YOU LOST THE SWEETEST BOY
Mary Wells


(Oh yeah)x4

You had the sweetest boy in the world

Without a doubt you were the envy of every girl

You're the kind that's never satisfied

You want every boy to pass you by

But the tables turned (the tables turned)

'Cause his words tell you're done

Now the hurt's on you

Your little scheme backfired, it's true

You thought it was fun to make the boys run


CHORUS:

You lost the sweetest boy that you had that time

The sweetest boy that you had


'Cause now he's hangin' around my door

More happier than before

Now you're in misery 'cause you lost him to me

Now the hurt's on you, now the hurt's on you

Your little scheme backfired, it's true

You made bets, any boy you could get

(chorus)


(instrumental)


(Oh yeah)x4

Yes, your loss is my gain

'Cause straight into my arms he came

You want every boy to pass you by

Now the hurt's on you, now the hurt's on you

Your little scheme backfired, it's true

Now tears of regret just covered your face

(repeat chorus and fade)
