I want to know
Know, know, know
(How can I forget)
I've got to know, know
Know, know, know
(How can I forget)
How could I forget
(Forget her)

When I was lonely
She chased away
The little girl chased away
All of my blues

When I was down and out
She went somewhere and bought me
She bought me a brand new
Pair of shoes

So tell me, tell me, tell me
(How can I forget)
How, how, how, how (how can I forget)
How could I forget (forget her)

Yesterday she left for somebody new
My friends all say forget her
Go out and do the same thing too

But how, when her kisses
Still lingers on my lips
And my cheeks ask for
Her fingertips

Since she's been gone
I can't sleep at night
And since she's been gone
I can't eat a bite

Oh, so tell me, tell me
Tell me (how can I forget)
How, how, how, how, how
(How can I forget)

How could I forget
(How can I forget)
I wanna know how could I forget
(How can I forget)

And I've got to know
I've got to know
How can I forget
(How can I forget)

Won't somebody
Help me forget my baby
(How can I forget)
Mmm, how can I forget
Forget, forget
(How can I forget)...
