.
You met someone else, and she brightened your day.
You faced a chance to have restored love,
But you ran out of fear of being disposed ahh-ahh-ahh of.

Oh,the point you are missing,
As you walk your desolate life.
Don’t let her ruin you,
She’s just your ex-wife.
Oh, the point you are missing,
As you walk your desolate life.
Oh, don’t let her ruin you,
She’s only your fucking ex-wife....

Ohh-ahh, ahh dada, ahh dada, ahh d’adaoh, ya yada hoo.
Hoo, ooh, ooh ,ooh, hoo da yada ooh...
