Verse:
Oh! you mean -ie mi -nie mo, When you let me go,
You left me in the mid -dle of next week.
When you said you'd let me go Did I hol -ler "No",
Now the tears are rol -ling down my cheek.
 
Chorus:
Boo -Hoo, You've got me cry -ing for you,
And as I sit here and sigh,
Says I "I can't be -lieve it's true."
Boo -Hoo, I'll tell my ma -ma on you,
The lit -tle game that you played,
Has made her ba -by oh! so blue.
You left me in the lurch,
You left me wait -ing at the church.
Boo -Hoo, That's why I'm cry -ing for you,
Some day you'll feel like I do,
And you'll be Boo -hoo -hoo -in' too.
