"Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder" as written by and Wainwright....
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
And the mind begins to wander back
to happier days.

I guess you'd say you were taken for granted
I went on and on and I raved and I ranted,oh--
My tyrannical ways.

Bridge 1
But now things are different,
Cause now you are gone,
I'm not so sure
I can carry on.

Always knew you were important to me
But now I know you are a necessity, otherwise--
I start to go insane.

Things weren't easy when we were together,
We had plenty of days of lousy weather
I'm in a hurricane.


Bridge 2
I'm gonna grieve,
I'm gonna moan.
Cause you're not here,
I'm all alone.

The joke's on me
You get the last laugh
I found out the hard way you was my better half, and now-
I'm the worse for the wear.

When I see you again expect some champagne wine,
On Valentine's Day expect a valentine
Cause now I know
How much I care.

How much I care.
