You ask if I remembered, when we first met
Girl, tell me how could I ever forget

There, you were standing there
Oh, with ruby lips and the golden hair
Your beauty seem to hypnotize me
I had that feeling I was no longer free

But when I ask you for a dance
You wouldn't even give me a chance
And it hurt me through and through
That was the first time I got over you

You had my heart dingling
Like a puppet on a string
To you I meant nothing, darling
But to me you meant everything

Girl, you know since then through the years
I have shed so many tears
And all because of you
I couldn't cry if I wanted to

I don't know why I still love you
'Cause you don't even want me around
Year after year it's the same old thing
You build me up, to let me down

So go on and hurt me
Oh, like you did
This time it'll be different
My tears you'll see no more

'Cause I've cried so through the years
Until I've run out of tears
And all because of you
I couldn't cry if I wanted to

I'll never shed another tear
I couldn't cry no love
Seems as though the pain have flown
The tears from my eyes

I'll never cry, never
Never no more
I'll never shed another tear

Holland, Edward, Jr. James / Whitfield, Norman J.
