Lyrics:
(Umm, hmm, hmm)
(Umm, hmm, hmm)

I heard the word goin' 'round town
They say you're makin' a fool outta me
Baby, it took me some time to come 'round
To realize you were not what you seem

Each day passin' the clock is my friend
Helps me get back on my feet again

(Like a button off-a my shirt)
(Just an everyday distraction)
You'd be overreacting
If you think that I feel hurt

(Just a button off-a my shirt)
(And someday I will replace you)
I don't care what I have lost
You got what you deserved

I was down, down, down
Down, down, down, down

I'm not the first, I won't be the last
To make the mistake of believein' in you
I don't intend to live in the past
Just like they say
Some you win, some you lose

You never loved me
And you made it plain
Now it's my turn
And I'm playin' your game

Like a button off-a my shirt
Just an everyday distraction
You'd be over-reacting
If you think that I still hurt

Just a button off-a my shirt
And someday I will replace you
I don't care what I have lost
You've got what you deserve

(Love and affection)
You started
(Changin' direction)
You threw it away

(Down, down, down) yeah
Down, down, down

{Instrumental} Um-hmm

You never loved me
And you made it plain
A-now it's my turn
To make you understand

(Like a button off-a my shirt)
(Just an everyday distraction)
You'd be over-reacting
If you think that I feel hurt

(Just a button off-a my shirt)
(And someday I will replace you)
I don't care what I have lost
You've got what you deserve

(Like a button off-a my shirt) (ooooh-nooooo)
(Just an everyday distraction)
You'd be over-reacting
If you think that I feel hurt

(Just a button off-a my shirt) (ooooh-yeah)
(And someday I will replace you)
And I don't care what I have lost
You've got what you deserve

FADES-
(Like a button off-a my shirt) (yeah)
(Just an everyday distraction)
You'd be over-reacting If you think that I feel hurt (Just a button off-a my shirt) (yeah, yeah) (And someday I will replace you) I don't care what I have lost You got what... Awcantor@aol.com
