Lyrics:

Don't listen to Linda
She said all those things before
She's just a pretender,
And though you couldn’t love her more
She'll lead you on, and then one day
She'll say you’ll have to part
Don't listen to Linda
She'll only break your heart.

Don't listen to Linda
If you want some good advice,
Just try to remember,
She did it once, she’ll do it twice
There’s more to her little games,
han your eyes can see,
Don't listen to Linda,
Or you'll end up like me.

You'll never understand her
All the presents you could hand her,
Could never be enough, oh no,
So, don't underestimate her,
'cause sooner or later,
The goings gonna start to get rough.

Don't listen to Linda,
Don't believe the things you hear.
You'll end up, contender,
For the "Loser Of The Year".
I've said everything I can
To try and make you see
Don't listen to Linda,
Or you'll end up like me.

You'll never understand her
All the presents you could hand her,
Could never be enough, oh no,
So, don't underestimate her,
'cause sooner or later,
The goings gonna start to get rough.

Don't listen to Linda
She said all those things before
She's just a pretender,
And though you couldn't love her more
She'll lead you on, and then one day
She'll say you’ll have to part
Don't listen to Linda
She'll only break your heart.
