Tired of playin' this game
And I won't play it no more
And I won't take it no more, ahh
Through with being your fool
And I won't do it no more
And I won't, I won't keep up this act
Not for one minute
I'm gonna pull, I'm gonna pull this curtain down, no

This time I won't play this game
I made a vow to make a change and
I bow out
(Huu)
(I won't be hangin' around baby)
I decline to take the pain and
I resign the masquerade and
I bow out
(Ahh)
(I won't be stayin' around baby)
I bow out
(I)
(I bow)
(Woo)

Can't go on with the show
You're just a stage I went through
Now you're just fadin' from view, yeah
It's time for a change of scene
Guess I'll be takin' my leave
I guess, I won't, I won't stay in this play
Not for one minute
I'm gonna make, I'm gonna make my exit now
Oh baby

This time I won't play this game
(This time I won't)
I made a vow to make a change and
(I made a vow)
I bow out
(I)
(I won't be hangin' around baby)
I decline to take the pain
(I decline)
I resign the masquerade and
(Oh yeah)
I bow out
(I won't be stayin' around baby)
I bow out
(Oh, oh, oh, ooh)

When you're left standin' on that stage all alone
Maybe you'll realize
You should have learned to treat me right
And when this final act is finally through
Maybe you'll wish you'd been
The kind of man you should have been
Now watch me say goodbye and walk rightout of your life
Oh baby, alright baby

This time I won't play this game
(This time)
I made a vow to make a change and
(This time I made up my mind)
I bow out
(I)
(I bow)
(I won't be hangin' around baby)
I decline to take the pain and
(I decline boy)
I resign the masquerade and
(No masquerade)
I bow out
(Gonna bow out)
(I won't be stayin' around baby)

This time I won't play this game
I made a vow to make a change and
(Yeah ooh)
I bow out
(Said I)
(Gonna, I gonna bow out)
(Did you belive that?)
I decline to take the pain and
(Haa eee my)
I resign the masquerade and
(Haa eee you will be there)
I bow out
(Hmm)
(I won't be stayin' around baby)

This time I won't play this game
I made a vow to make a change and
(Yeah boo)
I bow out
(I)
(I bow)
(Ooh baby I bow out)
I decline to take the pain and
(I better, I bow out)
I resign the masquerade and
I bow out
