You broke your promise
So yes, you broke your promise
And now I’m all alone and blue
[so alone without you]

You said you loved me,
Oh yes, you said you loved me,
And not a word you said was true.
[What did I do?]

You promised you’d be mine forever
[I didn’t know you heard it]
And we would never, never, ever part
[It must have been my brother]

But you broke your promise
So yes, you broke your promise,
And that is how you broke my heart.

[My darling, don’t despair, there’s still another chorus]
[instrumental]
Wish I’d got a dollar every time he made me holler …
[instrumental]
There’s no mirror on his shelf, he’s so mean he hates himself.
[instrumental]
Nothing left for me to say, come on boys you better play …

[instrumental]
All: You broke your promise,
Oh yes, you broke your promise,
And now I’m all alone and blue …

Dorothy Shay: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 …

All: You said you loved me,
Oh yes, you said you loved me,
And not a word you said was true.

Dorothy Shay: 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 …

All: You promised you’d be mine
Forever and ever and ever …
And we would never, ever part …

Dorothy Shay: But you broke your promise
Oh yes, you broke your promise
And that is how you broke my heart.
Yes that is how you broke …
[That is how you broke …]
My heart!
