I Hate to be the One to Tell you this, but…

I Hate to be the One to Tell you this, but…

I didn’t wanna’ tell ya’
But your puppy just died
I heard it from Lester
Who cried and cried

I didn’t wanna’ tell ya’
But your house is on fire
I heard it from Terrence
You know he’s not a liar

I didn’t wanna’ tell ya’
But you stepped in poop
I heard it from Doris
Now you’re in the loop

I didn’t wanna’ tell ya’
But your car got jacked
I heard it from Albert
I doubt you’ll get it back

I didn’t wanna’ tell ya’
But your cat ran away
I heard it from Becky
Are you having a bad day?

I hate to spread so much bad news
But someone’s gotta’ say it
And certainly a friend would be
The one who should relay it
