Sweet, sweet were the lips that kissed me
Warm, warm were the arms that held me
Sweet, sweet were the lips, yeah
Warm, warm were the arms
But so, so filled with the love you gave me

Wet, wet were the tears on my face
Long, long were the hours I cried them
Wet, wet were the tears, yeah
Long, long were the hours
But so, so filled with the love you gave me

My friends tried to tell me
That mis'ry would a-happen to me
But back in school I didn't believe
That misery and pain a-would-a ever get to me, oh

Since, since you've been gone, gone away
I cry, cry lonely teardrops night and day
Since, since you've been gone, yeah
I cry, I cry lonely teardrops
All so, so filled with the love you gave me

Sweet, sweet were the lips that kissed me
Warm, warm were the arms that held me...
