lyrics

Silly Silly Silly
That's how I feel
When I ask you out on a date
but I'm sittin' at the movies
with an empty seat
'Cause you're 90 minutes late

Silly Silly Silly
'Cause I thought you were keen
To share a kiss or three
Like the stars who chase each other
'cross the silver screen
Aw, but silly silly me.

I bought a new pair of pants
and a new pair of shoes
And a stylish shirt from Sears
But if my sweetheart won't give me
the time of day
then all I'll be wearin' is tears

Silly silly silly
As I hear the news
That you were hit by a delivery truck
As you were walking 'cross the street
towards the picture shows
Oh well, now isn't that such silly luck

I guess you loved me after all
despite my silly ideas
and it was me you were gonna meet
I'm still upset that you're dead,
but silly silly me
I got such silly tappin' feet!
Let's tap!

(Tap dance interlude)

Aw, silly silly silly silly silly me,
Silly silly silly me.
