Henry Creamer, Turner Layton, 1918
Now won't you listen honey while I say,|
How could you tell me that you're goin' away?
Don't say that we must part,
Don't break your baby's heart;
You know I've loved you for these many years,
Loved you night and day,
Oh! honey baby can't you see my tears?
Listen while I say;
After you've gone, and left me cryin',
After you've gone, there's no denyin'
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad,
You'll miss the dearest pal that 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,
Your heart will break like mine
And you'll want me only,
After you've gone, after you've gone away.
2. Don't you remember how you used to say,|
You'd always love me in the same old way
And now it's very strange,
That you should ever change.
Perhaps somes other sweetie's won your heart,
Tempted you away
But let me warn you tho' we're miles apart,
You'll regret someday.
