The lyrics to today’s song:

Sad Movies / Sue Thompson

Sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry
He said he had to work so I went to the show alone
They turned down the lights and turned the projector on
And just as the news of the world started to begin
I saw my darlin’ and my best friend walk in
Though I was sittin’ there they didn’t see
And so they sat right down in front of me
When he kissed her lips I almost died
And in the middle of the color cartoon I started to cry.
Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry
Oh-oh-oh sa-a-a-d movies always make me cry
And so I got up and slowly walked on home
And so I got up and slowly walked on home
And mama saw the tears and said “what’s wrong”?
And so to keep from telling her a lie
I just said “sa-a-a-d movies make me cry”
