Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee

At home I find myself, lost and all alone
My man is playing the field, the thrill is gone
He stays out all night, says he's with the boys
But lipstick on his collar, perfume on it too
Tells me he's been lying, tell you what I'm gonna do

Chorus:
I'm gonna put it in the want ads
I need a love that's true
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads
Please somebody rescue me

I spend my nights alone, crying bitter tears
Although I cry out loud, nobody really hears
And when I need him most, he's never by my side
He's either playing cards, or drinking at the bars
He thinks that I'm a fool, I'm going to the evening news

Repeat Chorus

Extra extra, read all about it, (4x)

Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee

Want ads
Gonna put it in the want ads
Extra Extra
Read all about it
I'm gonna put it in the want ads
