(Instrumental intro)


It's hard to believe we are through, dear
Still you keep a-sayin' it ain't so
Baby, because I need you
Much more than you know

I'm sorry to see you go and leave me
It hurts me to know we must part
It's only because I love you
And you're so close to my heart

But if you go away, I'm sorry to say
But I guess it's okay
There may come a day
You might or you may
Become the same old way

Oh, I try to be gay to forgive you
Same as I was at the start
I'll play the part of a hero
But gee, what a blow to my heart

'Yas, yas'

(instrumental)

If you go away, I'm sorry to say
But I guess it's okay
There may come a day
You might or you may
Become the same old way

Oh, I try to be gay to forgive you
Same as I was at the start
I'll play the part of a hero
But gee, what a blow to my heart

Ooh-oh
Gee, what a blow to my heart.
