Take a Bow – Lyrics

 

How bout a round of applause?
Standin’ ovation
Oh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
You look so dumb right now
Standin’ outside my house
Tryin’ to apologize
You’re so ugly when you cry
(Please)
Just cut it out
Don’t tell me you’re sorry cause you’re not
Baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught
But you put on quite a show
You really had me goin’
But now it’s time to go
Curtains finally closin’
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now
Go on and take a bow
Grab your clothes and get gone
(You better hurry up)
Before the sprinklers come on
Talkin’ bout “Girl, I love you you’re the one”
This just looks like a re-run
(Please)
What else is on?
And don’t tell me you’re sorry cause you’re not
Baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught
But you put on quite a show
You really had me goin’
But now it’s time to go
Curtains finally closin’
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now
Go on and take a bow
And the award for the best liar goes to you
For makin’ me believe
That you could be
Faithful to me
Let’s hear your speech out
Oh
How bout a round of applause?
Standin’ ovation
But you put on quite a show
You really had me goin’
But now it’s time to go
Curtains finally closin’
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now
Go on and take a bow
But it’s over now
