First Verse:
They warned me when you kissed me,
Your love would ricochet,
Your lips would find another,
And your heart would go astray.
Second Verse:
I thought that I could hold you,
With all my many charms,
But then one day you ricocheted,
To someone else's arms,  And Baby,
I don't want a ricochet romance!  I don't want a ricochet love!
If you're careless with your kisses,  find another turtle dove!
I don't live on ricochet romance!  No!  No!  Not me!
If you're gonna ricochet Baby,  I'm gonna set you free!
(repeat chorus)
If you're gonna ricochet Baby,  I'm gonna set you free!
