I'll be good while you're gone
I'll be lonesome while you're gone
I'll be good and lonesome
While you're gone

Sure as stars are in the sky
From the day we said goodbye
I'll be mighty lonesome
While you're gone

Every night, I'll pound the pillow
Feeling weepy as a willow
When my room cold and still, oh
How I yearn for your return

But I'll be good while you're gone
I'll be lonesome while you're gone
I'll be good and lonesome and blue

So before you go away
Won't you let me hear you say
You'll be good and lonesome too

I'll be good while you're gone
(I'll be, oh, so good)
I'll be lonesome while you're gone
(I'll be lonesome too)
I'll be good and lonesome
While you're gone

Sure as stars are in the sky
(Stars are in the sky)
From the day we said goodbye
(When we said goodbye)
I'll be mighty lonesome
When you're gone

Every night, I'll pound the pillow
Feeling weepy as a willow
When my room is cold and still, oh
How I yearn for your return

But I'll be good while you're gone
(I'll be, oh, so good)
I'll be lonesome while you're gone
(I'll be lonesome too)
I'll be good and lonesome and blue

So before you go away
(When you go away)
Won't you let me hear you say
(Let me hear you say)
You'll be good and lonesome
I do mean lonesome
Good and lonesome too
