​Get Out Your Handkerchief

This song is by Ashford & Simpson and appears on the album A Musical Affair (1980).

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 bear to live alone with it, so

Repeat Refrain

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

Repeat Refrain

I hope you've got the time
I hate to trouble you or knock on your door
I knew you'd understand
'Cause that's what friends are for, so

Repeat Refrain

Feel the rain fall from the sky
Falling down on you and I
Maybe you won't
Maybe you will
But when I'm through with you
You're gonna know just how I feel, so

Repeat Refrain

Are you ready for this
It's that old love story where one is left behind
But the only difference is
The heartache is mine. Please

Repeat Refrain
