Chorus

If it happens again I'm leaving
I'll pack my things and go
If it happens again
There'll be no looking back
I won't say I told you so

You did what you were told
And you took the strain
Been left out in the cold
Got yourself to blame
But believe me,
If it happens again I'm leaving
If it stays the same I'm gone
When you're stabbed in the back
And there's salt in the wound
The it's time to move along

Chorus

If it happens ..... Etc

No more spanners in the works,
All the works been done
Had your face rubbed in the dirt
On show for every one
But believe me
If it happens again I'm leaving
If it stays the same I'm gone
When compromise is the song you sing
It's been going on to long

Chorus

If it happens ..... Etc
