Pick Me Up On Your Way Down    (1958)

You were mine for just a while.
Now you're puttin' on the style.
And you never once looked back,
At your home across the tracks.

You're the gossip of the town,
But my heart can still be found,
Where you tossed it on the ground:
Pick me up on your way down.

Pick me up on your way down,
When you're blue and all alone.
When that glamor starts to bore you,
Come on back where you belong.
You may be their pride and joy,
But they'll find another toy.
Then they'll take away your crown:
Pick me up on your way down.

They have changed your attitude,
Made you hearty and so rude.
Your new friends can take the blame:
Underneath you're just the same.
When you learn these things are true,
I'll be waitin' here for you:
As you tumble to the ground,
Pick me up on your way down.

Pick me up on your way down,
When you're blue and all alone.
When that glamor starts to bore you,
Come on back where you belong.
You may be their pride and joy,
But they'll find another toy.
Then they'll take away your crown:
Pick me up on your way down.

Then they'll take away your crown:
Pick me up on your way down.
