Payback Is a Dog Lyrics

By mistake I heard
Some news about you
I just turned my head
And closed my ears
It hurts so bad

First I tried to look
I paused a moment
Just to catch my breath
Until I saw how big a fool I was

To love you so
The way [Incomprehensible]
I had no where to go

Remember when I told you
Not long ago
If you wanted somebody new
To make me know

One day you know
Just how it feels

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog It seems like only yesterday
We chased a rainbow
Now our pot of gold
Has turned to worthless, useless simple tune

It was just a dream
And I just woke up
I don't have anything

Now you seem to act so strange
I told you so
Only got yourself to blame
Wanna let you know

One day you'll see
Just how it feels

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Thoughts & Meanings

I think he's saying he has giving this her a chance to be with someone else if she isnt happy with him, but she decides to stay. but someone hears about her cheatin and so he left her to be with someone new and now she's upset about it, so it's like payback.

And what a beautiful song it is too

I met the Stylistics years ago when they were playing in Ilfracombe and I asked them about the meaning of Payback is a Dog. It's nothing like what people think. When they were growing up in Phili, one of their mates Donny had a secret friend called Payback and no one could figure out who it was. Until one day he brought his secret friend to school. Payback was a dog! A little Jack Russell who had quite a nip on him. So when someone pissed Donny off it was Payback time and they'd end up with a bitten ass. And since Payback was so small and quick, he was long gone before the poor victim knew what'd happened. Years later when the Stylistics wrote the song they just left it to people's imagination. They asked me to keep this story a secret and only release it if Britain was in any kind of trouble. They thought it might help to take our minds off reality. We've left the EU and it's a kind of payback too. Kapeesh?
