I'm Crying 'Cause I Know I'm Losing You

    (Cliff Friend)

Transcribed from vocals by Cliff Edwards, recorded December 31, 1927,
From The Vintage Recordings of Cliff Edwards (Ukulele Ike), Take Two Records, TT419CD.

Do-do-do-do-do-do,
You ask me why I cry, pretending that you don't know;
But dear, you do.
Just like a happy day that's ending,
Our sweet romance is ending, too.

I'm crying 'cause I know I'm losing you;
I'm sighing 'cause I know I'm losing you;
Though you say no, and smile at me;
It's just a smile of sympathy.

I've tried to make you happy, honest true,
Instead somehow I know I made you blue;
My heart is aching, breaking in two,
'Cause I know I'm losing you.

Your love don't thrill me like it used to do;
I've got the feeling that I'm losing you;
Although we pet, I understand,
What love I get is second hand.

I hate to lose you, honey, honest true,
I've got so used to all the things you do;
I'll have to start all over; adieu,
'Cause I know I'm losing you.
