I'm giving you my heart and my soul
I've given you more than you'll ever know
I'm giving you just about everything I can
Can't you see that I'm just only one man, yeah?

I took you out to the picture show
Then I took you walkin' outdoors
I walked you up and down the block
Then I warned you, baby, this has got to stop

This has got to stop, you're way over the top
Pack my things and walk, we can't even talk
This has got to stop, I just had enough
I'm gonna call you a bluff, walk you one more lap

And I watched you watching me
As I watched you walk away from me
And I went off to that far country
I took a plane out to that Newfoundland
And you said to me that you didn't understand

This has got to stop, you're way over the top
I'm gonna pack my things and walk, we don't even talk
This has got to stop, baby, I just had enough
I'm gonna call you a bluffer, walk me one more lap

Well, I came back home and I burnt our house down
I watched it crumble to the ground
Oh, it caved in like a piece of balsa wood
I turned to you and said, "Baby, this is just no good"

And I worked and I tried to build it all back up again
The day you told me that you had really changed
Then you knocked down all my castles in the sand
Then I said, "Baby, I know now just where we stand"

This has got to stop, you're way over the top
Pack my bags and walk, we don't even talk
This has got to stop, I've just had enough
I'm gonna call you a bluffer and this has got to stop

This has got to stop, moving over the top
I've just had enough, gonna call you a bluffer
This has got to stop, this has got to stop
Moving over the top, this has got to stop
