  • The night is bitter
    The stars have lost their glitter
    The winds grow colder
    And suddenly you're older
    And all because of the man that got away.

    No more his eager call
    The writing's on the wall
    The dreams you dreamed have all
    Gone astray.

    The man that won you
    Has gone off and undone you.
    That great beginning
    Has seen the final inning.
    Don't know what happened. It's all a crazy game!

    No more that all time thrill
    For you've been through the mill
    And never a new love will
    Be the same.

    Good riddance, goodbye!
    Every trick of his you're on to
    But fools will be fools
    And where's he gone to?

    The road gets rougher
    It's lonelier and tougher.
    With hope you burn up
    Tomorrow he may turn up
    There's just no let up the live-long night and day.

    Ever since this world began
    There is nothing sadder than
    A one-man woman looking for
    The man that got away...
    The man that got away.
