(originally by Sam Cooke)

Oh, I'm gonna -- I'm gonna forget about you [background singers chorus 2x]

[Bobby:] Oh, baby! -- You're drying to be crazy, listen --

[Bobby singing:]
I didn't sleep, awake for all night long
Waiting by my telephone -- [with background singers singing, "Ooo Oooh"]
You said you'd call me about a quarter to ten
But you went and stood me up again
I don't know what you're gonna do -- Ohm baby!

I'm gonna forget about you

Don't try tell me that ya saw it
Whooooaaaa! -- Gimme that same old line!
"I know boy -- if I take you back
You'd make me lose my my mind!"

Oh, I'm gonna -- I'm gonna forget about you [background singers chorus 4x]

Ohhh, Sometimes
Listen
I'm gonna snatch your picture of my wall
And then I'm going on out and have myself a ball -- [with background singers singing, "Ooo Oooh"]
Too many fishes in the deep blue sea

[Bobby talking:]
That's what ya doin girl for me to let you make a fool out of me

I don't know what you're gonna do but
I'm gonna forget about you
You're drivin me so tired and blue

Oh, I'm gonna -- I'm gonna forget about you [background singers chorus 4x]
