The Breakup Song (They Don't Write Em')

Greg Kihn Band


We had broken up for good just an hour before
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing 'cross thefloor
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
And then the band slowed the tempo, and the music gets youdown
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
It was the same old song, with a melancholy sound
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

They don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't write 'em like that anymore

We'd been living together for a million years
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
But now it feels so strange out of the atmospheres
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing so slow
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

They don't write 'em like that anymore
They don't write 'em like that anymore

Mmmm, now?
I wind up staring at an empty glass
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
'Cause it's so easy to say that you'll forget your past
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

They don't write 'em like that anymore
No, they just don't write 'em like that anymore
Oh, they don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't, no they don't, no no, uh-uh
They just don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't
