I just had to laugh
To keep from cryin'
My heart stopped
I almost dropped
When you laid the news on me

I just had to run,
To keep from crawlin'
At your feet
Darlin' beggin' pleadin'
Don't take that thing from me

What'll I do now?
Won't you tell me please?
It's hard to know, where I stand
When I'm down here on my knees

I just had to smile,
To keep from frownin'
A happy clown,
Inside I'm down
Ever since you said we're through

I just had to ask,
To keep from wonderin'
The mystery was foggin' me
Like a fool I played the sleuth

What'll I do now?
Won't you tell me please?
It's hard to know where I stand
When I'm down here on my knees

I just had to laugh
To keep from cryin'
My heart stopped
I almost dropped
When you laid the news on me

I just had to swim
To keep from drownin'
A swollen stream
Of tears and dreams
White water turning blue

What'll I do now?
Won't you tell me please?
It's hard to know where I stand
It's hard to know where I stand
It's hard to know where I stand
When I'm down here on my knees

I'm so low I could sit on a dime and swing my feet
