ROSEMARY CLOONEY
"The Man That Got Away"

The night is bitter
The stars have lost their glitter
The winds grow colder
And suddenly you're older
And all because of the man that got away

No more his eager call
The writing's on the wall
The dreams you dreamed have all
Gone astray

The man that won you
Has gone off and undone you
That great beginning
Has seen the final inning
Don't know what happened
It's all a crazy game!

No more that all-time thrill
For you've been through the mill
And never a new love will
Be the same

Good riddance, good-bye!
Ev'ry trick of his you're on to
But, fools will be fools
And where's he gone to?

The road gets rougher
It's lonelier and tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow he may turn up
There's just no letup the live-long night and day!

Ever since this world began
There is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman looking for
The man that got away
The man that got away
