lyrics

I'm sitting watching out the window,
Wondering what exactly I know
When you act strange for no reason
And turtlenecks are out of season...
Then I see you coming from a block away
Wiping the lipstick off your face
Please don't kiss me when you cough
You didn't quite get it all off, so

Thank you for telling me the truth
But it's not what I expected, baby Ruth

When I pulled back from our embrace
I could see it written on your face
I knew then you had the upper hand
And your little slip-up suddenly seemed sorta planned
I said, babe it looks like you missed a spot,
You said, "I thought I'd feel guilty but I just feel hot
I waited years for this, it just happened one day"
I said, I know better than to stand in your way, so

Thank you for telling me the truth
But it's not what I expected, baby Ruth

I'm sitting watching out the windshield
Low on gas, so I've got my eyes peeled
For any sign on the horizon now
Any hint of an in or an out,
While you're at home doing god knows what
With god knows who and all I've got
Is this ring on a chain, with our initials inscribed
Swingin' from the rearview, cause now the score is tied, so

Thank you for telling me the truth
But it's not what I expected, baby Ruth
Thank you for telling me the truth
But it's not what I expected, baby Ruth
