​Get Out You Handkerchief

This song is by Ashford & Simpson.

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Get ready for this

It's a real humdinger
It's gonna sting a bit
But I can't back
To live alone with it so

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

It's a sad, sad story
How I did my lover wrong
And went out to play
I gambled my everything
And now I've got to pay so

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
I hope you got time

Hate to trouble you
But knock on your door
Do you understand?
'Cause what are friends for so

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

Feel the rain fall from the sky
Falling down on you and I

Maybe it won't
Maybe it will
Oh, but when I'm through with you
You're gonna know just how I feel, so

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Well, are you ready for this?

It's that old love story
Where one is left behind
The only difference is
The heartache is mine, please

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

Feel the rain falling from the sky
Falling down on you and I

Maybe you won't
Maybe you will
Oh, but when I'm through with you
You gonna know just how I feel so

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

It's too sad, it's too sad
Feels so bad, feels so bad

It's too sad, it's too sad
Something I wish
I never, never had so

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry

Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
Get out your handkerchief
You're gonna cry
