By Lloyd Price


"AH, REMEMBER THIS?
WHY, I MUST HAVE BEEN THIRTEEN WHEN THIS CAME OUT!
OR WAS IT FOURTEEN?
OR WAS IT TWENTY-TWO?
I COULD HAVE BEEN TWELVE ACTUALLY."

JUST BECAUSE YOU LEFT AND SAID GOODBYE,
DO YOU THINK THAT I WILL SIT AND CRY?
EVEN IF MY HEART SHOULD TELL ME SO,
DARLING, I WOULD RATHER LET YOU GO.

JUST BECAUSE I WANT SOMEONE WHO'S KIND,
WITH A HEART AS GOOD AND PURE AS MINE.
BUT MAYBE I AM ASKING FOR TOO MUCH,
DARLING, PLEASE DON'T EVER BREAK MY HEART.

I KNOW YOU THINK YOU'RE SMART,
JUST RUNNIN' AROUND BREAKING LOVERS HEARTS.

JUST BECAUSE YOU LEFT AND SAID GOODBYE, HEY!
DO YOU THINK THAT I WILL SIT AND CRY?
EVEN IF MY HEART SHOULD TELL ME SO,
DARLING, I WOULD RATHER LET YOU GO.

UH-UH-UH -

"THIS IS DOCTOR WINSTON O'BOGGIE SAYING GOODNIGHT
FROM RECORD PLANT EAST, NEW YORK.
WE HOPE YOU HAD A SWELL TIME!
EV'RYBODY HERE SAYS "HI".
GOODBYE."

JUST BECAUSE YOU LEFT AND SAID GOODBYE,
DO YOU THINK THAT I WILL SIT AND CRY?
EVEN IF MY HEART SHOULD TELL ME SO,
DARLING, I WOULD RATHER LET YOU GO.

UH-UH-UH, GOODBYE!
UH-UH-UH, SO LONG!
BEEN A LONG YEAR!
