  • In the beginning
    You really loved me
    I was too blind
    I couldn't see

    But now you've left me
    Oh! how I cry
    You don't miss your water
    Till the well runs dry

    I kept you crying
    Sad and blue
    I was a playboy
    I wouldn't be true

    But when you left me
    And said 'bye-bye'
    I missed my water
    My well ran dry

    I sit and wonder
    How can this be?
    I never thought
    You'd never leave me

    But now you've left me
    Oh! how I cry
    You don't miss your water
    Till the well runs dry

    You don't miss your water
    Till the well runs dry Writer/s: WILLIAM BELL
