Perry Como - "That's The Beginning Of The End" lyrics

When she don't sweet talk anymore,
Her kiss ain't like it was before,
It's time you added up the score, my friend,
That's the beginning of the end.

She keeps you waitin' for a date,
Makes no excuse for bein' late,
Wake up an' recognize your fate, my friend,
That's the beginning of the end.

What she's doing to you, she did to me,
But I was in love, so how could I see,
Better get wise, better beware,
Or one of these days you'll turn around
an' she won't be there!

Don't say that you were never told,
I know that character of old,
When she starts strayin' from the fold, my friend,
That's the beginning of the end!

Don't say that you were never told,
I know that character of old,
When she starts strayin' from the fold, my friend,
That's the beginning of the end!

That's the beginning of the end!
