Look at the lady she's the one with the broken heart
Even so she musn't know that I've loved her from the start
She needs a friend now more than a new romance
I'd love to take her in my arms but I can't take the chance

Chorus
Ooh it's such a sad sad story but there'll be a happy ending
Just you wait and see what I can do, ooooh
When you see a lady cryin' can you blame a guy for tryin'
To move on in and make his dreams come true

I gotta secret but I'm keeping it to myself
I'm bored to tears when my heart hears that she loves someone else
I tell her I'm sorry but it's really just a lie
Cos every time he hurts her I'm so happy I could die

Ooh it's such a sad sad story but there'll be a happy ending
Just you wait and see what I can do, ooooh
When you see a lady cryin' can you blame a guy for tryin'
To move on in and make his dreams come true

I love the lady and I want to make her smile
I know she's lonely but it only hurts for a little while
Soon as it's over you know the sun is gonna shine
And when she's ready for someone new, guess who's first in line

Ooh it's such a sad sad story but there'll be a happy ending
Just you wait and see what I can do, ooooh
When you see a lady cryin' can you blame a guy for tryin'
To move on in and make his dreams come true

Ooh it's such a sad sad story but there'll be a happy ending
Just you wait and see what I can do, ooooh
When you see a lady cryin' can you blame a guy for tryin'
To move on in and make his dreams come true
