I didn't sleep a wink all night long
Waitin' by my telephone
You said you'd call me 'bout a quarter to ten
But you went and stood me up again

I don't know what you're gonna do, but
I'm gonna forget about you, yeah

I'm gonna take your picture off my wall
And then I'm goin' out and have a ball
Too many fishes in the deep blue sea
For me to let you make a fool of me

I don't know what you're gonna do, but
I'm gonna forget about you

Please don't tell me that you're sorry
Don't give me the same old line
I know for a fact if I took you back
You'd make me lose my mind baby

And if I lost it, it would be my fault
So I think it's time we called a halt
I've had as much of you as I can stand
Instead of me, mistreat some other man

I don't know what you're gonna do, but
I'm gonna forget about you

Baby, I'm gonna take your picture off my wall
Then I'm goin' out and have a ball
Too many fishes in the deep blue sea
For me to let you make a fool of me

I don't know what you're gonna do, but
I'm gonna forget about you

Yeah, forget about you baby
I'm gonna forget about you
I'm gonna forget about you baby
I'm gonna forget about you
