"One Less Bell To Answer"

(As recorded by the Fifth Dimension)
HAL DAVID
BURT BACHARACH

One less bell to answer, one less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
I should be happy, but all I do is cry
Oh I should be happy, I only know that
Since he left my life's so empty

Though I try to forget, it just can't be done
Each time the doorbell rings I still run
I don't know how in the world to stop thinking of him,
'Cause I still love him so
I end each day the way I start out,
Cryin' my heart out

Oh one less man to pick up after
No more laughter, no more love
Since he went, oh he went away
Why did he leave me

Now I've got one less egg to fry, one less egg to fry
And all I do is cry, because my man told me goodbye
Somebody tell me please, where do he go, why did he go
Tell me how could he leave me.
