(Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh oh oh oh ooh-ah-ah, only the lonely, only the lonely)

Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know this feeling ainít right (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

There goes my baby, there goes my heart
Theyíre gone forever, so far apart
But only the lonely know why I cry, only the lonely
(Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh oh oh oh ooh-ah-ah, only the lonely, only the lonely)

Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know the heartaches Iíve been through (Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know I cry and cry for you (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

Maybe tomorrow, a new romance
No more sorrow, but thatís the chance
Youíve got to take, if your lonely heart breaks
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

IT'S OVER - 25/06/1964
2 weeks at #1 - 18 weeks on chart

Your baby doesnít love you anymore

Golden days before they end
Whisper secrets to the wind
Your baby wonít be near you anymore

Tender nights before they fly
Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesnít want you anymore, itís over

It breaks your heart in two
To know sheís been untrue
But, oh, what will you do
When she says to you thereĎs someone new
Weíre through, weíre through

Itís over, itís over, itís over

All the rainbows in the sky
Start to weep then say goodbye
You wonít be seeing rainbows anymore

Setting suns before they fall
Echo to you thatís all, thatís all
But youíll see lonely sunsets after all

Itís over, itís over, itís over
Itís over

OH PRETTY WOMAN - 08/10/1964

Pretty woman, walkin' down the street
Pretty woman the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you, mercy

Pretty woman won't you pardon me
Pretty woman I couldn't help but see
Pretty woman that you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me

Pretty woman stop awhile
Pretty woman talk awhile
Pretty woman give your smile to me
Pretty woman yeah, yeah, yeah
Pretty woman look my way
Pretty woman say you'll stay with me
Cuz I need you, I'll treat you right
Come with me baby, be mine tonight

Pretty woman don't walk on by
Pretty woman don't make me cry
Pretty woman don't walk away, hey, OK
If that's the way it must be OK
I guess I'll go on home, it's late
There'll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see
Is she walkin' back to me
Yeah, she's walkin' back to me
Oh, oh, pretty woman
