Lyrics

He Shouldn’t Have Let Her

He shouldn’t have let her
Get the better of him
He should have known better
Than let her under his skin
He shouldn’t have let her
Get the better of him
He shouldn’t have let her
Get under his skin
He Shouldn’t Have Let Her

He shouldn’t have gone there
He should have stayed well clear
He should have listened
But his ears just wouldn’t hear
She wasn’t that clever
She wasn’t that cool
She was sweet on the outside
He was nobody’s fool
But he got it all wrong there

Mirror, mirror on the wall
She’s not the fairest of them all
God almighty up above
Whatever happened to the love

I n s t r u m e n t a l

She wanted his money
Oh but he just wanted her love
She got all she wanted
But it was never enough
He shouldn’t have let
Get inside his head
He shouldn’t have let her
Get into his bed
He Shouldn’t Have Let Her

She’ll get her comeuppance
At the end of the day
What goes around comes 'round
Well, that’s what they all say
She’ll only have herself to blame
She has no fear
She has no shame
He shouldn’t have let her
Get the better of him
He shouldn’t have let her
Get under his skin

He Shouldn’t Have Let Her
He Shouldn’t Have Let Her

Oh this boy is in trouble now

                                                 

Inspired by a book I read about a man who fell in love with a
New York hooker - was scary!
