"An Empty Cup (And A Broken Date)" as written by and Norman Petty Roy Orbison....
One lonely night at this drive-in
(One lonely night at this drive-in)
And now I know what a fool I've been
(And now I know what a fool I've been)

She was to meet me
(An empty cup, a broken date)
We had a date
(A broken date, an empty cup)
A date at seven, I dreamed of heaven
Now it?s way past eight

She just drove by with another guy
(She just drove by with another guy)
No wonder I can't help but cry
(No wonder I, by and by)

An empty cup, a broken date
Now it?s way past eight
An empty cup, a broken date

To think she never cared
(An empty cup, a broken date)
Just tears me up
(A broken date, an empty cup)
Now all I have to show for love
Is this empty cup

Just like this Coke my love is gone
(Just like this Coke my love is gone)
I've hit the bottom now I'm all alone
(All alone)
