Gladys Knight & The Pips – One Less Bell To Answer lyrics

One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
I should be happy, but all I do is cry
Oh, I should be happy

I only know that since he's left my life is so empty
Though you try to forget it just can't be done
Each time the doorbell rings, you still run

I don't know how in the world to stop thinking of him
'Cause I still love him so
I end each day the way I start out, crying my heart out

One less man to pick up after
No more laughter, no more love
Since he went away, since he went away

One less bell to answer
Oh, why, why did he leave?
One less bell to answer
Oh, why, why did he leave?
