Lyrics

There’s a cigarette burning
And the ashes are scattered
But it started a fire
That is spreading much faster
There’s a lipstick stain
At the end of the butt
And a motive for revenge
But we don’t know for what
We’re at the edge of our seats
Nobody’s ready to leave
We all enjoy the gossip
And the drama it brings.

She stepped into the scene
Like she was little looking for somebody to blame
He was young dumb and broke
A perfect sucker for the game she would play.
She dropped a couple hints
Looking for a reaction
And he wound up doing time
For being part of the action.

He was played
She was smooth as ice
He didn’t think about the outcome
But he should’ve thought twice
He was played
But before he could run
She pulled a switcharoo
And left him holding the gun.

There’s a story to be told
And a mystery to solve
The jury found him guilty
But it wasn’t his fault.
If memory serves him correct
She had a big part to play
But she charmed them with her tears
And she was well on her way
The judge, he sentenced him quick
The evidence was dismissed
And the papers said the fingerprints
Just weren’t a fit.

The very next day when she saw him alone
She said sorry with a smile
For the thing she had done
She showed a little remorse
For the way it went down
But then she moved in with a girlfriend
From a neighboring town
And then a movie was made
And everybody got paid
And the spotlight made a star of the kid who got played.

He was played
She was smooth as ice
He didn’t think about the outcome
But he should’ve thought twice
He was played
But before he could run
She pulled a switcharoo
And left him holding the gun.

He was played
She was smooth as ice
He didn’t think about the outcome
But he should’ve thought twice
He was played
But before he could run
She pulled a switcharoo
And left him holding the gun.
He was played
She was smooth as ice
He didn’t think about the outcome
But he should’ve thought twice
He was played
But before he could run
She pulled a switcharoo
And left him holding the gun.

One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever!!”
