The night is bitter,the stars have lost their glitter;the winds grow colderand 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 allgone astray.
the man that won youhas gone off and undone you.that great beginninghas 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 willbe the same.
good riddance, good-bye!ev'ry 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 letup the live-long night and day!
ever since this world beganthere is nothing sadder thana one-man woman looking forthe man that got away....the man that got away.
