When I think of her, how much I
You know, I get a desperate notion;
That's the way I'm feelin' today.
My heart is breaking 'cause she's making a plaything out of my devotion,
That's the way I feel today.
And you know, without any warning,
Or at least a word to say,
My gal turned her keys in and she packed and went away,
What's the use of livin'?
I'll soon be givin' my body up to the ocean;
'Cause that's the way I feel today.
