  • I just got out my little red book
    The minute that you said good-bye
    I thumbed right through my little red book
    I wasn't gonna sit and cry
    And I went from A to Z
    I took out every pretty girl in town
    They danced with me
    And while I held them
    All I did was to talk about you
    Hear your name and I'd start to cry
    There is just no getting over you

    No girl who's in my little red book
    Just ever could replace your love
    And each girl in my little red book
    Knows you're the one I'm thinking of
    Won't you please come back to me?
    Without your precious love I can't go on
    Where can you be?
    I need you so much
    All I do is to talk about you
    Hear your name and I start to cry
    There is just no getting over you, no, no, no

    Won't you please come back to me?
    Without your precious love I can't go on
    Where can you be?
    I need you so much
    All I do is to talk about you
    Hear your name and I start to cry
    There is just no getting over you, no, no

    All I do is to talk, talk about you
    Hear your name and I start to cry
    Well, there is just no getting over you, no, no

    All I do is to talk, talk, talk
    Hear your name and I start to cry
    There is just no getting over you Writer/s: Burt Bacharach, Hal David
