    &feature=related These are the lyrics>>>>>Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in leavin'

    Somebody's gonna give you what you've been givin'

    And I hope that I'm around to watch 'em knock you down

    It's like you to love 'em and leave 'em

    Just like you loved me and left me

    It's like you to do that sort of thing

    Over and over again

    You're a fool-hearted man.

    I hear you been askin' about me from some of my friends

    But you better believe I'm not going through that again

    You're the kind of man a woman thinks she can change

    But the only thing changin' is my way of thinkin'

    And I'm thinkin' that baby, someday;

    Somebody's gonna give' you a lesson in losin'

    Somebody's gonna do to you what you've been doin'

    And I hope that I'm around to watch 'em knock you down

    Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in hurtin'

    Somebody's gonna leave you with your fire burnin'

    With no way to put it out

    There ain't no doubt

    You're a fool-hearted man.

    Somebody's gonna give you back what you've been givln'

    It was Dottie West who sang it first. She released it in February 1980, im guessing when you were going through your divorce. Jo Dee Messina then recorded it to put on her album, I'm Alright, which came out in 1998.
