A LITTLE BITTY TEAR


when you said you were leaving tomorrow
that today was our last day
I said there'd be no sorrow
that I'd laugh when you walked away

I said I'd laugh when you left me
full of funny as you went out the door
that I'd have another one waiting
I'd wave goodbye as you go

everything went off like I planned it
and I really put on quite a show
in my heart I felt I could stand it
till you walked with your grip through the door

but a little bitty tear let me down
spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not to make a frown
but a little bitty tear let me down
