(Dear One, dear one, dear one)
When the mailman came to our house this mornin'
I was waitin' right there for him at the door
But when I opened up and read your last letter
Then I knew that I would wait for him no more
'Cause you said, dear One, there's somethin' that I have to tell you,
Dear one, there's somethin' that I have to say, yay-yay,
Dear one, he's tall, dark, well you know how it is,
And dear one, he stole my heart away.
Ah please don't cry, (please don't cry ) try not to be sad (try not to be sad)
I tried and I tried (I tried and I tried) not to hurt you bad (not to hurt you bad)
I tried so hard (I tried so hard) not to give in (not to give in)
But I lost my head and I lost my heart and I lost your love to him
[Chorus x 3]
Oh, dear one, he stole my heart away.
Ah, dear one, he stole my heart away.
Oh, dear one...
He stole my heart away.
