I'll play second fiddle to your new love while it lasts
Just like all the others I played for in the past
Why can't I be a leader and play a leading part
Why must I always have to play second fiddle in your heart
So play fiddle play will there never come a day
When I won't have to play the part of second fiddle in your heart
[ fiddle ]
Each time you find a new love you leave me here to cry
The teardrops tell a story of a love that just won't die
Like an early mornin' paper the news you get just part
Why must I always have to play second fiddle in your heart
So play fiddle play...
