Just Like That! - Abba

(B Andersson / B Ulvaeus)


Until that day
My life had been a river
Following a safe predestinated course
Suddenly detouring so unexpectedly
With uncompromising force
My strongholds broke down all too easily
I remember well how he did embarass me
I hung on to his every smile
Marvelled at his style

Just Like That!
He walked into my house as smug as a cat
He was handsome and smart
Walked away with my heart
Just Like That!
He found a temporary home in my flat
Telling innocent lies
Throwing dust in my eyes
But I led him on
Knowing that someday soon he'd be gone
Just Like That!
As though he'd only stopped a while for a chat
But my secrets he learned
Leaving no stone unturned

And once again
The river's flowing slowly
Following its safe and uneventful course
Now the tears have dried
It's become a pleasant break
I recall without remourse
But now and then I wonder where he is
And I will admit
He had something that I miss
I guess he was a rolling stone
The only one I've known

Just Like That!
He walked into my house as smug as a cat
He was handsome and smart
Walked away with my heart
Just Like That!
He found a temporary home in my flat
Telling innocent lies
Throwing dust in my eyes
But I led him on
Knowing that someday soon he'd be gone
Just Like That!
As though he'd only stopped a while for a chat
But my secrets he learned
Leaving no stone unturned

Just Like That!
He walked into my house as smug as a cat
He was handsome and smart
Walked away with my heart
Just Like That!
As though he'd only stopped a while for a chat
But my secrets he learned
Leaving no stone unturned
Just Like That!
