IT´S ALL OVER NOW (The Rolling Stones)
Well, baby used to ________ out all night long

She hurt my eyes open, that's no lie
Tables turn and now her turn to ________

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Well, I used to ________ in the morning, get my breakfast in bed
When I'd gotten worried she'd ease my aching __________
But now she's here and _________, with every man in town
Still trying to take me for that _________ old clown

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Well, she used to ________ around with every man in town
She ________ all my money, playing her high class game
She put me out, it was a pity how I cried
Tables turn and now her turn to cry

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
