I saw him at the corner store
He gave me candy, I came back for more
I asked for his name, he said call me Jakey James
He was 6'2 lots of style, he had the recipe to make you smile
But he got too popular with the girls so I erased him from my world

The next boy was cute and shy
But he never really looked me in the eye
Secretive I was intrigued
He was sweet, his name was Pete
(Sweet Pete)
First time that he took me out, I didn't know what to talk about
So I took the initiative and told Pete he had to leave

So I'm back to square one with Mr Good For Nothing John
Ever since he brought me down, I can't get off the ground
It's not like I don't try, and I'm pretty easy on the eye
But the one I really crave, is the one that got away
With each boy he gets worse, but I'm still stuck on the first
Really hate to say, I want the one that got away

He's on the soccer football team, can be found in every girl's dream
We've been talking for a while, you could say that he's on trial
But whenever we're alone, his jaw's like a gramophone
When he goes off the field, with him goes his appeal

So I'm back to square one with Mr Good For Nothing John
Ever since he brought me down, I can't get off the ground
It's not like I don't try, and I'm pretty easy on the eye
But the one I really crave, is the one that got away
With each boy he gets worse, but I'm still stuck on the first
Really hate to say, I want the one that got away

Here she goes again, with another boy on her hands
Word goes around real fast in this small town
All these rumors like I'm a stark, Just wanna find someone to give my heart
No luck with James, Pete or the football stud
None of them can compare
None of them can compare
To my John

It's not like I don't try, and I'm pretty easy on the eye
But the one I really crave, is the one that got away
With each boy he gets worse, but I'm still stuck on the first
Really hate to say, I want the one that got away
I want the one that got away
