Lyrics ALL RIGHT,
SO I AM TO BLAME,
ALL RIGHT,
I'VE BROUGHT ON
ALL THIS SHAME.
YOU'VE TOLD ME NOW
A MILLION TIMES
YOU JUST WON'T LEAVE
THE PAST BEHIND,
SO ALL RIGHT,
MY DEAR,
I'LL SET YOU FREE.

THE LOVE YOU SAID YOU HAD FOR ME
COULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOO STRONG.
IF YOU CAN'T FORGIVE ME NOW
FOR DOING JUST ONE WRONG,

SO, ALL RIGHT,
THO' IT HURTS ME SO,
I'LL PAY THE COST,
YOUR LOVE I'VE LOST,
I GUESS IT'S TIME TO GO.

ALL RIGHT,
SO I AM TO BLAME,
ALL RIGHT,
I'VE BROUGHT ON
ALL THIS SHAME.
YOU'VE TOLD ME NOW
A MILLION TIMES
YOU JUST WON'T LEAVE
THE PAST BEHIND,
SO ALL RIGHT,
MY DEAR,
I'LL SET YOU FREE.

THE LOVE YOU SAID YOU HAD FOR ME
COULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOO STRONG.
IF YOU CAN'T FORGIVE ME NOW
FOR DOING JUST ONE WRONG,

SO, ALL RIGHT,
I'VE CHEATED AND I'VE LIED,
I BROKE EACH VOW,
WE'RE PARTING NOW
BUT IT WILL HAVE TO BE
ALL RIGHT.

Lyrics HOW I'D LOVE TO BE AROUND YOU
WHEN THE LONELY NIGHT SURROUNDS YOU,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU?
WHAT I'D GIVE
TO HAVE THE POWER
TO READ YOUR MIND
ONE HOUR,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU.

JUST TO BE WITH YOU
ONE NIGHT,
YOU AND ME ALONE,
KISS YOUR LIPS
AND HOLD YOU TIGHT
AND HAVE YOU
FOR MY OWN.

IF I ONLY KNEW FOR CERTAIN
I'D CUT OUT ALL MY FLIRTIN',
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU?
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE AROUND YOU
WHEN THE LONELY NIGHT SURROUNDS YOU,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU.

THIS COULD BE A JOY UNENDING,
COULD BE A REAL BEGINNING,
HOW I'D LOVE TO BE
ALONE WITH YOU.

Lyrics HERE I AM AGAIN,
DO YOU REMEMBER ME?
I'M THE ONE YOU TURNED TO
WHEN HE SET YOU FREE.
NOW JUST LIKE YOU,
THE LOVE I HAD DIDN'T LAST
WILL YOU HELP ME
LIKE I HELPED YOU
FORGET THE PAST?

GIVE ME A LITTLE SMILE,
HELP ME FORGET AWHILE,
JUST A LITTLE WORD FROM YOU,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I'M GONNA DO.
OH, HERE I AM AGAIN
WITH LOVE THAT DIDN'T LAST.
WILL YOU HELP ME
LIKE I HELPED YOU
FORGET THE PAST?

HERE I AM AGAIN,
JUST LIKE YOU SAID I'D BE.
I REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAID
SHE'D SET ME FREE.
I GUESS YOU KNEW
THE LOVE WE HAD
WOULDN'T LAST
WILL YOU HELP ME
LIKE I HELPED YOU
FORGET THE PAST?

GIVE ME A LITTLE SMILE,
HELP ME FORGET AWHILE,
JUST A LITTLE WORD FROM YOU,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I'M GONNA DO.
OH, HERE I AM AGAIN
WITH LOVE THAT DIDN'T LAST.
WILL YOU HELP ME
LIKE I HELPED YOU
FORGET THE PAST?

Lyrics YOU WANT ME
TO COME BACK
AND LOVE YOU AGAIN,
I HEAR YOU TALKIN'
BUT YOUR WORDS
AIN'T COMIN' IN.
YOU WANT ME
TO BE SOMETHIN'
THAT I AIN'T NEVER BEEN,
I HEAR YOU TALKIN'
BUT YOUR WORDS
AIN'T COMIN' IN.
I LEARNED A LESSON,
YOU TAUGHT IT TO ME,
I MIGHT BE A-GUESSIN',
BUT,
I THINK YOU MADE
A FOOL OF ME.
YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT
OF THE WAY YOU'D FEEL
BEFORE YOU WERE UNTRUE,
I HEAR YOU TALKIN'
BUT YOUR WORDS
AIN'T COMIN' THROUGH.

YOU WANT ME
TO COME BACK
AND LOVE YOU AGAIN,
I HEAR YOU TALKIN'
BUT YOUR WORDS
AIN'T COMIN' IN.
YOU WANT ME
TO BE SOMETHIN'
THAT I AIN'T NEVER BEEN,
I HEAR YOU TALKIN'
BUT YOUR WORDS
AIN'T COMIN' IN.
I GUESS I'M LUCKY
THAT I FOUND OUT
SO SOON,
'CAUSE THIS HEART
OF MINE
WAS FALLIN'
SO IN LOVE WITH YOU.
BEST OF HEALTH,
LOTS OF LUCK,
I GUESS
THIS IS THE END,
I HEAR YOU TALKIN'
BUT YOUR WORDS
AIN'T COMIN' IN.

Lyrics WELL IF YOU TELL A LIE,
YOU KNOW
THAT I'LL FORGIVE YOU,
THOUGH YOU SAY
OUR LOVE
IS JUST A GAME.
AND WHEN
YOU HEAR MY NAME,
YOU'LL SAY
I'M FROM A STRANGE WORLD,
BUT IS IT SO STRANGE
TO BE IN LOVE WITH YOU?
IS IT SO STRANGE
THAT I LOVE YOU
MORE THAN ALL THE WORLD?
IS IT SO STRANGE
I HAVE NO EYES
FOR ANY OTHER GIRL?
OH WON'T YOU TAKE ME BACK
AND SAY
THAT YOU STILL LOVE ME;
TO WASTE
A LOVE LIKE OURS
WOULD BE A SIN.
LET US KISS AGAIN,
LET ME HOLD YOU NEAR
AND TAKE ME
FROM THIS STRANGE WORLD
I'M LIVING IN.
IS IT SO STRANGE
TO BE SO LONELY
SINCE YOU WENT AWAY?
IS IT SO STRANGE
THAT TEAR DROPS FALL
EACH TIME
I HEAR YOUR NAME?
OH WON'T YOU TAKE ME BACK
AND SAY
THAT YOU STILL LOVE ME;
TO WASTE
A LOVE LIKE OURS
WOULD BE A SIN.
LET US KISS AGAIN,
LET ME HOLD YOU NEAR
AND TAKE ME
FROM THIS STRANGE WORLD
I'M LIVING IN.

Lyrics I HAD A VERY GOOD TIME AT A PARTY
LAST NIGHT,
I REALLY, REALLY DID.
I HAD YOU AND FELT HALE AND HARDY
LAST NIGHT,
I REALLY, REALLY DID.
MY FEET WERE DANCIN'
ON A LITTLE WHITE CLOUD,
I HELD YOU IN MY ARMS
AND I FELT SO PROUD,
MY HEART FELT JUST LIKE SINGIN'
OUT LOUD,
I FELT LIKE
THE LIFE OF THE PARTY.

I HAD A VERY GOOD TIME AT A PARTY
LAST NIGHT,
I REALLY, REALLY DID.
I HAD YOU AND FELT HALE AND HARDY
FOR A WHILE,
I REALLY, REALLY DID.
BUT THEN ABOUT MIDNIGHT
ALONG CAME A GUY,
HE LOOKED YOUR WAY
AND HE CAUGHT YOUR EYE,
I SAID TO MYSELF,
OH ME, OH MY,
THIS LOOKS LIKE
THE END OF THE PARTY.

I HAD A BAD TIME AT THEIR PARTY
LAST NIGHT,
I REALLY, REALLY DID.
I DIDN'T FEEL SO HALE AND HARDY,
HUH UH,
NOT LIKE I DID.
I NEVER THOUGHT
A MAN COULD GET SO MAD,
I NEVER THOUGHT
A MAN COULD FEEL SO BAD,
I LOST THE ONLY GOOD THING
I EVER HAD,
I LOST EV'RYTHING AT A PARTY
LAST NIGHT,
I REALLY, REALLY DID,
OH YEAH,
I REALLY, REALLY,
REALLY, REALLY DID.

Lyrics AS WE'RE INTRODUCED AGAIN
YOU SAY
THAT WE WERE OLD FRIENDS,
BUT YOU USED TO HOLD ME,
YOU USED TO KISS ME
A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.
AND TO ME IT SEEMS SO STRANGE
TO CALL YOU BY ANOTHER NAME
'CAUSE YOU USED TO HOLD ME,
YOU USED TO KISS ME
A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.

JUST SEEING YOU AGAIN
MAKES ME REMEMBER
A LONG, LONG TIME AGO
WHEN YOU WERE MINE.
BUT IT'S TOO LATE
TO LIVE MY LIFE ALL OVER,
OR TO TURN BACK
OLD PAGES OF TIME.

AS YOU TURNED AND WALKED AWAY
I THOUGHT AGAIN OF YESTERDAY
WHEN YOU USED TO HOLD ME,
YOU USED TO KISS ME
A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.

Lyrics I USED TO THINK
ALL THE GIRLS I KNEW
WERE JUST THE SAME,
I THOUGHT
THE ONLY DIFF'RENCE
IN 'EM WAS THEIR NAME.
SINCE I LOST YOU
I REALIZE
THAT I ONCE HAD
THE BEST
AND I CAN'T FIND
A LITTLE PART OF YOU
IN ALL THE REST.
'CAUSE
THERE'S NOT ANY LIKE YOU LEFT,
I WAS TOO BLIND
TO SEE,
TOO LATE I REALIZED
HOW MUCH
YOU MEANT TO ME.
NOW THAT YOU'RE GONE
IT SEEMS
I'M ALWAYS BY MYSELF,
TOO LATE I FIND,
NO,
THERE'S NOT ANY LIKE YOU LEFT.

Lyrics verse 1:
I WAS OFFERED
THE LOVE OF A GIRL WHO WAS MARRIED,
A GIRL WHO SAID SHE'D BE TRUE.
SO I WENT TO MY HEART
TO GET THE RIGHT ANSWER,
AND HERE'S WHAT MY HEART
SAID TO DO:

Chorus:
TURN HER DOWN
YOU FOOLISH MAN,
TURN HER DOWN
AND LEAVE HER ALONE,
TURN HER DOWN,
DOWN AS FAST AS YOU CAN,
TURN HER DOWN
AND SEND HER BACK HOME.

verse 2:
THEN I TOLD MY HEART
THIS GIRL WAS SO LONELY
AND THAT I WAS SO LONELY TOO,
BUT MY HEART SAID,
FORGET HER,
FORGET THAT YOU MET HER,
THERE'S ONLY ONE RIGHT THING
TO DO:

Chorus:
TURN HER DOWN
YOU FOOLISH MAN,
TURN HER DOWN
AND LEAVE HER ALONE,
TURN HER DOWN,
DOWN AS FAST AS YOU CAN,
TURN HER DOWN
AND SEND HER BACK HOME.

verse 3:
SAID MY HEART:
YOU CAN FIND A GIRL
WHO IS SINGLE,
A GIRL
YOU CAN CALL ALL YOUR OWN.
IF SHE CAN'T BE TRUE
TO THE ONE THAT SHE MARRIED,
THEN SHE'LL NEVER BE TRUE TO YOU.

Chorus:
TURN HER DOWN
YOU FOOLISH MAN,
TURN HER DOWN
ND LEAVE HER ALONE,
TURN HER DOWN,
OWN AS FAST AS YOU CAN,
TURN HER DOWN
AND SEND HER BACK HOME.

Lyrics I NEVER KNEW
THAT I COULD BE
SO IN LOVE
UNTIL I MET YOU,
UNTIL I MET YOU.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT I COULD
BE SO TRUE
UNTIL I MET YOU,
UNTIL I MET YOU.
I USED TO BE
A ROUNDER,
I USED TO BE
A FLIRT,
BUT SINCE
I FOUND YOU DARLIN',
YOUR HEART
I'LL NEVER HURT.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT I COULD FALL
SO IN LOVE
UNTIL I MET YOU,
UNTIL I MET YOU.

I NEVER KNEW
THAT I COULD BE
SO IN LOVE
UNTIL I MET YOU,
UNTIL I MET YOU.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT I COULD
BE SO TRUE
UNTIL I MET YOU,
UNTIL I MET YOU.
MY LIFE
IS NOW WORTH LIVING
THE WAY
I WANT IT TO BE.
I THANK YOU
FOR THIS PARADISE
THAT YOU
HAVE GIVEN ME.
I NEVER KNEW
THAT I COULD FALL
SO IN LOVE
UNTIL I MET YOU,
UNTIL I MET YOU.

Lyrics YOU'RE STILL MINE
EACH MOMENT YOU'RE AWAY,
YOU'RE STILL MINE,
DON'T FORGET IT FOR A DAY.
JUST GO ON
AND HAVE YOURSELF A TIME
AS LONG AS YOU REMEMBER
YOU'RE STILL MINE.
SEE OLD FRIENDS
AND HAVE YOURSELF A BALL
DANCE AND SING,
WON'T BOTHER ME AT ALL.
BUT DON'T FALL
FOR ANYBODY'S LINE,
AND REMEMBER WHEN
THEY HOLD YOU
YOU'RE STILL MINE.

DON'T YOU KNOW
HOW MUCH I MISS YOU
'CAUSE I NEVER COULD
RESIST YOU
AND I'M SURE
WHILE YOU'RE AWAY,
YOU'LL HAVE
LOTS OF CHANCES NOW
AT FINDING NEW ROMANCES
BUT REMEMBER
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY:

YOU'RE STILL MINE
EACH MOMENT YOU'RE AWAY,
YOU'RE STILL MINE,
DON'T FORGET IT FOR A DAY.
JUST GO ON
AND HAVE YOURSELF A TIME
AS LONG AS YOU REMEMBER
YOU'RE STILL MINE.

Lyrics I WATCHED YOU WALK AWAY FROM ME
SO LONG AGO,
I DIDN'T KNOW I LOVED YOU
AND I LET YOU GO.
AND JUST TO THINK
I'M THE ONE WHO SET YOU FREE,
WILL I EVER GET USED TO BEING
YOUR OLD USED TO BE.

I'VE GOTTEN USED
TO PEOPLE'S STARES AS I WALK BY,
I KEEP MY HEAD BOWED LOW
SO THEY CAN'T SEE ME CRY.
THEY SAY,
THERE GOES A MAN
WHO LIVES IN MEMORY,
WILL I EVER GET USED TO BEING
YOUR OLD USED TO BE.

I'VE GOT NO ONE
TO HELP ME PASS THESE LONELY DAYS,
WHEN NIGHT TIME COMES
I JUST CAN'T KEEP THE BLUES AWAY.
OR IF I DREAM,
YOUR LOVELY FACE IS ALL I SEE,
WILL I EVER GET USED TO BEING
YOUR OLD USED TO BE.

I'VE GOTTEN USED
TO PEOPLE'S STARES AS I WALK BY,
I KEEP MY HEAD BOWED LOW
SO THEY CAN'T SEE ME CRY.
THEY SAY,
THERE GOES A MAN
WHO LIVES IN MEMORY,
WILL I EVER GET USED TO BEING
YOUR OLD USED TO BE.
