Let me warn you from the start so you can choose to stay or go
My commitment may be brief but my kisses are real slow
There’ll be no vows to break, no rings to size or wear
No future plans or fights, just a woman who cares

My love comes with an expiration tag
For three months I’ll be the best girlfriend you ever had
I’ll kiss your lips so gently and always treat you right
And when three months are up, I’ll disappear into the night

Some women will say anything to get whatever they seek
You’ll believe all their lies ‘til their stories spring a leak
It’s not that you’re unworthy of a love that lasts for long
But better short and sweet than promises gone wrong

My love comes with an expiration tag
For three months I’ll be the best girlfriend you ever had
I’ll whisper sweet nothings and always treat you right
And when three months are up, I’ll disappear into the night

You can’t say I’m not honest, forthright and sincere
Would you rather I tell you only things you want to hear?

So when the season changes and you’re lying in your bed
Just remember that old saying buried somewhere in your head
Better to have loved and lost than never loved at all
And don’t wait up for the phone to ring ‘cause I ain’t gonna call

My love comes with an expiration tag
For three months I’ll be the best girlfriend you ever had
I’ll kiss your lips so gently and always treat you right
And when three months are up, I’ll disappear into the night
I’ll whisper sweet nothings and always treat you right
And when three months are up, I’ll disappear into the night
Disappear into the night…into the night…into the night
