USED TO in songs...

The other day in class we listened to an old song performed by the Rolling Stones.

Check the lyrics:

It's all over now _ Video

Well, baby used to stay out all night long She made me cry, she done me wrong She hurt my eyes open, that's no lie Tables turn and now her turn to cry Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Well, she used to run around with every man in town She spent all my money, playing her high class game She put me out, it was a pity how I cried Tables turn and now her turn to cry Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Well, I used to wake the morning, get my breakfast in bed When I'd gotten worried she'd ease my aching head But now she's here and there, with every man in town Still trying to take me for that same old clown Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Because I used to love her, but it's all over now Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
