You wrote a message on the mirror with your lipstick,
You said that I was dumber than a dipstick,
So kind of you to let me know you were gone.
You thought I didn't know you got yourself a new man,
You thought I didn't know you got yourself a new plan,
I ain't as dumb as I look--I knew it all along -- I couldn't wait.

CHORUS
Thank you for bein' you
Makin' me be your fool
You're cruel
Thank you for leaving me
Thanks for deceiving me
Not cool
Walkin' out of my life
Becoming my ex-wife
Hot damn
Takin' my dog and truck
Leavin' your junky stuff
Door slam
Only one thing, only one thing to do
Is thank you for bein', thank you for bein' you

The girl next door is a real hot tomato,
We're goin' out tonight in her Eldorado,
She's been cheerin' me up since the moment I knew--about you...
You're the reason I'm celebratin' bad luck,
I'll get a new dog, I'll get myself a new truck,
The ones you took are old and temperamental just like you,
Let me express my gratitude.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Those lovey dovey words you used to tell me were just pretend,
The greatest gift you ever gave me was sayin' you won't be back again,
So...

CHORUS
