Who's got eyes as black as tar?
That melt and drip and burn and scar,
Who's got eyes as black as tar?
It's the lady at the bar.

And who's that standing at the door?
She said don't come round here no more,
So who's that standing at the door?
I don't know you anymore.

Try, try, try my hardest,
Well I,
Try, try, try my hardest,
Well I.

Hey now what's the big idea?
Don't bring those good looks round here,
What's the matter with my heart?
It's the girl with eyes like tar.

So who's that standing at the door?
She said don't come round here no more,
So who's that standing at the door?
I don't know you anymore.

I try, try, try my hardest,
Well I,
Try, try, try my hardest,
Well I

    General CommentI'm not sure exactly what the chorus is saying, but I think it sounds a lot like "Try, try, try, my heart is a fly." That might not be right, either, but there's no way it sounds like "Try, try, try my hardest, well I..."
