I saw you (and him) walking in the rain You were holding hands and I'll never be the same Tossing and turning another sleepless night The rain crashes against my window pane Jumped into my car didn't drive too far That moment I knew I would never be the same Now here you are begging to me To give our love another try Girl I love you and I always will But darling right now I've got to say goodbye 'Cause (I saw you) Hey hey baby how ya doin' come on in here (Walking in the rain) Got some hot chocolate on the stove waiting for you Listen first things first let me hang up the coat (You were holding hands and I'll) Yeah how was your day today Did you miss me (Never be the same) You did? Yeah? I missed you too I missed you so much I followed you today (I saw you) That's right now close your mouth 'Cause you cold busted (Walking in the rain) Now just sit down here, sit down here I'm so upset with you I don't know what to do (You were holding hands and I'll) You know my first impulse was to run up on you And do a Rambo (Never be the same) I was about to jam you and flat blast both of you But I didn't want to mess up this thirty seven hundred dollar lynx coat So instead I chilled, that's right chilled I called up the bank and took out every dime Than I canceled all your credit cards I stuck you up for every piece of jewelery I ever bought you! Don't go lookin' in that closet 'cause everything you came here with is packed up and waiting for you in the guest room. What were you thinking? You don't mess with the Juice! I gave you silk suits, blue diamonds and gucci handbags I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce! But now I can't give you nothing but advice Cause you're still young, yeah, you're young And you're gonna find somebody like me one of these days Until then, you know what you gotta do? You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing, Punch-bucket-shoe-wearing crumb cake I saw you with Cause you dismissed! That's right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don't you know That, you without me is like corn flakes without the milk! This is my world. You're just a squirrel trying to get a nut! Now get on outta here. Scat! Don't touch that coat...
