I could hear the sound of laughter, right next door
Sarcastic words exchanged at my expense
Some ladies of my life in a fateful meeting
And I knew that it was time for their revenge
The joke's on me
Yes, the joke's on me....

He told me about his many lustful nights
He said, "Baby, you're the first, not to turn me on!"
But comparing notes reveals a very different tale
My friends and I have the facts, to prove him wrong
He lied to me
Yes, he lied to me
To you and me
Yes, to you and me

Oh, they were right next door
And I'm now 'the great pretender'
They're no longer notched encounters on my guitar
They're making fun of me and my libido
Now, perhaps I'll learn that lies won't get me far

When he told me the blame was mine, I felt so low
Id put it down to my lack of sex appeal
But, Casanova's rise to fame is based on lies
The girl's are back in town, and all's revealed
He lied to me
Yes, he lied to me
To you and me
Bad boy!

Oh, he was right next door
And he's now 'the great pretender'
No longer notched encounters on his guitar
We're making fun of him and his libido
Now, perhaps he'll learn that lies won't get him far

Oh, they were right next door
And I'm now 'the great pretender', yeah!
No longer notched encounters on my guitar
They're making fun of me and my libido
Now, perhaps I'll learn that lies won't get me far
