The night is bitter,
The stars have lost their glitter,
The winds grow colder,
And suddenly you`re older
And all because of
The man that got away.

No more his eager call,
The writing`s on the wall,
The dreams you dreamed have all
Gone astray.
The man that won you
Has run off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen it`s final inning,
Don`t know what happened
It`s all a crazy game.

No more that all-time thrill
For you`ve been through the mill,
And never a new love will
Be the same.

Good riddance, good-bye.
Every trick of his you`re on to -
But fools will be fools and where`s he gone to?

The road gets rougher,
It`s lonelier and tougher.
With hope you burn up,
Tomorrow he may turn up.
There`s just no letup
The livelong night and day.

Ever since this world began
There is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman
Looking for the man that got away . . .

The road gets rougher,
It`s lonelier and tougher.
With hope you burn up,
Tomorrow he may turn up.
There`s just no letup
The livelong night and day.

Ever since this world began
There is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman
Looking for the man
The man that got away . . .

The man that got away . . .
