INTRO:

 

The torch I carry is handsome

It's worth its heartache in ransom

 

And when the twilight steals

I know how the lady in the harbor feels

 

When I want rain, I get sunny weather

I'm just as blue as the sky

Since love is gone, can't pull myself together

Guess I'll hang my tears out to dry

 

Friends ask me out, and I tell them I'm busy

Must get a new alibi

I stay at home, and ask myself "Where is she?"

Guess I'll hang my tears out to dry

 

Dry little tear drops, my little tear drops

Hanging on a stream of dreams

Fly, little mem'ries, my little mem'ries

Remind her of our crazy schemes

 

Yes, somebody said "Just forget about her"

So I gave that treatment a try

And strangely enough, I got along without her

Then one day she passed me right by

Oh well

I guess I'll hang my tears out to dry
