That'll Be The Day: The Lyrics

Well that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you gonna leave you know it's a lie 'cause
That'll be the day, when I die

Well give me all your lovin' and your turtle dovin'
All your hugs and kisses and your money too
Well you know you love me baby, still here ya tell me baby
That some day well I'll be true

Well that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you gonna leave you know it's a lie 'cause
That'll be the day, when I die

Well that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you gonna leave you know it's a lie 'cause
That'll be the day, when I die

Well when Cupid shot his dart, he shot it at your heart
So if we ever part, then I'll leave you
You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly
That some day well I'll be true

Well that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you gonna leave you know it's a lie 'cause
That'll be the day, when I die

Well that'll be the day
Well that'll be the day
Well that'll be the day
Well that'll be the day
