Tho' you're always waxing sentimental
And sweet words are all I ever hear
You don't really give a continental
Deep down in your heart you're not sincere
You call everybody darling
And everybody calls you darling too
You don't mean what you're sayin'
It's just a game you're playin'
But you'll find someone else
Can you play the game as well as you
If you call everybody darling
Then love won't come a knockin' at your door
And as the years go by
You'll sit and wonder why
Nobody calls you darling anymore
