Heptune presents:

Mean to Me

    (Turk, Ahlert)

Transcribed from vocals by Ruth Etting, recorded April 15, 1926,
From Ruth Etting, Living Era, Academy Sound and Vision, Ltd., CD AJA 5008.

Sweetheart, I love you,
Think the world of you,
But I'm afraid you don't care for me;
You never show it,
Don't let me know it;
Everyone says I'm a fool to be
Pining the whole day through;
Why do you act like you do?

You're mean to me,
Why must you be mean to me?
Gee, honey, it seems to me
You love to see me cryin';
I don't know why.

I stay home
Each night when you say you'll phone;
You don't, and I'm left alone,
Singing the blues and sighing.

You treat me coldly
Each day in the year;
You always scold me,
Whenever somebody is near, dear.

It must be
Great fun to be mean to me,
You shouldn't, for can't you see
What you mean to me.

You treat me coldly
Each day in the year;
You always scold me,
Whenever somebody is near, dear.

It must be
Great fun to be mean to me,
You shouldn't, for can't you see
What you mean to me.
