Sue, dry your pretty eyes of blue, Tears were never meant for you,
Smile a while please do, Sue.
Dear, don't believe the things you hear,
You know I'm lonely for only sweet you:
Ev'ry star above, Knows the one I love,
Sweet Sue, Just you.
And the moon up high, Knows the reason why,
Sweet Sue, It's you.
No one else it seems, Ever shares my dreams,
And without you dear, I don't know what I'd do.
In this heart of mine, You live all the time,
Sweet Sue, Just you.
