You think you’re so smart
Yes, you think you know it all
But the game you’re trying to play (trying to play)
Can be played another way (another way)
And you see that
You never-never had it so good till you met me

I brought you to the city
Now you tell me there’s no room for pity
My friends tried to tell me so (tell me so)
I told them they didn’t know (they didn’t know)
That lights have gone to your head
You never-never had it so good
Till you met, until you met me
Oh, until you met me
Never had it so good
No, you never, you never, you never had it so good (never had it so good)
Till you met me, my darling (never had it so good, yeah, yeah)
Whoah, without me (never had it so good)
