Perry Como - "Hit And Run Affair" lyrics

I really thought I knew it all concerning sweet romance
'Cause when it came to purdy girls I'd always take a chance
I felt that I could handle love with just a little luck
Then all at once you hit me like a ten tonne diesel truck!

Hit an' run, hit an' run, you left me cryin' there
Wasted love, a victim of a hit an' run affair!
Had your fun, now you're done, my bleeding heart is bare
Couldn't see that it would be a hit an' run affair!

The way that Grant took Richmond, was the way you captured me
You roped me and ya tied me, I was helpless as can be!
You told me purdy stories and you said you'd never stray
Ya picked me up an' knocked me down, and then you ran away!

Hit an' run, hit an' run, you left me cryin' there
Wasted love, a victim of a hit an' run affair!
Had your fun, now you're done, my bleeding heart is bare
Couldn't see that it would be a hit an' run affair!

Hit an' run, hit an' run, you left me cryin' there
Wasted love, a victim of a hit an' run affair!
Had your fun, now you're done, my bleeding heart is bare
Couldn't see that it would be a hit an' run affair!
