Until that man came along


UNTIL THAT MAN CAME ALONG

Once I was happy, my life was a dream
But now everything has gone wrong
One happy couple, a wonderful team
Until that man came along

Once I had romance, a love that was true
The yearning between us was strong
Two people sticking together like glue
Until that man came along

That man came along, and he’s stolen my wife
And made me unhappy, for the rest of my life
Like a thief in the night, he took her away
Now my future looks gloomy, only grief and dismay

We would go dancing, then go for a drink
Then down to the club for a song
Walking home slowly, our arms we would link
Until that man came along

She would start singing, while cooking a meal
And I would join in with her song
Such happy moments, so lovely to feel
Until that man came along

That man came along, and he’s stolen my wife
And made me unhappy, for the rest of my life
Like a thief in the night, he took her away
Now my future looks gloomy, only grief and dismay

Once there was a moon, that shined up in the sky
And stars in the heavenly plane
Once there was a sky, so beautifully blue
Now there’s only dark clouds and rain
