Why Be So Unkind To Me?

Why Be So Unkind To Me?

(R.Stanley / Tolchard Evans / H.Tilsley)

Ray Noble & His New Mayfair Orchestra

Now you pass me by
Pass without a sign
Why be so unkind to me

Now you have a heart
To decide we part
Why be so unkind to me

I did my best for you
Helped to pull you through
Gave you love and sympathy

Now you wear a frown
Now you done me down
Why be so unkind to me
