Years -we've been to -geth -er, Seems we can't get a -long;
No mat -ter what I do, It don't ap -peal to you.
Makes no diff -'rence wheth -er I am right or I'm wrong.
If we can't be sweet -hearts, This much you can do:
Please Don't Talk A -bout Me When I'm Gone,
Oh, hon -ey, though our friend -ship ceas -es, from now on;
And, lis -ten, if you can't say an -y thing -real nice,
It's bet -ter not to talk at all, is my ad -vice.
We're part -ing, you go your way go mine, it's I'll that we do; best
Here's a kiss! I hope that this brings lots of luck to you.
Makes no diff -'rence how I car -ry on, Re -mem -ber,
Please Don't Talk A -bout Me When I'm Gone.
