don’t that beat all i ever heard, dear
don’t that beat every single word
you say you’ve changed your mind
oh baby, that’s unkind
they say that love is blind
the more i look, the more i find.
don’t that beat all i ever saw, dear
don’t that beat all and that’s for sure
more fool that other guy
he’s gonna get the old go-by
well, well, don’t that beat all.
play the sad, sad, story
you change your lovers fast
so our affair is past
but now the die is cast
and he lasts longest who lasts last
there’s one thing more i wanna say, dear.
when you come begging back one day
i’ll take one look at you
and then i’ll tell you what you can do.
well, well, ha-ha,
don’t that beat all.
