Hang up the phone, lose my number
Leave me alone so I can cry
Don't touch my heart anymore
It's broken and sore
And the moon just turned blue
Goodbye, goodbye

Just go on back to your old boyfriend
He'll take you home
And I know why, it's only fair I guess
My heart won't die from this
And the moon just turned blue
Goodbye, goodbye

I said the moon just turned blue
I was lookin' right at you
Lookin' sweet and baby blue
And shy, oh Lord

I got me thinking, baby, such a fancy lady
She might be tellin' mighty fancy lies

So count me out of your triangle
I'm number three and honey I can't pretend
I don't need heartache at all
My heart can't take the fall
And the moon just turned blue
Goodbye, goodbye
(Goodbye, mama)

It's only fair I guess
My heart won't die from this
And the moon just turned blue
Goodbye, goodbye
I said the moon it just turned blue
Baby, bye bye
