You don't love me, I can feel it
No use tryin' to conceal that
You been fakin' feelin's for me too long

So lay back baby, let the leavin'
Find you any way but grievin'
When you face your future fortunes on your own

'Cause we'd both feel sad and sorry
If the leavin's left alone
'Cause we're too tired of tryin', and worn out from puttin' on
And there's no use spendin' good times
On some worn out alibi
When we'd both be left with livin' a lovin' lie

So long baby, good luck to ya
Nothin' less that that would do ya
That's the shortest way I know to say so long

'Cause I believe that I'll be leavin'
All your rights left to believe in
On this early mornin' grievin' leavin' dawn

'Cause we'd both feel sad and sorry
If the leavin's left alone
'Cause we're too tired of tryin', and worn out from puttin' on
And there's no use spendin' good times
On some worn out alibi
When we'd both be left with livin' a lovin' lie
