After you've gone and left me cryin',
After you've gone there's no denyin',
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad,
You'll miss the dearest pal that you have ever had.
There'll come a time now don't forget it
There'll come a time when you regret it.
Some day when you grow lonely,
Your heart will break like mine and you will want me only,
After you've gone, after you've gone away.
After I'm gone, after we break up,
After I'm gone you're gonna wake up;
You will find you were blind
To let somebody come along and change your mind.
After the years we've been together,
Through joy and tears, all kinds of weather,
Some day blue and down-hearted,
You'll long to be with me again back where you started,
After I'm gone, after I'm gone away.
