Letra (1974, Roxy)

Once in a while she don't want to call you
Speaking on the telephone
And once in your life she don't want to know you

Brad (compañía):
(Uh-uh-uh) You look around
(Uh-uh-uh) the one you found
She is gone (Uh-uh-ah)

And that's all the time (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
That it takes (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
(Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) For a heart to turn to stone (Shuru, turn to stone)
The sweeter the wine (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
The harder to make the break (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)

(Uh-uh-uh) You hear something
(Uh-uh-uh) About someone
You thought you'd known (Uh-uh-ah)

Brad y Janet:
So baby don't cry like there's no tomorrow
After the night there's brand new day
And there'll be no pain and no more sorrow

Brad y Janet (compañía):
(Uh-uh-uh So wash your face
(Uh-uh-uh And phone my place
It'll be okay (Uh-uh-ah)

Brad (compañía):
And that's all the time (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) (La-la-la-la)
That it takes (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) (La-la-la-la)
(Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) For a heart to beat again (Shuru, beat again)
So give me a sign (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
That a lover makes (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)

(Uh-uh-uh) You look around
(Uh-uh-uh) The one you found
Is back again (Uh-uh-ah)

Brad y Janet (compañía):
So baby don't cry (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
Like there's no tomorrow (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
(Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) After the night there's brand new day (Shuru, brand new day)
And there'll be no pain (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
And no more sorrow (Shuru-shu-shuru-shu)
(Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) So wash your face and phone my place
(Shuru-shu-shuru-shu) It'll be okay (It'll be okay)
