If the jukebox took teardrops I'd dance all night long
I'd sail away to yesterday on the wings of a song
I'd close my eyes then hold you tight
Till the blue light of dawn
If the jukebox took teardrops I'd cry all night long

My baby's gone, she left today
And I got a feelin' she's gone to stay
She said she needed money so I took out a loan
Now both my little honey and my money are gone
If the jukebox took teardrops it would play a hurtin' song
If the jukebox took teardrops I'd cry all night long

Mister Barkeep, my old friend
Close the door and lock me in
Just let me spend the evening out on the floor
Missin' her and wishin' her back once more

If the jukebox took teardrops I'd dance all night long
I'd sail away to yesterday on the wings of a song
I'd close my eyes then hold you tight
Till the blue light of dawn
If the jukebox took teardrops I'd cry all night long
If the jukebox took teardrops I'd cry all night long
