Lyrics:

Oh you’re doing my head in
Isn’t it time we called it a day
Cause every time I hear your voice now
Just makes me want to turn away

Oh you’re doing my head in
Isn’t it time we called it day
Cause every time I hear your voice now
Makes me want to turn away

Oh you’re doing my head in
Can’t we just get along?
Oh you’re doing my head in
Isn’t it time we said goodbye

Ooh
