Lyrics verse:
I USED TO BE
THE APPLE OF YOUR EYE,
I HAD YOU WITH ME
EV'RY DAY.
BUT NOW
WHENEVER
YOU ARE PASSING BY
YOU'RE ALWAYS LOOKING
THE OTHER WAY.
IT'S LITTLE THINGS
LIKE THIS
THAT PROMPT ME TO SAY:

Chorus:
YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME,
AND NOW I'M FALLING FOR YOU.
YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT IT'S TRUE.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT
WHEN YOU BROUGHT
THE LOVELY PRESENTS
YOU BOUGHT
WHY HADN'T YOU
BROUGHT ME MORE,
BUT NOW
IF YOU'D COME
I'D WELCOME
ANYTHING FROM
THE FIVE
AND TEN CENT STORE.
YOU USED TO CALL ME
THE TOP,
YOU PUT ME UP
ON A THRONE.
YOU LET ME FALL
WITH A DROP
AND NOW
I'M OUT ON MY OWN.
BUT AFTER THINKING IT
OVER AND OVER,
I GOT
WHAT WAS COMING TO ME,
JUST LIKE THE STING
OF A BEE,
YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME.
