    Three important rules for breaking up
    Don’t put off breaking up when you know you want to
    Prolonging the situation only makes it worse
    Tell him honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly
    Don’t make a big production
    Don’t make up an elaborate story
    This will help you avoid a big tear-jerking scene
    If you want to date other people say so
    Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected
    Even if you’ve gone together for only a short time,
    And haven’t been too serious
    There’s still a feeling of rejection when someone says
    She preferres the company of others to your exclusive company
    But if you’re honest, and direct
    And avoid making a flowery emotional speech when you break the news
    The boy will respect you for your frankness
    And honestly he’ll apeciate the kind of straightfoward manner in which you told him your decision
    Unless he’s a real jerk or a crybaby you will remain friendsI’m head of the class
    I’m popular
    I’m a quarterback
    I’m popular

    My mom says I’m a catch
    I’m popular
    I’m never last picked
    I got a cheerleading chick

    Being attractive is the most important thing there is
    If you want to catch the biggest fish in your pond
    You have to be as attractive as possible
    Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean

    Wash it at least every two weeks
    Once every two weeks
    And if you see Jonny football hero in the hall
    Tell him he played a great game
    Tell him you liked his article in the newspaper

    I’m the party star
    I’m popular
    I got my own car
    I’m popular

    I’ll never get caught
    I’m popular
    I make football bets
    I’m a teacher’s pet

    I propose we support a one-month limit on going steady
    I think it will keep people more able to deal with weird situations
    And get to know more people
    I think if you’re ready to go out with Johnny
    Now’s the time to tell him about your one-month limit
    He won’t mind, he’ll apreciate your fresh look on dating
    And once you’ve dated someone else you can date him again
    I’m sure he’ll like did
    Everyone will appreciate it
    You’re so novel, what a good idea
    You can keep you time to yourself
    You don’t need date insurance
    You can go out with whoever you want to
    Every boy, every boy, in the whole world could be yours
    If you’ll just listen to my plan
