I hate myself for falling in love with you - yeah!
'Cause you wrecked my life
And you broke my heart in two - yeah!

You told me that you loved me
An I believed in you
But how could you love me
When you treat me the way you do?

I love you dear, and I miss you
Honest I do, oh yes
But I hate myself for fallin' in love with you

'Get 'em outta here, ah! '

(instrumental - kazoo & clarinet)

Yes, I hate myself for falling in love with you - yeah!
Because you wrecked my life
And you broke my heart in two - yeah!

Now, you told me that you loved me
An I believed in you
But how could you love me
And treat me the way you do?

I love you and I miss you
Honest I do-ooo, oh yeah
But I hate myself for fallin' in love with you

'Get out'

(instrumental)

I love you, dear and I miss you
Honest I do-ooo, yes
But I hate myself for falling, falling
Falling in love wit' you darlin'.
