“Don’t Listen to Linda” (prev. unissued version) Lyrics

Don’t listen to Linda
She’s said all those things before
She’s just a pretender
And though you couldn’t love her more
She’ll lead you on, but then one day
She’ll say you 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
Than 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
Would never be enough, oh no
So don’t underestimate her
’Cause sooner or later
The going’s gonna start to get rough

Don’t listen to Linda
Don’t believe the things you hear
You’re her top 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

[break]

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