I SOLD MY HEART TO THE JUNKMAN
Patty Labelle and The Bluebells

"...song, this is a very sad song, this next
song we're gonna do.
The song is so sad that sometimes I have to
leave the stage and cry in the backstage a
little bit while I'm singing this song.
The reason this song is so sad because this
story happened to me just a little while ago
(not true, but true) (audience laughs)
And it was, it was a thing where I met this
this beautiful girl, right? was she a
beautiful girl as she was, she was nice and ...
and I gave her my whole heart, every every bit,
and she gave it back to me a month later all
beat up, so bad and
so terrible looking that
I Sold My Heart To The Junkman !
Now I can never fall in love again...."

Well I gave my heart to you, open, so open and trusting
And you gave it back to me, it was broken up and busting
(sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman
(sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman
I can never fall in love again

Oh and I know you took my heart, you thought that you
could use it
When you gave it back like a toy
you broken and bruised
(sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman
(I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman
I can never fall in love again

Now, it was a movie sad scene, I played my part
Ooh I wanted the happy ending, but all I got was
a broken heart
(all he got was a broken heart)
(I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman(I sold my heart) I sold my
heart to the junkman
I can never fall in love again

Now I swear it was a movie setting, baby I played my part
And all I wanted was a happy ending,
but now I'm left with a broken heart
(now he's left with a broken heart)
(I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman
(I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman
I can never fall in love again

I gave my heart to you, so open and trusting
And you gave it back to me, it was broken up and busting
(so I sold) I sold my heart to the junkman
(yes I sold) I sold my heart to the junkman
I can never fall in love again

Yes I did sold my heart to the junkman
Yes I did, yes I did
Sold my heart to the junkman
Now I can never fall in love again
Since I sold my heart to the junkman
