"If It Don't Work Out" as written by and R. Argent....
When she love me nothing in the world
Can touch her loving now
The light of love has gone
Can I return the joy she's dreaming of
I don't know
I don't know

But if it don't work out
The tears that I cried, babe
(If it don't work out)
Won't bring her home
(If it don't work out)
If it don't work out

Will she still care for me
The way she did before, well
She turned around and tells me
She don't love me anymore
I don't know
I don't know

But if it don't work out
The tears that I cried, babe
(If it don't work out)
Won't bring her home
(If it don't work out)
If it don't work out

But if I could forget
The tears and the crying
That I went through
Once before
Maybe my love, could start
Start again

One day I know we'll find
The candle that we had
And I
Will know and feel
The joys and pleasures
That I'm dreaming of
And I don't know
I don't know

But if it don't work out
The tears that I cried, babe
(If it don't work out)
Won't bring her home
(If it don't work out)
If it don't work out

But if it don't work out
If it don't work out
If it don't work out
If it don't work out

    General CommentRod Argent originally wrote this and gave it to Dusty Springfield b/c she liked the Zombies a great deal. And asked Rod to write a song for her. He agreed and this is what he wrote for her. The Zombies were bummed at first b/c Rod told them he was just going to give the song to Dusty. They thought it would have been a potential hit for them. Later they recorded it and it's on their box set- Zombie Heaven. While it never became a hit song for the Zombies it did sell well for Dusty Springfield.

    The song describes how relationships sour even if one person still wants to pursue it. He desperately hopes for the day that things will be as they were, when they were in love, but the reality of that ever happening is slim. He contemplates how it will be if it doesn't work out for him.
