Johnny Maestro – What A Surprise lyrics

Ooooh... I was waiting at the corner
Had an 8 oclock date
I got there kind of early
Hoped you wouldn't be late
But suddenly I saw you
And my world came to an end
For you were walking down the street with my best friend

What a surprise
What a surprise

I couldn't believe my eyes

So I followed you to your home
And watched you both go inside
And as I hid in the hallway
I just broke right down and cried
And when our friends began arriving
It was plain to see
That you invited everyone, everyone but me

What a surprise
What a surprise

I couldn't believe my eyes

Oh I stood outside of your door
And took it long as I could
And then I had to go inside
To see just how things stood
But when I walked into the room
Our friends began to cheer
And you rushed up and kissed me
Shouting Happy Birthday dear

What a surprise
What a surprise

I couldn't believe my eyes

And if I live forever I wont forget, no never
That surprise party you threw for me

Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday
