EX-GIRLFRIEND
(G. Stefani, T. Dumont, T. Kanal)
from the album Return of Saturn


The first single from the new album, Return of Saturn. This song was  performed live on January 1st 2000 in the first few minutes of the new millennium. The first time it was played live was on No Doubt's club tour in 1999. It is the last song that No Doubt wrote when they went back into the studios, because they weren't completely satified with the new album.


I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
And you know it makes me sick to be on that list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed

You say youre gonna burn before you mellow
I will be the one to burn you
Whyd you have to go and pick me?
When you that we were different, completely

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend

Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed

Your wildness scares me
So does your freedom
You say you cant stand the restrictions
I find myself trying to change you
If you were meant to be my lover I wouldnt have to

And I feel so mean, I feel in between
Cause Im about to give you away

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
(for someone else to take)
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
(am I making a mistake?)
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
(all the time that we spent)
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girl, friend

Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed
Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed

Im about to give you away for someone else to take
Im about to give you away for someone else to take

We keep repeating mistakes for souvenirs
And weve been in between the days for years
And I know that when I see you Im going to die
I know Im going to want you and you know why
Its going to kill me to see you with the next girl
Cause Im the most gorgeously jealous kind of ex-girl

But I should have thought of that before we kissed

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend

Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed
Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed
