Lyrics I REMEMBER OTHER DAYS,
HOW I USED TO WEEP
OVER THINGS YOU SAID TO ME,
I COULDN'T EVEN SLEEP.
YOU FORGOT YOUR PROMISES,
EV'RY SINGLE VOW,
ALL YOU DID WAS LAUGH AT ME
BUT THINGS ARE DIFF'RENT NOW.

I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.
EV'RY ROAD HAS A TURNING
THAT'S ONE THING YOU'RE LEARNING.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
WHAT A FOOL I USED TO BE.
NOW I FOUND TWO EYES
JUST A LITTLE BIT BLUER,
I FOUND A HEART
JUST A LITTLE BIT TRUER.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.

HOW CAN I FORGET THE HOURS
THAT I WORRIED THROUGH?
WONDERING THE LIVE-LONG DAY
JUST WHAT NEXT THING TO DO.
IN THOSE DAYS
YOU NEVER THOUGHT ANYTHING
OF ME,
BUT THE SLAVE
THAT WAS ALL YOURS
AND NOW AT LAST IS FREE.

I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.
EV'RY ROAD HAS A TURNING
THAT'S ONE THING YOU'RE LEARNING.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
WHAT A FOOL I USED TO BE.
NOW I FOUND TWO EYES
JUST A LITTLE BIT BLUER,
I FOUND A HEART
JUST A LITTLE BIT TRUER.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.

Lyrics verse 1:
THERE'S SWEETNESS
IN THE CALL
OF THE WOODLAND DOVE
AS HIS LOVESONG
ECHOS THROUGH THE TREES,
THERE'S SWEETNESS
IN THE ROSE
WITH ITS SYMBOL OF LOVE,
FLOATING ON A SUMMER BREEZE.
BUT NOTHING CAN COMPARE
TO THE SWEETNESS
OF THE ONE AND ONLY ONE
I LOVE.

Chorus:
SWEET AND LOVELY,
SWEETER
THAN THE ROSES IN MAY,
SWEET AND LOVELY,
HEAVEN MUST HAVE SENT HER
MY WAY.
SKIES ABOVE ME
NEVER WERE
AS BLUE AS HER EYES,
AND SHE LOVES ME,
WHO WOULD WANT
A SWEETER SURPRISE.

verse 2:
WHEN SHE NESTLES IN MY ARMS
SO TENDERLY
THERE'S A THRILL
THAT WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS.
IN MY HEART
A SONG OF LOVE
IS TAUNTING ME,
MELODY HAUNTING ME.

Chorus:
SWEET AND LOVELY,
SWEETER
THAN THE ROSES IN MAY,
AND SHE LOVES ME,
THERE IS NOTHING MORE
I CAN SAY.
