If youíre gonna break my heart, baby, break it.

Iím man enough to take it somehow.

If youíre gonna have to leave, then leave me, baby.

All Iím asking you is: tell me now!
Tell me now!

            

Sheís the ritzy-glitzy-type prom queen
from the ďChic-y-MickeyĒ High.

Wherever she walks, heads are turniní

And Iím just a regular guy.

Hard to believe I even caught her attention

But now weíre an item, I canít take the tension.

           

If youíre gonna break my heart, baby, break it.

Iím man enough to take it somehow.

If youíre gonna have to leave, then leave me, baby.

All Iím asking you is: tell me now!
Tell me now!

           

Nothing worse than loving that someone,

Who feels that loving you may be wrong.
It hurts to learn that youíre just the ďright oneĒ

Tilí someone better comes along.

Better an ending with heartache and pain,

Than a pain without end, letís not pretend.

   

If youíre gonna break my heart, baby, break it.

Iím man enough to take it somehow.

If youíre gonna have to leave, then leave me, baby.

All Iím asking you is: tell me now!
Tell me now!

Please tell me now!

Come on, baby, tell me now!

Tell me now, tell me now!
