"Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover"

(As recorded by Paul Simon)
PAUL SIMON

"The problem is all inside your head," she said to me
"The answer is easy if you take it logic'lly
I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free
There must be, fifty ways to leave your lover."

She said, "It's really not my habit to intrude
Furthermore I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude
There must be, fifty ways to leave your lover"
Fifty ways to leave your lover.

You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free.

Oo slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
You just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free.

She said, "It grieves me now to see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again"
I said, "I appreciate that, and would you please explain about the fifty ways?"
She said, "Why don't we both just sleep on it tonight?
And I believe in the morning you'll begin to see the light"
And then she kissed me, and I realized whe probably was right
There must be, fifty ways to leave your lover
Fifty ways to leave your lover.

You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Oh you hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free.

Slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to coy, Roy
You just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free.
