Perry Como - "Don't Leave Me" lyrics

The willow weeps
and having wept
can weep no more
but still it cries for me
it cries in sympathy
it knows that you are gone . . .
don't leave me baby!

There was a time
when you were mine
an' not so long ago
I used to say
you'd never go away
you'd never leave me lonely . . .
don't leave me baby!

Think about the happy times
the groovy times
don't tell me they are gone
I just can't carry on an'
and know that you're not here
you're not near
anymore . . .

Don't leave me baby
things are gonna work out fine
don't leave me baby
think I'm goin' outta my mind
don't leave me baby
don't leave me behind!

( Beep, beep . . . beep, beep, yeah!
Beep, beep . . . beep, beep, yeah! )

( Beep, beep . . . beep, beep, yeah!
Beep, beep . . . beep, beep, yeah! )

The willow weeps
and having wept
can weep no more
but still it cries for me
it cries in sympathy
it knows that you are gone . . .

It cries for me . . .

( Beep, beep . . . beep, beep, yeah!
Beep, beep . . . beep, beep, yeah! )

. . . the willow weeps!
