lyrics

The girl's a fool
She broke the rule
She hurt him hard
This time you will break down
She's lost his trust
And so she must
All is lost
The system has broke down

Romance has broke down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down

She plays it hard
She plays it tough
But that's enough
The love is over
She's broke his heart and that is rough
But in the end you'll soon recover

The romance is over
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down

I've been spending my money
In the old town
It's not the same honey
When you're not around
I've been spending my time
In the old town
I sure miss you honey
Now you're not around
Now you're not around
This old town

This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
