(My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers    (1964)

Oh the love you promised would be mine forever
I would have bet my bottom dollar on
Well it sure turned out to be a short "forever"
Just once I turned by back and you were gone

From now on all my friends are gonna be strangers
I'm all through ever trusting anyone
The only thing I can count on now is my fingers
I was a fool believing in you, and now you are gone

It amazes me not knowing any better
Than to think I had a love that would be true
Well I should be taken out and tarred and feathered
To have let myself be taken in by you

From now on all my friends are gonna be strangers
I'm all through ever trusting anyone
The only thing I can count on now is my fingers
I was a fool believing in you, and now you are gone
I was a fool believing in you, and now you are gone
