(written by B.Cook)

- (#12 in 1961)

Well, you can have her, I don't want her,
She didn't love me anyway.
She only wanted someone to play with
But all I wanted was love to stay.

Well, you get stuck with the wrong woman
There's only one thing that you can do:
Just dig a hole and jump right in it,
And pull the ground right over you.

(Chorus)
Well, you can have her (you can have her) I don't want her ( I don't
want her),
She didn't love me (didn't love me ) anyway (anyway).
She only wanted (only wanted) someone to play with (one to lay with)
But all I wanted (all I wanted) was love to stay (was love to stay).

The girl I love, she, up and left me,
She ran away with my best friend.
Comes home at night just for an hour
When day light comes she's gone again.

(Chorus)

Life without love is mighty empty,
But confession's good for the soul.
I'd rather have love that I can cling to
Than have the world and all of it's gold.

(You can have her) you can have her, (I don't want her) I don't want
her,
(She didn't love you) She didn't love me, (anyway) anyway.
(She only wanted) she only wanted (someone to play with) some one to
play with
(But all I wanted) Ohhhhhhhh!(was love to stay)Ohhhhhhhhh!

You can have her (you can have her)
IIiiiiiiii don't want her (I don't want her)
She didn't love me (didn't love me) anyway (anyway)
She only wanted (only wanted) someone to play with (someone to play
with)
But all I want (all I want)
All I want (all I want)
All I want (all I want)
All I want (all I want) . . . .
