When You See Another Sweetie Hanging Around Lyrics

You watned to see me cry,
The day that you said good-bye,
You kinda thought that when you wandered away,
On my knees I’d beg you to stay,

I have you my heart complete
They say that revenge is sweet
But I know you very well
More than words can tell

You will kneel at my feet

Chorus

When you see another sweetie hanging around
When you read the love light in his eyes
You’ll get wise, believe me,
When you see another’s arms go twining around

All these things will make you realize
You’re jealous so, you’re bound to know,
That old time saying, Tell how does it go, oh!
absence makes the heart grow fonder
When you see another sweetie hanging around
That’s the time you’ll want to come back to me.

Second Verse

You may not believe me now,
But some day you will I vow
And when you feel like no one wants you around
Then your thoughts will start homeward bound

You’re longing to say good-bye
And when all my tears are dry
Then you’ll come back again
And you’ll plead in vain

This will be my reply
