The Ronettes — (The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up lyrics

Baby, when we break up
From a quarrel or a fight
I can't wait to have you back
And hold you, oh, so tight

Tell me why (tell me why) I wanna know (I wanna know)
Tell me why (tell me why) is it so (is it so) oh-oh

That the best part of breaking up is when you're making up (tell me why)
Best part of breaking up is when you're making up (is it so)
But, after breaking up, be sure you're making up with me

Every time you leave
I get those teardrops in my eyes
But, they seem to go away
When you apologize

Tell me why (tell me why) I wanna know (I wanna know)
Tell me why (tell me why) is it so (is it so) oh-oh

That the best part of breaking up is when you're making up (tell me why)
Best part of breaking up is when you're making up (is it so)
But, after breaking up, be sure you're making up with me

C’mon, baby, c’mon baby
Don't say maybe
Well, it makes no difference who was wrong
Just as long as I'll be with you

Baby, I'll be lonely till you're back where you should be (back, back, back)
But, baby, I belong to you and you belong to me (back, back, back)

Tell me why (tell me why) I wanna know (I wanna know)
Tell me why (tell me why) is it so (is it so) oh-oh

That the best part of breaking up is when you're making up (tell me why)
Best part of breaking up is when you're making up (is it so)
But, after breaking up, be sure you're making up with

The best part of breaking up is when you know that you're making up with me!

C’mon, baby, c’mon baby
Don't say maybe
C’mon, baby, c’mon baby
