lyrics

I keep the six of hearts
Beside my lonesome bed
To remember the love
That I once had

She was two times the woman
and sweeter than four puppy dogs
And had six times the heart
Of any other girl

She was too good to me
For no reason I could see
I was lovesick
so I got down on one knee

She said, “I can’t take that diamond ring,
You can't afford that shiny thing
And the pollen makes you sick
so we better to wait till after spring”

She was two times the woman
and sweeter than four puppy dogs
And had six times the heart
Of any other girl

Summer came and went
I got no call or letter sent
Until I got a postcard in the mail
from the Orient

It read, “don’t wait up too long
I’m moving up, I’m moving on
And I’ve found another love
who doesn’t cry when the flowers have sprung"

I keep the six of hearts
Beside my lonesome bed
To remember the love
That I once had

She was a two timing woman
and meaner than four junkyard dogs
And broke six times the hearts
Of any other girl
