VP_000050 Verse 1Now won't you listen dearie while I say How could you tell me that you're going away? Don't say that we must part Don't break my aching heart You know I've loved you truly many years Loved you night and day How can you leave me, can't you see my tears? Listen while I say Chorus 1After you've gone and left me crying After you've gone There's no denying, you'll feel blue, You'll feel sad, You'll miss the dearest pal you've ever had There'll come a time, now don't forget it, There'll come a time, when you'll regret it Some day when you grow lonely Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only After you've gone After you've gone away. Verse 2Don't you remember how you used to say You'd always love me in the same old way? And now it's very strange That you should ever change Sometimes I think someone has won your heart Tempted you away But let me warn you tho' we're miles apart You'll regret some day
