I'm sorry we parted,
I was blue and down-hearted,
How can anyone, anyone bet on love?

Now that we're together again,
Oh, life will be sweet again,
You're the one, the one I adore.

My heart was just a plaything to you.
Just let your love haunt me,
And say you'll be mine again.
Please whisper that you want me.

And now that you're so sweet,
Without you, life wouldn't be complete,
How can anyone, anyone bet on love?

Spoken: Now swing, you cats! You can't bet on love. Hmmm, I'm so melancholy!

I'm sorry we parted,
I was blue and down-hearted,
How can anyone, anyone bet on love?

Now that we're together again,
Life will be so sweet again,
For you're the one, you're the one I adore.

My heart was just a plaything to you.
Just let your love haunt me,
And say you'll be mine again.
Please whisper that you want me.

And now that you're so sweet,
Without you, life wouldn't be complete,
How can anyone, anyone bet on love?

Spoken: Yowza!
