Q. In Paul Simon’s hit song of 1976 how many ways did he sing to leave your lover?

A. 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover. Paul Simon may have sung that there were 50 ways to leave your lover, but he only listed five, which are:

1) Slip out the back, Jack
2) Make a new plan, Stan
3) You don’t need to be coy, Roy, just set yourself free
4) Hop on the bus, Gus
5) Drop of the key, Lee, and get yourself free

According to Simon’s younger brother Eddie, Paul made this song up while teaching his son how to rhyme. Even though he didn’t take the lyrics too seriously, it’s an interesting song, particularly for those who feel trapped in bad relationships.
