Burl Ives — A Little Bitty Tear lyrics

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up, not to make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

You said, you were leavin’ tomorrow
That today was our last day
I said, there'd be no sorrow
That I'd laugh when you walked away

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up, not to make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

I said I'd laugh when you left me
Pull a funny as you went out the door
That I'd have another one waitin’
And I'd wave goodbye as you go

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up, not to make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

Everything went like I planned it
And I really put on quite a show
In my heart I felt I could stand it
Till you walked with your grip through the door

Then
A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up, not make a frown
But, oh, a little bitty tear let me down

A little bitty tear let me down
(A little bitty tear let me down)
