"Play Me a Hurtin' Tune" as written by Sylvia Dee and Sidney Lippman....
Play me a hurtin' tune
I want to an old time hurtin' tune
Make me sigh, make me cry
Make me want to lay down an' die!

Oh! Play me a hurtin' tune
A tear your heart out hurtin' tune
Of a true, sweetheart who
lost her lover an' feels so blue

I love those "How could you be so cruel,
treatin' me like a fool?" songs!
I love those "Now that I know we're through,
what am I gonna do?" songs!

Please! Play me a hurtin' tune
I want to an old time hurtin' tune
Make me sad an' I'll be glad
'Cause I feel so good when I feel so bad!

( We love to feel so sad, we love to feel so bad,
go on an' beat me, mistreat me, go ahead an' cheat me,
I like it, I like it, we like it! )

Ah! Make me sigh ( make me cry! )
Make me want to lay down an' die!

A tear your heart out hurtin' tune
Of a true, sweetheart who
lost her lover an' feels so blue

I love those . . . ( "How could you be so cruel,
treat me like a fool?" songs! )
I love those . . . ( "Now that I know we're through,
what am I gonna do?" songs! )

Please! Play me a hurtin' tune
I want to an old time hurtin' tune
Make me sad an' I'll be glad
'Cause I feel so good when I feel so bad!

Oh look it girls, he's playin' our song!
Play us a hurtin' tune
We want to an old time hurtin' tune
Make us sad, we'll be glad
'Cause we feel so good when we feel so sad!
