Because you said you loved me more,

O, how could those big brown eyes lie?

The pretty red flags I ignored.

Our cottage perched along Maine’s shore—

Some called it a pie in the sky,

Because you said you loved me more.

Then one day I found on the floor,

A love note meant just for your eyes.

The pretty red flags I ignored.

That night I waited by the door

For surely you could clarify

Because you said you loved me more

One look at you told me the score

The whole town knew better than I.

The pretty red flags I ignored.

I will not share you with some whore;

Dear, this is our final goodbye.

Because you said you loved me more,

The pretty red flags I ignored.
