BURL IVES (1961) - A Little Bitty Tear

‚Äč

A little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

You said you were leaving tomorrow
That today was our last day
I said there'd be no sorrow
That I'd laugh when you walked away

But a little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

I said I'd laugh when you left me
Pull a funny as you went out the door
That I'd have another one waiting
And I'd wave goodbye as you go

But a little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
But a little bitty tear let me down

Everything went like a planned it
And really put on quite a show
In my heart I felt I could stand it
'Til you walked with your grip through the door

Then a little bitty tear let me down
Spoiled my act as a clown
I had it made up not make a frown
Oh, but a little bitty tear let me down
A little bitty tear let me down
