Noreen

Refrain:

Noreen, Noreen, you make me so blue.

Noreen, why can’t you be true?

Noreen, no getting over you!

***

You said, you’d be there for me.

I guess, I should have asked where.

You took my car.  Said, you’d get some gas and some air.

Noreen, Noreen, Noreen.

***

Refrain:

Noreen, Noreen, you make me so blue.

Noreen, why can’t you be true?

Noreen, there’s no getting over you!

***

You took my money, when I paid your rent.

You told me honey, I was heaven sent.

I tried to call you on the telephone.

But, it keeps telling me that, you’re not home, Noreen.

***

Noreen, Noreen, you make me so blue.

Noreen, why can’t you be true?

Noreen, there’s no getting over you!

***

I saw your picture at the neighborhood bar.

They’re placing bets to figure where you are.

I placed a tip and headed out the door.

Guys are telling me, she did it one more, Noreen.

***

Refrain:

Noreen, Noreen, you make me so blue.

Noreen, why can’t you be true?

Noreen, there’s no getting over you!

***

There’s no getting over you!
