COUNTDOWN TO CHANGE

ONE Saturday night, I waited. You never showed.
I saw you later, laughing with Linda Rose. (or Billy Joe)
TWO days you fooled me; called me your own.
Next day you forgot how to pick up the phone.
THREE weeks of wondering where you had gone.
Sweating it out, sad and alone.
FOUR day weekend. You "worked overtime".
I saw you with her (him) in the theater line.

Chorus
Now - this is my countdown to change !
I'm counting to TEN, and this game will end.
You'll see I've got reasons to show.
Baby. you're strange ! You're just playing games.
What's next ? I never would know.
So - Baby - I gotta go.
This is my countdown to change !

FIVE little postcards from you at the beach.
A few little words that just didn't reach.
SIX days you really showed me around.
I learned that she (he) had been out of town.
SEVEN weeks you showed me you couldn't be true.
I've got no reason to be counting on you.
EIGHT o'clock tonight you'll be getting a call.
One simple message - "Baby - that's all !"

Chorus
Forget number NINE ! I don't have the time !
This is my countdown to change.
Here's number TEN : this is the end !
You see I've got reasons to show.
What's next ? I never would know.
You're just playing games. My life's rearranged.
This is my countdown to change !
