"Teardrops In My Eyes"

Those heartaches now are on their way
What makes you want to be that way
You cheated on me and you lied
You've put teardrops in my eyes.

I found out what they say is true
I hope someday that you'll be blue
And then you'll know, dear, why I try
With these teardrops in my eyes.

The news is out all over town
That you've been seen out runnin' round
I turned my head and gossip flies
'Cause it puts teardrops in my eyes.

I found out what they say is true
I hope someday that you'll be blue
And then you'll know, dear, why I try
With these teardrops in my eyes.

I never thought you'd let me down
But now at last I understand
You've wrecked my life and broke our vow
And now you'll have to pay for it somehow.

I found out what they say is true
I hope someday that you'll be blue
And then you'll know, dear, why I try
With these teardrops in my eyes
With these teardrops in my eyes.
