FIFTY WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER Lyrics - Simon and Garfunkel



Review The Song (2)


The problem is all inside your head, she said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover

She said it's really not my habit to intrude
Furthermore I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
So I repeat myself, at the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover, fifty ways to leave your lover

Chorus:
Just slip out the back, Jack, make a new plan, Stan
Don't need to be coy, Roy, just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus, don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee, and get yourself free
(repeats 2x)

She said it grieves me so to see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again
I said, I appreciate that, then would you please explain about the fifty ways

She said, why don't we both just sleep on it tonight
And I believe, in the morning you'll begin to see the light
And then she kissed me and I realized she probably was right
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover, fifty ways to leave your lover

chorus

Maybe it's time to write a version for women as to ways to leave her lover. It's only the chorus that needs to be changed.
Just slip out the rear , dear
Make a new plan , Ann
No need to be coy, Joy.
Just listen to me.
Just hop on a plane, Jane,
No need to explain, Lane,
Just drop off the key, Lee.
And set yourself free.



...And get yourself free... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/17/07

My mom played this song for us when we were children and i loved the catchy beat but never fully understood the full lyrical meaning. Now that I'm an adult i see that men, in general, have difficulty "exiting" a relationship and this song is perfect proof of that. I think the woman the male singer is getting this advice from may have a little crush on him and may be secretly (selfishly) trying to get him single.
