Lyrics
Hey, girl, I know he's put you down
For every new love that he has found
Hey, girl, I know your feelin' sad...
Sad and blue
And you think the trouble's not in him
The trouble's in you. (No!)

I know he's only tryin' to score
I've seen him, I've seen him
Breakin' hearts before
Don't try to put him down
(Don't let him get you down)
He's the boy I want around
(He's not the only boy around)
And you...you shouldn't be so blue.

I know there'll be another time
But I'll be his
(No, you'll be mine)
Hey, girl, although your feelin' sad...
(I'm sad! I'm...)
Sad and blue!
Just remember while your feelin' bad
I'm waitin' for you, yeah.

Don't try to put him down!
(Don't let him get you down)
He's the boy I want around and you
(You know I'll always be around)
And you...you shouldn't be so blue.
