Lyrics

Leave the Girls Alone (Laisse Tomber les Filles)

English Lyrics by C. Scott Davis

Music and Original French Lyrics by Serge Gainsbourg

Hey, leave the girls alone
Hey, leave the girls alone
They're gonna leave you high and dry
Hey, leave the girls alone
Hey, leave the girls alone
You'll be the one who's gonna cry

Even though you made me cry before
I'm not gonna cry tonight
I'm not gonna cry tonight
And when they're showing you the door
I would say it serves you right
I would say it serves you right

Hey, leave the girls alone
Hey, leave the girls alone
This time the joke will be on you
Hey, leave the girls alone
Hey, leave the girls alone
You're gonna have to pay your due

Playing around is not a deal
when you're breaking someone's heart
when you're breaking someone's heart
You're gonna find out how it feels
when your love is torn apart
when your love is torn apart

Fate is never kind to
those who don't consider
any of the hearts they break
Karma's gonna find you
all alone and bitter
You will pay for your mistakes!

Hey, leave the girls alone
Hey, leave the girls alone
They're gonna leave you high and dry
Hey, leave the girls alone
Hey, leave the girls alone
You'll be the one who's gonna cry

Soon you'll be whining, when they go
There'll be no one else but you
There'll be no one else but you
Then you'll remember and you'll know
everything I said is true
everything I said is true

Then you'll remember and you'll know
everything I said is true
everything I said is true
Then you'll remember and you'll know
everything I said is true
everything I said is true
Then you'll remember and you'll know
everything I said is true
everything I said is true
