Dion – Runaround Sue lyrics

Here's my story it's sad but true
It's about a girl that I once knew
She took my love then ran around
With every single guy in town.

Hayp hayp
Bumda hady hady, hayp hayp
Bumda hady hady, hayp hayp
Bumda hady hady hayp.


Ah, I should have known it from the very start,
This girl will leave me with a broken heart.
Now listen people what I'm telling you
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue.

I miss her lips and the smile on her face,
The touch of her hair and this girl's warm embrace.
So if you don't wanna cry like I do
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue.


Ah, she likes to travel around,
She'll love you but she'll put you down.
Now people let me put you wise,
Sue goes out with other guys.

Here's the moral and the story from the guy who knows,
I fell in love and my love still grows.
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll say
Keep away from-a Runaround Sue.


(Repeat last two verses and Chorus)
