Sweet thing, I'm writing this letter to you
Your name will be blotted with tears
Please read it and answer, and tell me it's true
Your love will remain through the years

Sweet thing, love you, you know that it's true
Don't you remember that day
As we grow older, I know you'll forget
That's why I'm writing this way

I want to be loved but only by you
That's why tonight I'm so sad
I know that another has gained that reward
A love that I wanted so bad

* Refrain
