no wonder she left you

She's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
better learn how to face it
She's Gone Oh I, Oh I'd
pay the devil to replace her
She's Gone - what went wrong

I'm guessing you recognize those lyrics as the chorus from the '80s Daryl Hall & John Oates hit, "She's Gone," presumably about a love lost.

I'd like to offer that the answer to the question in the last line of the chorus, "What went wrong?" may be found in the second to the last line.

Perhaps she didn't want to stick around with a guy who's so quick to want a replacement.

Funny! I heard that song a bunch - and never understood that line myself.

Then again, Hall and Oates were kinda wimpy.

I, too, have always thought that line didn't make any sense.

Ladies, I assume what he MEANT was, "I'd pay the devil to have her back," but that doesn't fit in very well.

I've never been a huge fan of countryesque music, but I like Hall & Oates, sorta. All their songs tell a story.

Hmmmm. Never underestimate the ability of a woman to just come out of left field with something.

James, yeah, a story about a dude who knows how to woo a woman.

Matt, left field, center field, right field ...
