Skeeter Davis — Little Music Box lyrics

Take back the gifts you gave to me
All the pretty things you gave so free
Take back the promise, take back the ring
Without your love they don't mean a thing.

One think I ask before you go
How could you give and be so cold
Take every gift but leave just one
The little music box that plays our song.

Now the little music box plays our song
As I listen I keep wondering what went wrong
All I have is mem'ries of your love that's strong
And the little music box that plays our song.

--- Instrumental ---

The pretty little tune it plays so sweet
Brightens up my heart with memories
And though it hurts me I will just pretend
When the music plays that we're in love again.

Don't say you're sorry, say goodbye
The longer you stay even the more I cry
Take every gift but leave just one
The little music box that plays our song.

Now the little music box plays our song
As I listen I keep wondering what went wrong
All I have is mem'ries of your love that's strong
And the little music box that plays our song.

Just the little music box that plays our song...
