After you've gone - and left me crying

After you've gone - there's no denying

You'll feel blue - you're gonna be sad

You've missed the dearest pal that (slickest partner) you ever had

 

There'll come a time - don't you forget it

(Yeah) There'll come a time - when you're gonna regret it

Some day when you get lonely

Your heart will break like mine - (and) you'll want me only

 

After you've gone (split) - after you've gone away (flown the coop)

 

After we paid - our dues together

You should have stayed - through all that nasty weather

Someday while you're feeling badly

You'll need the only one that loves you so madly

 

But I'll be gone - yes I'll be gone - to stay

Yeah after I've gone - after I've gone away
