Walked On By

I gave you no money, I gave you no diamond rings
I didn’t have ways or means to buy you pretty things
I gave you good lovin’ – like you never had before

I sent you no roses, nothin’ from gay Paris
But when the night were cold and you were all alone
I gave you good lovin’ – like you never had before

Well you gave me no warnin’ and you gave me sign
I walked through the door you fed me two-timin’ lines
As I was cryin’, you just walked on by

Well it’s a shame how sometimes we feel
That the grass is greener in some other field
And all this love- well you say you could not feel

Well I saw you on the street with your uptown guy
Just like your name was in the headlines of the New York Times
As I was cryin’, you just walked on by

Lead/Interlude

Well I’ve been told that what goes around
Will come back someday and leave you on the ground
And all this love, well it won’t be around

Well he threw you out baby just as quick as you please
And now you come here crawlin’ on your hands and knees
And through these tears you tell me I’m all you’ll ever need

Well now you’re cryin’, it’s my turn to walk on by
And now you’re cryin’, it’s my turn to walk on by
