John Lennon

Just Because

Lloyd Price

 

"Ah, remember this?
Why, I must have been thirteen when this came out!
Or was it fourteen?
Or was it twenty-two?
I could have been twelve actually."

just because you left and said goodbye,
do you think that I will sit and cry?
Even if my heart should tell me so,
darling, I would rather let you go.

Just because I want someone who's kind,
with a heart as good and pure as mine.
But maybe I am asking for too much,
darling, please don't ever break my heart.

I know you think you're smart,
just runnin' around breaking lovers hearts.

Just because you left and said goodbye, hey!
Do you think that I will sit and cry?
Even if my heart should tell me so,
darling, I would rather let you go.

Uh-uh-uh -

"this is doctor winston o'boggie saying goodnight
from record plant east, new york.
We hope you had a swell time!
Ev'rybody here says "hi".
Goodbye."

just because you left and said goodbye,
do you think that I will sit and cry?
Even if my heart should tell me so,
darling, I would rather let you go.

Uh-uh-uh -
goodbye!
Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh -
so long!
Been a long year!
