Eine Frau verdeutlicht ihren Frust, weil sie betrogen worden ist:
I never thought when I met you
It would come to this;
I'm sorry now that I let you
Even steal a kiss
There is no one so hateful
As the one who's unfaithful:
You're cheatin' on me, cheatin' on me;
You're not the kind of sweetheart I hoped you'd be.
I trusted you,
Thought you'd be true;
My love was so strong that I went along
Never dreaming you'd do me wrong.
Love is a game and I've played on the square,
But you're the kind who can never play fair;
I may forgive, but sure as you live
Someday you're going to be sorry you cheated on me.
I was told you were deceiving
From the very start;
Still I kept right on believing
I was in your heart.
Never once did I doubt you;
Now I know all about you.
Don't try to lie I know all that you've done;
Each butterfly has to pay for her fun;
I may forgive you, but sure as you live

Bei You Tube habe ich einen Clip mit o.g. Song ohne Gesang vorgetragen von Don Clark's Orchestra aus dem Jahr 1925 gefunden.
