Why am I sitting alone tonight, When I could be out where the lights are bright? It's all because of Jim, It's all because of Jim. Why am I wasting these precious years? Why am I crying these bitter tears? It's all because of Jim, It's all because of Jim.
Jim doesn't ever bring me pretty flowers, Jim never tries to cheer my lonely hours, Don't know why I'm so crazy for Jim. Jim never tells me I'm his hearts desire. I never seem to set his love afire Gone are the years I've wasted on him.
Sometimes when I get feeling low, I say "Let's call it quits." Then I hang on and let him go Breaking my heart in bits. Some day I know tht Jim will up and leave me, But even if he does you can believe me, I'll go on carrying the torch for Jim.
