I stood a-watchin' all night long

I stood a-watchin' all night long

I stood a-watchin' till you went away

You were a girl of many charms

Oh, how I loved you in my arms

I never thought that you would ever go

'cause I loved you so


CHORUS

Oh, uh, Susie darlin'

I thought you knew

You were all the world to me

All my dreams come true


I stood a-cryin' all night long

I stood a-cryin' all night long

Cryin' wishin' you'd come back to me-ee

Thinking of all the dreams we knew

Now that you're gone they won't come true

My heart is empty without you

Nothin' there but misery


CHORUS


Now-ow I stand a-watchin' all night long

I stand a-watchin' all night long

Knowing that life has nothing left for me-ee

I'll wait around most patiently

Hopin' you will return to me

Till that happy day I will always be

Watchin' all night long


Oh, uh, Susie darlin'

I thought you knew

You were all the world to me

All my dreams come true
