Now won't you listen to me honey while i say,
How could you tell me that you're goin' away?
Don't say that we must part, don't break my aching heart
You know i've loved you truly many years, loved you night and day
How could you tell it to me? can't you see my tears?
Now listen while i say
After you've gone, and left me crying
After you've gone, there's no denying
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad
You'll miss the dearest pal you've ever had
There'll come a time, now don't forget it
There'll come a time, when you'll regret it
Some day, when you grow lonely
You heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone, after you've gone away
After you've gone, after the break up
After you've gone, you're gonna wake up
You will find that you were blind
To let somebody come and change your mind
After the years, we've been together
Their joy and all tears, a-all kinds of weather
Someday, when you're downhearted
You'll long to be with me right back where you started
After you've gone, after you've gone away!
