  • Broken-hearted meelody
    Once you were our song of love
    Now you just keep taunting me
    With the memory of (ba da da)
    His tender love, oh
    Broken-hearted melody
    Must you keep reminding me
    Of the lips I long to kiss
    And the love I miss since he went away
    Night and day they play
    That broken-hearted melody
    That he used to sing to me
    When our love was young and bright
    As he held me tight
    Suddenly I found
    I was out of bound

    Broken-hearted melody
    Once you were a song of love
    Now you just keep taunting me
    With the memory of (ba da da)
    His tender love, oh
    Broken-hearted melody
    Won't you bring him back to me
    Sing to him until he hears
    For when he returns no more will he be
    A broken-hearted melody
    Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, oo-oo, ooh
    Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh Writer/s: Hal David, Sherman Edwards
