Oh, why did you give me your love dear
When it lasted only a day
Why did you teach me to love you
Only to turn me away.

You promised that you would be true
Your promise was all in vain
But my heart keeps calling for you dear
Like the flowers call for the rain.

--- Instrumental ---

You may be sorry some day dear
That you have broken my heart
That you have passed me away dear
And fooled me from the start.

Now this is my last appeal dear
I've only a word to say
Oh, why did you give me your love dear
When it lasted only a day...
