I just heard the news
You finally got together
You are such a perfect match
You've both caught the perfect catch
Wish you happiness forever

Now the rumours are confirmed
I can't wait to take a picture
Of you kissing in the corner
At a party in the summer
Now that you're a fixture

And we are so happy for you
We are so happy for you
We are so happy for you
We are so happy for you

I just heard the news
You're no longer together
Oh, accept my sympathy
Guess it wasn't meant to be
Guess it couldn't last for ever

But I know you're strong
You'll soon be back and thriving
To be perfectly honest
I didn't think it had promise
I couldn't see your love surviving

And the same applies to us
Your breakup was strongly mooted
It was hard to comprehend
That you two were even friends
We didn't think you were well suited

And we knew he wasn't for you
We knew he wasn't for you
We knew he wasn't for you (oh what a moron)
We knew he wasn't for you

Let me commiserate
But your ex had some annoying traits
Let me corroborate
All the things you found to hate
I thought from your first date
What a clueless reprobate
Your new love, just you wait
Will be your love so great

I just heard the news
You got back together
Oh we always knew you would
You were on to something good
Wish you happiness for ever
