Too cleaver by half

I know your only doing what comes naturally (x2)

Oh you, you and her a pretty girl
You both plan to leave your lovers
And run off with each other
And leave us to look like fools

Oh you, you said I know I've been unkind
And you swore blinded it was the last time you'd ever leave a girl behind
But how did she know you were telling the truth?

Oh you thought you were clever
You thought you were smart
But you were just too clever by half
But you were just too clever by half

while you were making plans I was going with her man
Then we left you to be clever
To be clever together

Oh you, you thought that you were pretty smart
But when you and her were out I would go round to his house
And I don't have to tell you what we did next

No I don't have to tell you what we did next (x3)

But you're not so clever now
Oh you thought you were clever
You thought you were smart
But you were just too clever by half
But you were just too clever by half

while you were making plans I was going with her man
Then we left you to be clever
To be clever together

I know your only doing what comes naturally (x4)
