One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
I should be happy
But all I do is cry
Cry, cry, no more laughter / Oh, I should be happy
Oh, why did he go?
I only know that since he left
My life's so empty
Thought I try to forget
It just can't be done
Each time the doorbell rings
I still run
I don't know how in the world
To stop thinking of him / I should be happy
Cause I still love him so
I end each day the way I start out / I start and end each day crying
Crying my heart out
One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
No more laughter
No more love
Since he went away
Since he went away
A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there
To hold you tight
And no one there
You can kiss goodnight
A room is still a room
Even when there's nothing there but gloom
But a room is not a house
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart
Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
And when it ends
It ends in tears
So darling, have a heart
Don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stair and turn the key
Oh, please be there
Still in love with me
One less bell to answer / Each time the doorbell rings, I still run
One less egg to fry / I'm lucky I've got one less man
One less man / to pick up after
No more laughter
No more love
Since he went away
Since he went away
All I do is cry.
