And to moan

An it caused me to moan
You know that love done caused
Me to leave my happy home

Now you can see me
What a careless love have -

Then I said, 'That's the reason'
Oh careless love'

And you see what this careless love

What careless love have done
An you know it done
'Caused me to do a lot of things wrong

An that caused me to
Leave my happy home.
