Woke up this mornin' with an achin' head,
Runnin' through my mind all the things you had said.
The pain and misery left me wishing I was dead.
I coulda kept kept sinkin' but then instead,
I got down on my knees, I began to pray.
Counted my blessings and the time you went away, and I said:
"Thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin' me."

The time we spent together is etched into my heart.
When you first held me close you swore we'd never ever part.
The piece of me still stuck on you, that needs to die.
Got nothin' left to say, won't sit around and cry.
What's done is done and I'm grateful every day.
If we ever meet again this is what I'm gonna say, I'll say:
"Thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin' me."

You can't lose nothin' don't belong to you.
So before we started we were through.
The loneliest place I ever been was next to you in bed.
I'm doin' fine now by myself, that's why I said:
"Thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin' me."

Woke up this mornin' with an achin' head,
Runnin' through my mind all the things you had said.
The pain and misery had me wishing I was dead.
I coulda kept kept sinkin' but then instead,
I got down on my knees, I began to pray.
Counted my blessings and the time you went away, and I said:
"Thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin', thank you for leavin' me."

Thank you for leavin' me darling. Oh, it was hard at the start, but, uh, hmm. 
Now I think I see the light. I'm doin' just fine. I sold your sharkskin suit on eBay
For a LOT of money. Took your books down to the bookstore and sold them.
Recycled what I could. New sheets, new mattress, new pillow where you laid your head.
I'm the happiest girl in the whole U. S. A.!
