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

No more his eager call
The writings on the wall
The dreams you dreamed have all
Gone astray 

The man that won you
Has run 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 will turn up
There's just no letup 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
