well I did just what you told me
you told me to forget
today some other baby
just as though we'd never met

well I did what you told me
well I did what you told me
I can't forget
I'm crying yet
over you

Well I threw away your photo
Just like you told me to
I put your letters in the fire
and got mine back from you

well I did what you told me
Ooh babe, just what you told me
I can't forget, Honey
I'm crying over you

What's going on baby? (unclear)

Well I still go to the dance hall
I listen to the noise
I try to tell myself I'm having fun
with the boys (unclear)

well I did what you told me
Ooh I did just what you told me
I can't forget
I'm crying yet
over you

Oh baby, can't forget, Honey
I'm just crying for you
