And you said you'd never leave me
In fact you said you'd be my only one
I said you'd never grieve me baby
For things do when you are only having fun, fun.
You said you'd cry a river
I thought you meant you'd cry a river of tears
You'd rather die than live without me baby
But little girl you're so insincere
You know you count your blessings
But now I find that you were counting sheep, counting sheep
And then I try to court your feelings
I caught your eye and then you caught my cheek
All the trees [prisoners?] must come to view [feed?] now
And there you stood so proud the apple of my eye
You said you'd never leave me baby
But little girl that's the reason why
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Let's go collect our prize now
So entertaining we were no-one no-one [number one, number one?]
The judge is hypnotized now
But after all we both fooled [bought the fool] for so damn long
So face the crowd and take a bow now, bow now
'Cos one more time and it will all be done
'Cos I must have been a show to you now baby
My next performance has just begun
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
Oh, Stop and think for a minute baby
As they bring the curtain down
Another drink then another, maybe
The toast might not make rounds [To do so nothing rhymes?]
I chose the style, the duck and the weaving [wheel?]
We were famous for And here's to him, and here's to yours and
You can thank me for the floor [... take the floor the floor]
Whoa, that's why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa, that's why you have to leave me all alone
I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
I don't know, so you turned around and found another fool
I don't know, so you turned around and found another
