You've promised you would be true to me
But we both know you could never be
You've been puttin' you on since the day we met
Promises promises that's all I ever get that's all I ever get
And then you promised me a ring a weddin' gown and all of them things
I ain't seen no diamond yet
Promises promises that's all I ever get that's all I ever get
Promises promises that's all I get
All you gave me since the day we met you'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises promises that's all I ever get that's all I ever get
[ guitar ]
And now you tell me you're gone away you swear to me that this time you'll stay
I can't believe I'm rid of you yet
Promises promises that's all I ever get that's all I ever get
Promises promises that's all I get
All you gave me since the day we met you'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises promises that's all I ever get that's all I ever get
Promises promises that's all I get
