BURT BACHARACH lyrics - Little Betty Falling Star

BURT BACHARACH
"Little Betty Falling Star"

I put you up there
So far above me
An angel star
Just meant to love me!

Shalala, shala-lala
Shalala, shala-lala

'Till something happened to you
You used to shine in the blue
And the world was under your spell
'Till down from the sky you fell
Little Betty falling star!

Shalala, shala-lala
Shalala, shala-lala

No star was ever so bright
And we would meet every night!
Now my empty arms long for you
I just can't believe we're through
Little Betty falling star!

Shalala, shala-lala
Shalala, shala-lala

I put you up there
So far above me
An angel star
Just meant to love me!

Well, you made me cry
Would you please tell me why?
I turned out to be so wrong
Where is my star, why has it gone?
There's no quarrel we cannot patch
So I'm waiting her to catch
Little Betty falling star!

Shalala, shala-lala
Shalala, shala-lala

Dear Betty falling star!
My Betty falling star!
