"Promises, Promises [From the Broadway Musical: Promises, Promises]" as written by and Burt F/david Bacharach....
You promised you would be true to me
But we both know you could never be
You've been puttin' me on since the day we met
Promises, promises, that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get

And then you promised me a ring
A wedding gown and all of them things
I ain't seen no diamond yet
Promises, promises, that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get

Promises, promises, that's all I get
All you gave me since the day we met
You'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises, promises, that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get

And now you tell me you're goin' away
You swear to me that this time you'll stay
I can't believe I'm rid of you yet
Promises, promises, that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get

Promises, promises, that's all I get
All you gave me since the day we met
You'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises, promises, that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get
Promises, promises, that's all I get
