One Less Bell to Answer

One Less Bell to Answer

Shirley Bassey

One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after
I should be happy

But all I do is cry (Cry, cry, no more laughter)
Oh, I should be happy (Oh, why did he go)
I only know that since he left my life's so empty

Though I try to forget, it just can't be done
Each time the doorbell rings I still run (I still run)
I don't know how in the world to stop thinking of him
'Cause I still love him so (Love him so)
I end each day the way I start out crying my heart out

Oh, one less man to pick up after
No more laughter, no more love
Since he went, oh, he went away (He went away)
(One less bell to answer) Why did he leave me
(Oh, why, why did he leave)

Now I've got one less egg to fry (One less bell to answer)
One less egg to fry (Oh, why, why did he leave)
And all I do is cry
(One less bell to answer) Because a man told me goodbye
(Oh, why, why did he leave)

Somebody tell me please (One less bell to answer)
Where did he go, why did he go (Oh, why, why did he leave)
How could he leave me
