    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've dreamed
    have all gone astray

    The man that won you
    has run off and undone you
    that great beginning
    has seen a 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, goodbye
    every trick of his you're onto
    but fools will be fools
    and where's he gone to

    The road gets rougher
    it's lonlier and tougher
    with hope you burn up
    tomorrow he might turn up
    there's just no letup
    the livelong 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
