BYE YA

music by Thelonious Monk, lyric by Teri Roiger

My baby he left me
He went for a long walk
He wandered off too far
Now he's gone and there's no more talk

I wondered what went wrong
He came to me so strong
And then he just vanished
Now our love has been banished

Day after day, I tried to appease him
Night after night, I never could please or tease him
'Cause he wasn't in

He promised me laughter
And love ever after
I woke up one morning
He said BYE with no warning
