Just for a thrill,
Hmm, you turn the sunshine into rain,
Hmm, baby, for a thrill,
You gave my heart nothin' but pain,
Hmmm, to me, you were a pride and a joy,
But to you, I was only a toy,
A plaything, just to toss around at will.

Hmmm, just for a thrill,
You know that you did me wrong,
Just for a thrill,
You made my life just one sad song,
But now you're free,
And you're havin' your fun,
But to me, you're still the only one,
Just for a thrill, hmmm,
You made my heart stand still.
