The night is bitter,The stars have lost their glitter,The winds grow colder,And suddenly you’re olderAnd all because ofThe man that got away.No more his eager call,The writing’s on the wall,The dreams you dreamed have allGone astray.The man that won youHas run off and undone you.That great beginningHas seen it’s final inning,Don’t know what happenedIt’s all a crazy game.No more that all-time thrillFor you’ve been through the mill,And never a new love willBe 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 letupThe livelong night and day.Ever since this world beganThere is nothing sadder thanA one-man womanLooking for the man that got away . . .<interlude>The road gets rougher,It’s lonelier and tougher.With hope you burn up,Tomorrow he may turn up.There’s just no letupThe livelong night and day.Ever since this world beganThere is nothing sadder thanA one-man womanLooking for the manThe man that got away . . .The man that got away . . .
