Kindly lend an ear to my appeal
I've lost the only man I had
You will know just how I feel
When I tell you I'm sadder than sad!
Ever since he left I'm looking pale
And ev'ry day I lose a pound
Won't you help me look around
Till my ever-lovin' man is found
Bring back my lovin' man
Bring back my great big bunch of sweetness
Bring back them kisses sweet
Find 'em! Find 'em!
The kisses with the steam behind 'em!
Beneath the carpet in my hall
I got a little money
Take it all! Take it all!
If you will bring back
To me my ever-lovin' man
All I do is worry, day and night
I've lost the roses off my cheek
And I've lost my appetite
Haven't eaten a thing for a week
If you saw the foolish things I do
I know you'd stand right up and laugh
I've just kiss'd away 'most half
Of his ever-lovin' photograph
