THIS PART OF THE WORLD
WRITER LEW DeWITT

Everything that I see since I moved far away Only serves to upset and remind me Of a beautiful girl in a part of the world That I tried to leave far behind me. Like the girl on the street that I happened to meet As I was about to walk past her She looked just like her and my heart felt a stir So I stopped her and proceeded to ask her. What are you doin' in this part of the world Oh, forgive me but I thought you were someone else For a moment you looked like a girl That I came here to forget But you see I haven't yet And I won't in this part of the world. Every car on the road's like the one that she drove Makes me think that she's come to meet me In this part of the world, just the sight of that girl Would relieve me and cure me completely. And it happened today in the very same way When a car just like her's pulled beside me With a beautiful girl so I called out to her Hello dear, how on earth did you find me? What are you doin' in this part of the world Oh, forgive me but I thought you were someone else For a moment you looked like a girl That I came here to forget But you see I haven't yet And I won't in this part of the world...
