Darling, if someday some writer should say
I'll write a song for only you to sing
Whoa, I'd tell him of our broken love
And call it 'The Song of the Lonely Teen'
I'd say, ?Write it pretty, keep the tune good and blue
It don't have to rhyme but the opening line
Must say, 'Darling, I still love you'?
So darling, if someday your new love slips away
And leaves you alone with no song to sing
Just remember me, make up your own melody
And sing 'The Song of the Lonely Teen'
