The night is bitter, the stars have lost their glitter The winds grow colder, suddenly you're a lot older And all because of a gal who got away No more her eager call, the writing is on the wall All those dreams you dreamed, they have all gone astray
The gal who won you, she's run off and undone you That great beginning has seen the final inning I don't know what happened, its all a crazy game No more - no more that all time thrill because you have been put though the mill And never a new love will ever be the same
Good riddance, good-bye Every trick of hers you are on to But fools will be fools and where's she gone? Where has she gone?
The road gets rougher, it's lonelier and it's tougher With hope ya burn up, tomorrow maybe she'll turn up There ain't no let up, live-long night, night and day
Ever since, since this world began There ain't nothin' sadder than A long-lost loser Lookin' for his gal who got away
