Song Description

Usually women cry over breakups... according to the song "It's Different for Girls" But there's nothing wrong with being angry about a cheating man. To heck with Stand By Your Man, or Crying over you... Anger is a real feeling and sometimes it's a lot healthier (and fun to sing about) than crying over a broken heart.

Story Behind the Song

This was initially a writing assignment. Write a "sequence song" - 1 2 3 4, A B C D. And this is what fell out of my brain. I think I channeled Miranda Lambert as I wrote it.

Lyrics

Declaration (The Angry Ex-Girlfriend Song)
Lyrics and Music by Carolyn Messina © 2017

One Two Look at you. Tryin' to figure out what to do
Three Four Out the door. You ain't gonna cheat on me anymore
Five Six Watch the bricks Better move before they hit your
Seven Eight Nine Ten Mercedes Benz Here's a warning to all men

Oh we've been dating for three years. An engagement ring never did appear
Then I caught you with my friend. No excuse, this is the end

But who says a grown girl's gotta cry when a boy breaks your heart with a mess of lies
He's the one who should be weepin'. So turn around and watch me leavin
Cause it's a 1234 declaration of war I ain't gonna take it any more.

Cause there ain't no man worth crying. All you boys better head for cover
Cause a women's wrath is a fiery beast with a right hook, sucker punch you're gonna see
It's a 1234 declaration of war I ain't gonna take it anymore

Well Facebook Twitter and cyberspace. Everywhere I see his face
It used to be so friggin easy to rip the photos into pieces

But digital is keeping me as busy as a killer bee
I gotta un-friend, un-tag, block his stupid cell. Take a break, get a grip, grow a thicker shell
1234 declaration of war I ain't gonna take it any more.

Cause there ain't no man worth crying. All you boys better head for cover
Cause a women's wrath is a fiery beast with a right hook, sucker punch you're gonna see
It's a 1234 declaration of war I ain't gonna take it anymore

Here's my warning to avoid the storming of a hell bent girl out for revenge.
Stop that sweet talking, lying cheating, keep on walking
Just Stay off my list of future ex-boyfriends

Yeah there ain't no man worth crying. All you boys better head for cover
Cause a women's wrath is a fiery beast with a right hook, sucker punch you're gonna see
It's a 1234 declaration of war I ain't gonna take it anymore
It's a 1234 declaration of war I ain't gonna take it anymore
