(Jay Livingston, Raymond Evans)
You promised me you'd come back,
I promised to wait.
But I was a little too lonely,
And you were a little too late.
Too many long nights alone,
Not even a date.
So I got a little too lonely,
And you were a little too late.
You never did write, you never did call.
When I had the blues, you were havin' a ball.
You thought that I'd be here to run to,
Now I'm gonna do to you what I've been done to.
Too bad about you, my friend,
It could've been great.
But I was a little too lonely,
And now you're a little too late.
~interlude~
You never did write, you never did call.
When I had the blues, you were havin' a ball.
You thought that I'd be here to run to,
Now I'm gonna do to you what I've been done to.
Too bad about you, my friend,
It could've been great.
But I got a little too lonely,
And you were a little too late!
