"The Whole Town's Laughing at Me" as written by and Marshall/wortham Sherman....
The whole town's laughing at me

Yeah, I had your love right here
In the palm of my hands
And I lost it and I lost it
Had a love so new, one a man feel
And I lost it and I lost it

Maybe if I had spent more time with you
Maybe then, maybe then you'd still be mine
Oh and only if I had been just a little more kind to you
There'd be no need, for this man to be cryin'

The whole town's laughing at me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good friend?

Had my dream so near
I could reach out and touch it
And I lost it and I lost it
Had a world complete
It was, oh, so sweet
And I lost it and I lost it

Maybe if I had spent just a little more time with you
Maybe then, maybe then you still be mine
Oh and only if I had been just a little more kind to you
There'd be no need, for this man to be cryin'

The whole town's laughing at me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good friend? Oh

Maybe if I had spent more time with you
Maybe then, maybe then you still be mine
Maybe I think about it
And only if I had been just a little more kind to you
There'd be no need, for this man to be cryin'

The whole town's laughing at me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good friend?
The whole town's laughing at me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good friend?
The whole town's laughing at me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good friend?

    General CommentIn modern-day language, this guy had the girl, knew that she liked him, but for whatever reason, he did not treat her like someone he was serious about. He probably decided to go "ghost" on her at some point, meaning losing contact with her because he thought that since she was a good girl, she would be waiting when he decided to return. Meanwhile, when she does not hear from him over the course of a couple of weeks, she goes through some self-esteem issues wondering why he left her. Was there something wrong with her? What did she do that made him lose interest? The guy--realizing at some point, that he had something very special after his quest for finding something better doesn't yield any results--contacts the girl out of nowhere. She entertains him for a bit, but he never apologizes for the pain she went through, probably because he doesn't understand the depths of her pain. Everything seems fine for a day or two, but she no longer trusts him as he goes ghost and there are pockets of time where he can't be found. So, realizing she doesn't want this type of unstable love, she decides to let him go. Now, he is going crazy because he thought that he was God's gift to her, but in truth, it was the other way around.
