You think it's gonna be a lonely night at home
Waitin' on the ringin' of the telephone
He said goodbye he hung up and left you hangin' on
But as sure as he's gone you won't be lonely long

So don't waste your time
Thinkin' 'bout the things you'll miss
And don't sit alone cryin' while you reminisce
You say you'll never feel that way again
Girl you couldn't be more wrong
Just as sure as he's gone you won't be lonely long

No longer than the time it takes me
To drive across town
Run up on your porch and knock on your door
No longer than the time it takes you
To make a tear drop
I'll be there before it hits the floor

He had his chance to love you all I want is mine
The tickin' of the clock is killin' more than time
Cause ther'll be a hundred just like me there
Before the break of dawn
Just as sure as he's gone you won't be lonely long

No longer than the time it takes me
To drive across town
Run up on your porch and knock on your door
No longer than the time it takes you
To make a tear drop
I'll be there before it hits the floor

So don't waste your time thinkin' 'bout
The things you'll miss
And don't sit alone cryin' while you reminisce
You say you'll never feel that way again girl
You couldn't be more wrong
Just as sure as he's gone you won't be lonely long
